I like it because it is unique. Nice contrast between the soldier course and the run. More importantly, is the customer happy. Its certainly a conversation piece.

Well I'm more concerned on what type of base was used? how thick? also what about the edge restrain it looks like it was installed on top of the sand, also next time try to finish all the sides with a bigger piece try to avoid those little pieces they will usually move overtime.

Gee, thanks for the comments. "blushing" Here is an example of what I mean. When transitioning from one large area (patio) to a walkway, try to be creative and at the same time you save a bundle of time and material. No cutting cornners on design DVS, just logical to me.

Andy, the pic you posted is very impressive.

But, ok, how do I word this. Ok, in the pic you have an arbel circle at the end of the walk, which is what is transitioning the walk into the patio. Yet prior to the circle, the walk is set in a running bond pattern.

Your original comment regarded "cutting" and "saving time", it never mentioned "transitioning"

Other than you have a circle at the end, how is that running bond pattern any different than the angled pattern in the Jake's photo? Honestly, I believe Jake's workmanship in the cutting and mitering of the pavers in his walkway is outstanding. I know it took a while to do, but look at the end result!

No disrespect, and maybe I'm not understand what you're saying, Andy, or maybe you're not understanding what I'm saying, from an architectural standpoint I'm not seeing how your random pattern consists of any more logic than Jake's pattern. The circle is a nice touch. However from a drop-click-and-go mentality - then sure I understand ya. But from a mentality of "what can we do to make this really stand out" mentality - I'm not following ya.

One of the great things about paver work is that you can be as creative as you can dream. And with creativity - usually comes cutting and mitering pavers.

Ok maybe transitioning isn't the right word here but his work could of been done faster, with less material waste and look nicer imo, if he would of curved the brick to follow the walkway. It looks so cold with the lines running straight. My only reason to comment at all, is to help this guy who obviously takes great pride in his workmanship is to give some sugestions as to how it could be done and how it could look. Maybe my pics don't really tell the story but just wanted to show him how smooth the walk looks without all those cuts.

I think this is what Andy and I were getting at. Drawing is rough but you get the idea. I think it helps the flow of the path.

Thats what I needed! Makes sense now to see it drawn out, i do agree it would help with the flow doing a running bond and getting rid of the soldier row infront of the walk as well as eliminate a lot of cuts. Hey, something to try next time! Thanks for the visual.

No worries man, I'm a visual learner myself so I thought I'd try to remove all the grey areas with everyone trying to explain what to do.
