    That design would never have occurred to me; but it really works with the stone wall. It's a diamond surrounded by

    Looks to me like both are too far in the ground. You should be able to see a flare all the way around, that area is like
    a tree thermostat . I would remove some dirt.

    Elmers White Glue had a good run, in a lot of shops. But it is the "creepiest" of all glues. Joints shift. I don't know if
