looks great, can you guys get Dwarf Exora to grow in your area? I think those would look good with some Croton and red mulch! I can't wait to see the next install!

In lieu of porcelain tile have you considered getting the 12" square pavers? Hear me out on this.....if you take one row and lay it normal then take the next row and cut a block in half and use that at the beginning and then start it actually gives a really nice tile effect....you could use that and if you wanted to raise up the walkway get some of the square wall blocks(not tapered like the ones you have) and they will give you a nice cracked face on the outside and then in the inside of it you can just fill it with stonedust and set the pavers. My dad did one like this recently off of a patio that was outdoor tile, and it blended right in. I thought the squares always looked cheesy until I saw this. Just an idea for you, take it if you want, if not maybe you will have another job to use it in.
