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.
i suggested pavers, but my mom wants the tile!
thanks for the advice! its appreciated

I like it for the different approach to a front of the house. I hear you on the whole making the customer happy. I post some pics on here awhile back and everyone didn't like it and I understood thier point but it is about making the customer happy, especially mom, lol, have fun with the new design and can't wait to see the before and after pics on that one. Are you going to be able to use the new skidsteer on the new project?

It's all about good placement down here. We have laid as many as 60 pallets of sod on a job without a skid....just have to hope you get the placement right on that many...if the 10th is off you are screwed the rest of the day.
