Interlocking concrete blocks also do not use a mortar for installation. A typical interlock concrete block will have a lip or lug at the bottom of it. As each course is laid the blocks interlock with one another and create a strong and durable structure. The style and method of application will generally depend on the type of application. Building structures are always recommended to be installed by the mortar method. Garden and landscaping applications can use interlocking and dry stack methods.

Another installation method for concrete blocks is the dry stack method. Sometimes hollow blocks are used for this type of method. The blocks are laid course by course without mortar. As a course is laid the finished course of blocks should be filled with a backfill material like crushed stone or gravel. The back fill helps the structure to become stable.

This type of block material is generally installed with a mortar. Before installation begins a solid foundation should be set to a depth according to the style and type of installation. As each course of concrete block is laid cement based mortar should be smoothened to the concrete block as it is applied. The mortar works by bonding each concrete block together and ensuring the structure is stable and well established as a singular unit. Mortar can be applied with a trowel. Different types of mortar are available so it may be wise to seek professional advice on the best mortar to suit the concrete block application.
Concrete blocks are available in non-load bearing and load bearing types.
