I think the walkway would look nice as a complete arch.

I would have liked it to be blended into the driveway instead of that extra part on the end. Just my $.02.

Other than that, craftsmanship is GREAT as always. Keep it up!

This may sound familiar to some but:

I go both ways with that question.

#1 I feel going to a point = weak.

#2 They gain just the right amount of space when getting out of a car not to step in teh grass as they typically step right on the edge.

What I will be pushing them to do is a landscape installation. We are already talking about a staircase w/ boulders down the side of the house and hopefully can put everything into one project. I would either bring the bed edge off of that corner or do something with a planting.

Your walkway makes the stoop look great.

Complete wet job I assume from the looks of it.

You're work is A++

Yes it is wet lay.

Its flagstone.......also known as blue stone.

It will look better after an acid wash. The joints are moist, reason being that they look bigger then they are.

What does an acid wash do? What do you use as the acid?

Thanks.

How do you like your dump trailer. I'm looking for something to move a bobcat and that around but figured a dump trailer would be a little bit handier.
