Looks good as always. How did the paver driveway come out? I would love to see some progress pics from that job also. I always enjoy looking at your work.

Great job. Dave...

Thanks Dave. I'd like to get some pictures too but its been raining all three times I was in that direction. I do have to go that way before Christmas and hope to get some shots. It turned out really well and we'll be doing walkways in the spring. A little backwards...

Next year I'll be getting jobs photographed. I'm just now in business long enough to get the better caliber jobs worth taking pictures of, from a marketing point of view. Plus, I want plants to fill in and look nicer.

Lots of walks are always set on a 90 off the house, so I set this one on a 45. Less formal.

The border is granite thin stone that is bought in bulk. The picture on the previous page shows them cutting it on one of 3 rain days we've had on this project. All were cut to 6" widths and left at random lengths. Again, less formal. This isn't finished and its my favorite of any walkway we've done. We did the patio in the backyard here too. The cool thing about these customers is they are one of a few I have that give me a few ideas of what they want and then let me run with it. I get so tired of laying flagstone and fieldstone walls when there are so many other stone products, combinations and patterns to work with. Flagstone etc has its place but it gets boring sometimes if its always the same thing over and over. At least get creative with it.

That's why I love waterfalls! Never the same but I get tired of them also. At least you get to do natural stone builds around here that is hardly paid for.

Ongoing pond construction and wall. Loved it when I cut through my water line last night.
