Surely you remember these photos from when they were first taken. These test blocks are 1 part 3/4 minus, 1 part crusher fines 1 part sand and anywhere from 6 to 1 part lime.
Not to be confused with a proper scientific test or anything, but you can see that those blocks with high lime content didn't do so well when left in the elements.
Not to honk my own horn (Heaven forbid!) but you can see that our mix of 1-1-1 stood up pretty well to the last few months of freeze/thaw and occasional rain.
But will it stand for another 500 years?
