Yah, well... There was a limit to their budget. What you don't see there is we also installed an 8 zone irrigation system on the property. So alltogher the guy was already dropping over $15,000 just on the flagstone, drainage, steps, and irrigation. I think that's about the limit on what he could afford to spend this year.

Looks good - he should have sprung for some steps off the patio to the house.

Yes. Well not that brand (Gator Dust). But a very similar product called EnviroStone. It's great. Polymeric crushed stabilized stone. Killer product. That's all we use anymore. I've done a good dozen or so of these patios and walkways this year and we use it every time. I love it. It makes it so easy.
