Forth picture down was done in 2002 and the last picture shows the same patio but with an extension we did this summer.

As always stellar work, like the use of the natural stone mixed with paver work I been trying to incorporate that in some of our designs this year also. Nice job!

Very nice, really clean. Excellent use of the boulders. Integrating natural stone really elevates the others materials.

Beautiful stuff. In the second pic, dd you build the main step for lack of better words than build the steps on to it on either side, or are the steps tied in? Also what are your thoughts of steps/srw against vinyl siding?

The steps are tied in together on this one. For this job in particular we excavated to the footing, close to 9' deep. We installed 23 tons of 2" clear stone, geo textile @ the 8' mark then added 3/4" granular to just under bottom block. Up against the house we installed platton (sp) right up to the top of the brick. I suppose we could cut the siding and install J-trim, but its a chance you take if there is ever any settling.

Well maybe my work is clean, but equipment is getting tired looking.

oooohhh specs on the trucks? i'm searching everywhere for my next one, I want it to be perfect. Also been shopping mini ex's, and I see you've solved my problem of big for power and reach or small for access and maneuverability, just buy two! If you had to choose one, which would it be?

Nice work. The equipment should look like it was used.

Tough question, but gotta say the kx91 would be my choice, it has a 42" bucket and thumb, I've done complete jobs with it while my asv was at another site. But the 41 goes places that most guys would only bring wheel barrows. Love both of them:)

What paver is used on the landing with the charcoal border... the one that looks like possibly 8x8? Flawless work by the way. Thanks for the pics.

I've been so busy that I almost forgot that I owe a vette but now that my season is about over and I have the time, it's too damn cold to drive it. Maybe the C7 will come in awd. :)

The crafstmanship and design looks very good!
I was never a huge fan of not running a soldier course on patios or walkways, unless it's the bigger pavers/slabs like in one of the pictures.
Zedo, do you design these jobs? Are you apart of any of the installation process?
I see you post on here a lot and have a lot of great things to say, I just never knew if you were just an owner, or more involved in the day to day operations and installations.

Owner, estimator, designer, installer (60 % of the time) quality control 99 % of the time. I'm very passionate about this business and take pride in knowing my customers trust what I do for them. I'm not big on words or promises, I just deliver and the work gets done.

Where are the railing police we always hear from?!?
The 13th pic, why didn't you make the top landing wider for stepping out of the door? It's hard to tell how dee it actually is.

I second the look of not having a border course. I don't think we have ever not done a job without it in some sort and you made it look great. That looks like some tough cuts too.

At 18" they aren't required, there is a vent on the right side of the steps that would of thrown off the balance of the design. Those steps were built 10 yrs ago, today I would of used different materials and likely would of incorporated a stone railing to the left side.

Now I really feel bad about my first hardscape job! :hammerhead: Great work! Just of out curiosity sake how long do those smaller entry way jobs take you and your crew to complete? Again I know everyone's skill levels will vary and equipment will also be different. Just honestly curious and I wouldn't remotely base anything of mine off of that. Man those lines are crisp!!

Four guys in the last three weeks we did five front walkways with those walkways each one included a set of steps and a complete side entrance between two homes.

I really like that first pic alot...have a question about pic 4 (the Holland stone?) Do you have a complete pic of that patio? I know if I started a border course I would feel it had to go around the patio but I see yours doesn't and i want to see how it looks,

These pictures are also from the same home that the driveway pictures were taken. The front walkway was done in 1988 by our company. I remember the lady asking for it on a 45 deg and it was the first time I'd done it.
