      Well, as you have already noticed, I've boo booed with my original comment - instead of putting it in the forum - so, please bear with me and I will eventually get the hang of doing it the correct way.

      Hopefully, you'll take pity on the technology idiot and give me as much help as possible! I promise to try and do the same.

      Hey guys and gals, I'm new to this forum thing, so please forgive me if I am doing it wrong!
      Here we go ...

      In as small a nutshell as I dare: I have set myself a project of revamping my garden - grassing one part and crazy paving the other part using reclaimed paving. I've laid the mot 1, have laid and compacted the sharp sand and laid the paving stones to my required design (hey, it is "crazy" paving after all!). My dilemma? How do I set them in place? Do I use dry mortar and compact it down then point it with mortar? I know I should have thought about this before I started the job, but I'm no expert, just chuffed that I've done (or least part done) a project.

      Also, since the paving slabs are reused and therefore has built up dirt, would they adhere to the mortar?

      Thanks in advance.
