This is a front walk, cutting Devonstone makes the edge chip and and you can see aggregate. I decided to try this design and I, and the customer really like it. It is patented, so if you try and use this design on one of your jobs at least me give some credit.

Last one, here is the stoop we veneered and steps we built. Materials? EP coventry wall, Versa-Lok and Cov steps, with Techo-Blocks 14" antique step treads. Sorry to hi-jack your thread John, the whole point was to b*tch about Devonstone and show you how we handled our step treads.

Yeah, we are still there. I have two really good customers and one great in there, mix in a few walkways, trees, belgik edging, sodding, lighting, and you have literally 1 year in the same place. We have done other sites, but not nearly as much as we have been here.

I have been in the one devlopment since may and think i will be there until next fall. I am in the middle of two big fronts and picked up some other smaller work. Then these two big fronts are getting HUGE backyards next year that will occupy me for 6 months.

I am designing another one right now that is all stonework that could carry me right throw the winter. And to think that are 5 other toll devlopments going up right now in my area.

I saw this posting you did in 2007. I have an install of Devonstone from 2006....apparently it was one of the first. Client has had many problems and it looks terrible. Sand joints are huge and problematic. Can you help me understand what problems you had and did the company do anything with the product?
