The installation is simple but needs planning and proper tools. First, you will need tools such as tape measure, marker, mortar, trowel, hammer, knife, concrete fasteners, and galvanized mesh. Next, position the mesh over the concrete surface to be laid over with the artificial stone. Fasten the mesh with concrete fasteners (for wood walls, first fasten a vapor wrap on the wooden wall). Mix the mortar, then apply ½ inch coat over the mesh layer using the trowel. Let the mortar dry completely. Then ready the artificial stones, rearrange according to the order these are attached on the wall surface. Apply 1 inch mortar to the back side of the artificial stone using the trowel. Press the artificial stone against the wall until it stays fixed. Fill up the wall leaving a half-inch between each stone. Cut off rough edges. Then apply mortar in between stones to fill up spaces. Allow to dry.
