Assembly instructions Brick Visby Free standing

A beautiful masonry block with a tumbled finish. Mursten Visby can be built partly as low retaining walls but mainly as lovely free-standing walls for framing and boundaries in the garden.

The practical measurement means that you can easily mount the stone in half-joints and at the same time enable stylish 90 degree corners built with exactly the same type of brick as the rest of the wall. The blocks are advantageously glued together using Stenlim and then lie firmly. The tumbled surface gives an antique look and a really lively garden feeling.

Mursten Visby is produced in four lovely colours, three of which are in the gray scale and terramix gives a warm feeling with a mixed impression.

Only imagination and creativity set limits to what you can achieve with this brick. An affordable brick block that can be used throughout the entire garden project. Low retaining walls, free-standing walls, and also as curbs around ground surfaces, fun stair constructions and discount boxes for lush planting.

Visby is a lovely series of concrete series with tumbled products and you will also find paving stones in different formats and stylish curb stones in the series.

Step 1.

The first step is digging. We do this to get a load-bearing surface on which the brick will then rest. It is the bottom row of the wall that will later lay the foundation for the entire construction and it is very important to put love here. If the bottom stone is not straight, the whole wall will slide the higher you go.

Dig out a strong gutter with a depth of about 40cm and a width of about 60cm. The masonry block is 210mm wide and it is important that the bed in which the stone is to rest is well proportioned to the base surface. Roll out a fiber cloth at the bottom so that the filling material does not sink down and mix with your excavated mass.

Step 2.

Fill up with an approx. 18 cm thick layer of Bergkross 0-32 and use a soil vibrator to compact this surface well. An extra tip in this step is to start with approx. 10cm and pack, then add more crushed stone and pack the material again. The risk is that you do not beat the material all the way down if you fill everything at the same time and that the crusher at the bottom of the bed becomes porous and moves already at the first minus degrees. Then smooth a finer setting material on top. We recommend a bed thickness of approx. 3 cm of draining Macadam/Fliss 2-6, alternatively Stone flour 0-8 for this. It will be the bedding itself closest to the stone and where the wall will then rest.

Step 3

Assemble your first row with Mursten Visby, This row will end up below ground level and be the basic piece of the puzzle in your wall construction. Absolutely at least 10% of the full height of the wall must be below ground. But using a whole brick is clearly recommended for a stable foundation.

Install your first row of bricks and drive the brick down with a rubber mallet into the setting bed. On the sides of your brick, you should fall back with rock crusher for as stable a framing of the row of stones as possible. Also compact this crusher with care so you don't change the position of your bottom row of bricks. If you then want to connect with the decorative stone or grass, you can adjust the height of the backfill and then roll out fiber cloth followed by the decor itself or soil and grass seed.

Step 5

Now build further upwards with your bricks and glue them down as you go. Place your bricks in half joints. In other words, so that the new row of bricks ends up in the middle of the joint between the underlying ones. In this way, you enable a simple construction of 90° corners as the length of the stone is divisible by the width. And if you don't want to build corners but still have an angle to your wall, a stone pillar can be a nice alternative to adjoin your walls against.

In the case of a free-standing wall construction built according to the instructions above, we recommend a maximum height of approx. 60 cm above the ground.

* In some cases, a poured concrete sole can be preferred as the bottom of your wall to be able to build it a little higher. Given that variations and different types of ground conditions play a major role in recommended heights and constructions, we therefore recommend that you contact us for advice on your wall construction, intended building height for the best and most stable results.

And as a complement to Mursten Visby, there is also our stylish retaining wall Gripsholm, which can be built both freestanding and as a retaining wall. You build this wall with a locking plug as the stone is provided with grooves where the locking plug is easily placed. Here you can also choose between which side you want visible in each direction, as the wall is smooth on one side and cracked on the other.
