Nice rainy day , could either wash the floors or play around with stacking rocks .

I decided not to notch out the grid and cover it with screen . Figured if there was enough coarse subbase I wouldnít need to worry over compaction of the gravel behind the rock walls . So I trimmed back the grid to where itís just under the rock walls ; and began to stack stone.

Put some pea gravel behind the stones as the walls grew . Up to the top of second course on the left and within 2Ē or so of the top on the right .

Was able to get pretty much all save 3 stones on the top left to stay in place via gravity , no silicone or hot glue needed . Was a little shaky as to the silicone stones staying in place long term so figured a bit of glue wouldnít hurt anything .

Maybe tomorrow night Iíll try a test fill Ö.
