i know its not true hardscape work. I put slate like porcelain tile down over an existing concrete walkway and landing. its not finished yet(weather delays right now) Customer is my mom, she wanted them spaced out and grouted. it was an interesting project and im actually lookin forward to trying this at my house,(with out the spacing)

It looks good! Seems like it would be very slippery if it gets wet.

You got lucky they fit exactly with no cuts! Looks good. They don't do that kinda stuff up here. Probably because we get snow and more importantly we put down salt. I like to see something different like that.

I have a house like that for snow removal. Those things are so slippery. My other crew had been doing this house all of december (7) times. well in jan. i went there and forgot about it and just about fell on my azz. i went sliooing and sliding all the way to the front door.
