I'd like to get into paver installation but have little experience. Ive done a small patio, and a some simple walkways in my own yards in the past but nothing on the professional level.

Ive been surfing the web, looking at as many before/during/after photos, picked up a couple magz from a colleague, and will probably grab a book or two from the local hardware store.

What other advise can you give a newbie looking to get into this market? Besides the basic shovel/level/mallet what tools would you recommend and or specific to this kind of work.

have you considered working for a hardscape contractor for a summer? there is alot of detail in finishing work to professional standards and that comes from expirience.

my neighbor does hardscaping in addition to landscape/lawncare. I just talked to him the other night about going out with them on their next job or two.
