it was my first one. the first contractor screwed it up and never put in a rock subbase, just sand so it would sink and washout a little everytime it rained hard. so we fixed it right. enjoy the pictures

Looks alright!....I personally would have preffered tigher joints. Maybe tap the edges in a bit better cause the first plow that runs over it and theyre gone. Use any poly meric or just straight sand? Nice stones.

polymetric sand

I don't think that's the right block for the application. I think a more uniform paver would fit better with all the linear shapes... ie the concrete sidewalk and curbing. The random nature of the paver you chose makes it seem a little sloppy.

The install isn't bad though... it would look really nice as a patio or walkway with turf bordering it.

Was that stone there already? You just pulled it up and re-layed it?
Looks like you could have turned everything 90 degrees? lined up the soldier course on the outside and run everything else perpendicular to the way they lay??
I would have liked to see what it looked like before. cant really say if it is better or worse.

there is way to much space between the blocks if anything hits one of blocks and catches in those gaps those blocks are not gonna be there ne more. It would look really good as a walkway for a back patio or sumthin like that though

the ultimate goal is to make the customer happy ,but your name is on the project and that does not look good as a driveway apron.that would look good as a walkway ,or a patio surounded by grass.im not trying to be a jerk either because i have had customers want me to do some god awful stuff before and i pass on it because my craftmanship is on it and i dont like doing subpar stuff.goodluck with the next one .
