It's been a while since I've posted any pictures, but feel free to let me know what you think. Most of the pictures are from jobs this year.

I'm no expert, with that said, man that looks awesome. What a difference in appearance. Love the dry stack look! Great Job! You should be very proud of it.

I really like the work you did. The flow of the patio lines look really good. I noticed the angle cut where the caps came together on the step/planter. Keep it up.

Obvious signs of "cutting in place". We recently did a job where I "cut in place" its one of the few times I did it and overall I'm happy with it but imo it still doesn't beat cutting one by one. Definite time saver though!

I always score the cuts in place. We then take them to the table saw and finish the cut. On the larger slab pavers, we'll cut them in place typically.

I'll get this out of the way first. The work looks nice.

2 things I noticed since you asked.

The first is the block right up against the fire ring. Although better than nothing, it would be even better to place a gap between the ring and block and fill with loose gravel. The air in the gravel voids tends to help insulate and keep the block cooler thereby last longer before cracking.

The other is the one with a raised patio with separated seat wall and topsoil over the gravel. Your planter and client will thank you if you dig out a little in the center before covering with topsoil. There are few experiences more miserable than having to remove the soil and then pick out the base in order to fit a decent plant selection.

nice work man! where did you find those oval shaped pavers in the first job? Do you have a finished job picture of the first one?

alex - the cobble shaped pavers are techo bloc antiqua. The job is finished, but I don't have finished pics yet. I'll post a couple more progress pics for you. We had a crane install the bar after the patio was laid.

shovelracer - Good point on the firepit. The firepits we usually buy come as a kit where the steel ring matches the radius of the tapered wall blocks so the is minimal cutting and quick to install. We went a little overboard on extending our base out from the edge of the patio. We have about 16" of base because of the slope of the yard.

It looks like curbing that was cut on one side (top side by higher level).

Not a fan hazard or not.

What pavers are in the last pic?

Are you going to put a coping on the walls??

Also I iave seen those "Ramp" pavers before, terrible idea.

Those "little ramps" kinda look like Techo-Bloc's border stone "Tundra".

Yes this would be the intended use. http://www.techo-bloc.com/homeowners/displayImage.php?imageId=9303

Looks Amazing, I wish I could say the same about the company who did a paver patio at my parents house a few years ago. I plan on getting into hardscaping in the 2013 season.
