Hi guys, I have a question. I'm new in this job and I need help. I have to put some sandstone in the soil no grass and I would like to know if before the pose after creating the hole I have to put absolutely sand or I can not even put it. Thank you all for your help.
Stefano.

I have located the sandstone hole left of centre so you will know what to do when the elephant signals.

River sand would be ok or mix up some sand and cement and mud it in.

Heaps easier to get it level and it will never move.

Paving you need a compacted base of roadbase/crusher dust first, this is essential.  Then you can use (screed) river sand or crusher dust on top of this to make it perfectly level.   Same method when building a block wall/edging.  Laying directly on soil or just sand will result in the pavers/blocks moving and look uneven.
