All thats left now is to add sand to fill some cracks. What do you guys think.
I feel so stupid that I dont have pics of the drainage. Next time I will be sure to get them. I have more pics of the job if your interested in seeing the progress by day.

Looks very good. How long did it take you/ start to finish? How many workers did you have?

It took about 65 hours. We used 4 guys for the demo (mind you that some areas were 12 in thick concrete w/ 1/4in rebar...that patio was built to last). Me and my partner installed.

We leveled everything to be an even 7" down. Put 2" of the stone shown in these pics and 2" of stone dust. Pavers were 3".
