[QUOTE=DVS Hardscaper;4893490]I see alotta "SLIVERS" around the perimeter of the patio. With a modular paver there is no reason to have SLIVERS.

Perhaps you can return to the job and pull the SLIVERS out?

I'm not really feeling the steps /QUOTE

The job is at my house so I can definitely return to it! I don't like the slivers either, but they were necessary because the patio is actually raised, so I had a fixed endpoint. That was one of the lessons for next time, to figure out where the lines will be coming out too, and plan the size of the patio accordingly. Still not sure how I could have done that before actually laying them, but had I know the line measurements I could have eliminated slivers. Or I could have messed with the caps but that probably would have created more problems beforehand. Bottom line lesson: As much as possible, know how very detail is going to work out before. The steps are rather uninteresting, any suggestions?

Steps are where a lot of designers "hardscapers" fail. That lower step near the house needs to be much deeper. Trust me on that one. The lower step at grade of the lawn almost looks like its not required. But its ok.
