I want to do some very simple stucco over block. I will pour a footer with rebar, let it dry, first course it, then build the blocks in an asymmetrical Southwest pattern with openings, and rolling top. I want to just put some stucco over that, probably tinted.
Do I mix stucco myself, or buy premix? Do I need a plain layer of lath over the block first? Or a layer of wet uncolored scratch coat stucco and a layer of cloth imbedded, then let dry, then a topcoat of colored? I want something that will last the longest without popping off in chunks due to our temperature swings from 15 F to 115 F, and the wet/freeze/dry cycles of rain/ snow, baking sun.
Thanks in advance.
