Method of Installation
Firstly, we will apply cement as the basic flooring. Then, there is 2 methods of adding in the pebbles. The first method is just to pour it on the cement. Whilst the second method is to coat it with glue which will hold onto the pebbles. In most instance, the glue is preferred as it will be stronger to hold on to the pebbles.
