My first paver install.

The finishing around the patio/walk still needs completed. A gravel bed around hedge, new soil and grass along walk and patio, and a final joint sand on the edges.

Loose the paver slivers in your (radius) soldier course. Make wedges from whole pavers.

After thought, I think I misunderstood what you meant. You meant I should have cut many pie wedges to make the curve instead of filling the gaps! Again, thanks for the input. That would be much more uniform in appearance.

Just curious as to why people use fabric. I have never used it and have had zero problems with sand sifting or any other issues. Maybe it's because we use class 2 road base under our sand. Just curious.

Most times they it is inexpensive insurance for extending the life of the base. It is necessary where there is clay or silts. There was some clay content in this location.
