Unilock Brussels and Copthorne

I have a customer that has pretty much looked at every stone on the market... He has decided on Unilock Brussels with Copthorne inlays and accenting. I'm all for it, but noticed they are different heights. We have done different height installs before, but not with this much material. What methods are you guys using to speed up the process? Hand install, scrape and re-screed, over screed, or am I missing something and they offer it in same heights other places? Thanks

I would try to talk him into using Town Hall, it's the same thickness as Brussels and looks just like copthorne but bigger, I actually think it looks better also. If they have to have copthorne install a double soldier course with Brussels on the inside and outside, install the outside first and then make a screed tool out of a scrap 2/4" that drops between the outside soldier and the field pavers. I've done this before and it saves tons of time. As for the inlays it depends on the shape but you may be able to use the same method if they are square.

That is exactly how we handled it.

We have been trying to use Town Hall instead.
It does save time.

If its just the perimeter then not a big deal, if its like shown above, then beast's idea is great.

It is an inner border than some inlay banding. Today though they want to use Il Campo instead of Copthorne. Issues with polysand? Likely Coffee Creek field with Harvest Brown accenting. Sorry, Unilock just came to the area never had a chance to use it, I'm a Techo guy myself.

Yes the poly will sit on top of IL Campo and it will look faded, I just use a shop vac and clean each paver indivually after the patio is blown off.
