The area there is a poured pad and it extends out to far to have the patio against te brick. So we've decided to just put landscape stone there and the patio about 8-10 inches from it. Again the pain is having to have the patio meet the 48" railing. Throwing everything off.

No, if you look closely you can see a wall cap near the deck. Thats the height of the patio so that the pool railings are 48" from it for pool code. Should have just had him redo the railing.

We've decided just to build a garden wall around it filled with stones. Boring, yes, but solves that issue.

So I took off my little kid high tops and put on my man boots and got to work. Feeling better although there is still plenty left to do. At least the base is starting to go in. Rented compactor bit the dust so that halted things. Fun times. Any tips on getting the base to compct level? You dont have to share you most kept trade secrets, just looking for help. I have the string lines down so I could compact.

6" give or take. I know the laser is best. Don't really have $600-$1000+ to spend on that. It does make it easy though!!
