I was under the impression that you have to start the arbels in the very center of where you're working and work out from there, so there was a lot of time spent carrying pavers up and down the paths. As we moved along, we realized that as long as you keep the pattern, you can start anywhere.

I also brought the plants in a little early and had to be extra careful not to ruin them, causing us to move a little slower.

Anxious for another Arbel job so we can tighten things up even more.
