    Hi all

    I’m planning to lay a porcelain patio but I’d like to edge it flush in granite. I can’t seem to figure out how to do it and wondered if you could advise.

    I’m laying a 20mm porcelain slab on a 40mm bed of mortar on a 100mm bed of type 1. I really like sawn granite setts - I think the sharp edges work well with the crisp porcelain. But they seem to come in 50mm or 75mm depths.

    Do I go with the 50mm and only have 10mm of mortar?

    Are there other options?
    - do I cut the 20mm granite paving stones (e.g. 900x600)?
    - do I use 20mm granite slips (which I can’t seem to find anywhere online but I see a few people use on YouTube.

    Thanks all.
