Customer has old farmhouse with a concrete walkway that was falling apart near the steps. Wanted paver walk that would look good with the style of the house, and also wanted to incorporate a none-working water pump and wine barrel planter.

The part of the walkway that was damaged turned out to be layed over plywood:confused: I think that might have had something to do with its failure.

Every cut was then beat with a sledge to blend with the rest of the paver, I'm pretty happy with the results, although it took 4 hours longer estimated, total time 16.5 hours.

oh and the driveway is getting top-coated next week, thats why the pavers are 1" above.

Very bold design! Didn't like it at first look, but I think it works. Very creative approach. Anything to make pavers less boring!

boy thats a great compliment, thanks. I used the dublin large square to soften transition from concrete to paver but only ran it on one side because the walk isn't that wide, I also ran it on the side with the bigger landscape bed for similar reason.

small job, no light budget.

Looks good. It can be hard to use pavers with different textures and patterns on such a small area but it works with that project. As a former Rochesterian I certainly don't miss all of the white marble that is used in landscapes around Rochester.

funny thing about the marble chips, thats the first time in seven years that I have used them (unless I did and just supressed that memory, like the ones with red mulch from a few years ago:laugh: )

I went with the white marble chips to tie into the bright white molding on the house and the white of the pump.

I would have preferred to see border on both sides, but the install looks good.

that looks sweet, great design.

i would have also done the border on both sides, but i think it looks really nice the way it is.

thanks guys, yeah I just felt it would be too much border and not enough walkway, that and I tend to stray from the norm.

anyone notice I made cupcakes out of some of the twinky's:rolleyes:

I tried a different technique for cutting and putting the circle in and I was very happy with the results.

- I laid the to-be circle out on the compacted 5/8ths crusher
- drew the circle and scored it with my 7 1/4" circular saw
- removed scored bricks and finished cutting on my tub saw
- reassembled out of way on driveway
- screeded sand and laid pavers on entire walkway
- put circle back in place (but on top of pavers) and traced outline
- reassembled out of way on driveway again
- scored line and cut with tub saw
- laid circle back in its place and fits like a glove.

I did it this way because I wanted the round look, not the lots of straight cuts trying to look like a circle look.

oh and hey SheShovel, no comments on the posterior view!
