This is a job we did a few months ago. Country manor wall with a seat installed in to it and a 4 piece mega bergerac patio.

Very nice - the customer should be happy. . . The patio looks great too.

How long did that take you?

Nice work, I really like that wall with a seat idea, dual functionality.

Thanks, I couldn't find an example of a seat in the wall, so I winged it.

Right side of the patio doesn't flow that nice, and your cutting could use some improvement. Why didn't you use any large square in the pattern, I think mega bergerac looks so much nicer laid in a random pattern. I think your cutting would improve some if it were done that way. I say that because it looks like there are some large gaps on the left side of the walk way near the patio and because of the runner bond pattern you just ended it there without any cuts. Seat wall and retaining wall look good.

They don't make a large square for the 40mm, or at least down here they don't. We had to do that pattern because we had to match what someone else did around the pool. And as far as the cuts, there is always room to improve.

Looks good. The only problem you may possibly have down the road is settling where the wall branches off of the sitting wall. It is very hard to get proper compaction of base materials when you branch walls off and meet again as you did. There is nothing you can do differently, it is just how it happens that i have seen.

Did you mean 80mm?

We use the MB 14X14 to cap our country
manor walls.

Random is the way to go, that's why it is
a modular system.

Looks good.

Peace,

Rex

come to think of it, i believe at one point they discontinued the large square. They said that because of their size, they were getting broken in the tumbler. is that still the case, or did they find a way to tumble them?

Down here they are going to stop making a 40mm anything tumbled, they are breaking to many in the process. And as far as wall settling, I told the home owner that it might be an issue down the road.

Mega Bergerac is 80mm, they are now less tumbled than they once were, I know that compacting them is not a problem so I can't imagine why tumbling them would be.

It wasn't the mega just the bergerac in a 60mm, and we use sheets of plywood to lay over the pavers when we compact, so that none of them break. And by the way all of these materials come from different plants in the US, mine come from Big Rock in kingston TN.
