In order to maintain the required running bond, a structural corner must have the correct offset to correspond with the courses above and below. This particular corner method allows for this to be accomplished very easily. Just remember “HALF-WHOLE”. One side of the corner needs to be HALF the length of a block’s face, the other side of the corner needs to be the WHOLE length.
As shown above, the Half-Whole method allows the running bond of the wall to be maintained. The look of this style corner is more in line with the overall look of the rest of the wall. GeoStone's Half-Whole method for creating an outside corner is unique due to its large open core design.
Are very simple. Shown above, interlace the blocks, alternating on each course. Sometimes wall batter will throw this alignment off. Do not worry. It is very common to cut block to fit in corner applications. As a matter of fact, this is the place you will want to make such adjustments as they are not as easy to notice.
