I graduated last year from college with associates degrees in construction management and business management. I have worked for the family company for 13 years. Currently I am a job foreman and the head equipment operator for the company. I do all the prep work for all the jobs, meaning for pavers, I do everything up to putting in the beading sand and for walls, everything up to laying base row. Also I do almost all of the granite work. Then my father and his crew comes in and completes the project and I move on to prep the next job. However on our large projects we work together to get the job done quicker. I am also ICPI, NCMA and PICP certified and have a CDL license. Don't be afraid to to ask questions or comment on our projects. I will try to answer them the best I can but I don't know everything! haha
Keep it coming. I really enjoy your pics and think you have a unique equipment selection. I am trying to refurbish an A300 right now. They are just incredible machines. To me they have less of a footprint than a tracked machine. I would have really liked to find an A220, but there is NOTHING used for sale in that particular model.

No worries, you have your opinion and that's fine. I can assure you there is edge restraint on each and every job. We wouldn't be in business for 30 years if we didn't. Its usually just covered by mulch or loam on the side. We don't use geo-textile under walks or patios unless there is clay or loam present after excavation. We have very sandy, gravely soil here. We also compact the ground at the bottom of the excavation before the base goes in. What pictures are you referring to about bond lines? Again i appreciate your comments and opinions even though i don't always agree with them.

I think everything looks good. I personally don't like all the granite, but you explained why you use it. Nice equipment too!

One in particular would be the small walkway that adjoins the circle patio, the permeable one where there is no border, the last one that is curved just needs to be smoother, gotta stand back and look at your work, couple more, but don't want to make an issue of it. Long as you and your customers are happy.
