Poured the hearth yesterday , so went to the brick store today to gather materials to get started . While I was there , I noticed a small pile of "splits " sitting all by themselves . when I asked about them the guy told me they did not want to carry them anymore so that pile was just kind of left over . I said that I would give him a quarter a piece for them and before I knew it they were in my truck . So I am thinking they would be good to add some mass with the full bricks on the hearth . Should they go above or below the full bricks? I would guess that either way , they should be laid in a different pattern , yes? Also I started spraying down the hearth today with water to help with the cure and notice that the water flows right through , not standing on top at all . Is that the way it should be ? Thanks for all the input.

On top or underneath?
