I'd appreciate some help on my Keystone block garden wall. It's going to be
3 courses high. I laid a good foundation course and now am starting the
second course. I discovered that on the curves, because the Keystones are
setback, they get progressively offcenter as you go around the curve. It
creates an "extra length"
How do I account for the "extra length" on the second course curve for the
setback Keystone blocks, so i can get all the blocks centered over the lower
You could lay the second course from the middle of the easily-seen curves,
outwards. Then cut or trim where they meet between the curves. Or just
don't get hung up on the issue, and tolerate the mismatches.
For only 3 courses and unless the curves are really sharp I can't see
that the offsets are going to be enough to matter. The joints won't
line up vertically by will be offest on a slant somewhat but if you
start from the same end each time, that slant will remain constant and
thus part of 'design'.
