Loc: port orange fl.
rock garden bed 32 ft. by 4 ft. Can I pour a concrete and sand mix on top of existing stones to make a flat surface matching existing concrete patio deck next to it. It will not be a load bearing surface. Will be used mainly to direct rain water away from house and patio and to eliminate weed problem
no idea what you are talking about

If the concrete patio behind your house is plain or boring, and you want to replace it with flagstone or some other stone, you don't necessarily need to remove the old concrete. The process of laying a stone patio involves a base layer of cement anyway, and you've already got that in place. If the patio is in good structural shape, there's no reason you can't lay right over it with the stone, by just adding a little extra cement.
