Wall first then brick around it. With a bit of planning it should line up perfectly.

Wall(s), fire feature, steps, grill, first. Pavers last.

yea but why? when I did the fire pit I put that first. it made sense, the pit needs to drain, has a fire it it, etc. I'm not stubborn to reason, just wondering what the reasoning is to doing the wall first? they're strictly ornamental

1) By installing first the pavers will hold the block in plave and will keep the wall, steps, fire feature, grill, etc from sliding.

2). I take some of what I said back. Lord, I need a vacation! What am I thinking?

We do install our grills and fire features last. This way we maintain straight, uninterupted joint lines with the pavers.

I need to explain further -

So anything that goes in the paver field will go in last. Like I said - to maintain straight joint lines.

But we don't install over the pavers. We'll actually take the pavers up (where the feature is going), install the feature on the gravel base, and then cut the pavers to fit around the feature.
