Front entrance problems
 
5 Attachment(s)

My home's front entrance consists of several big stones.
There are some gaps betweens the big stones.
Please suggest solutions to the problems.
The gap as shown in the attached files 1 and 2 is between concrete and stone, should I cover the gap with concrete?
The gaps as shown in the attached files 3, 4 and 5 are between adjacent stones. I had moved the stones last year horizontally so that there are no gaps. However, the gap reappear this year.
Another problem is that the stones are not even vertically. I had moved the stones last year and leveled the small stones underneath, then moved the stones back. However, the stones become uneven vertically again this year.
