Melissa, here are some videos for the methods of laying stones. It's hard work, but fun to do.
Melissa what do you mean by chat correctly?
Hi Melissa! I have posted some links for you to take a look at. I hope that these will give you some great tips. Best wishes for a Happy Holiday season.
You require a base of 3-4 inches of sand. Level out. Lay the stones in any pattern you like. Then pour sand and a little dry cement mix into the cracks and brush over all. You can also purchase a new product which contains sand and glue for this job. You can also purchase plastic edgers which can be staked into the ground to hold the sand and stones in before you start.
