Do you do all your pool decks with a slab under your pavers? Everytime I bid a flag patio or something with a slab base they just say let's go with a concrete deck than. St. louis is a hard place to sell this type of process.

Do you do all the base and the concrete or does the pool company take care of that? I hear that compaction around a pool is tough because of all the plumbing and voids from the pool. I like the idea of just laying the pavers on the slab.
I am supposed to look at one next week and I have never done a pool deck before.

BTW...It's looks very nice!

I've lurked here for a while, but just want to tell you that you do very, very nice work. The only thing I question is the pink shovel.....

I've been pouring "scratch pads" for clay pavers, flagstone, etc.. for years and have had everyone & their brother ask me what I thought I was doing. Glad to see I'm not the only one who sees the long term benefit, as well as the labor savings in it.

PS, you should look into plastic flexi forms with steel pins to save some forming (& especially stripping) labor.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Ha the pink shovel was at a local distributer and was for breast cancer..it was forma good cause and cute to make the guys use but honestly it turned out to be a really good shovel !

Yes I agree with the labor savings and long term benefits...

We have a lot of plastic forms as well as wooden bend boards...and yes the plastic are easier to clean, last longer, and also bend more..we use the wood more because they seem to be easier to be nailed into...we also have many steel curb pins but we don't use them around the pools because of the pipes for the pool plumbing.

Thanks again for the kind words !

Today Lights went on pillars, waterfalls and deck jets were hooked up, and we constructed some more small walls and a few new walkways, step, etc...

Turbo,
I noticed you used EP Henry Pavers, the project looks awesome! I am an EP HENRY authorized hardscaping contractor. I am curious as to what this project cost for the customer. I see you are in NJ, you guys seem to have all the awesome jobs and high income residential folk! I want to look for clientele who can afford projects on that scale (like your job). How much time did you put into landing this job? Did you do the design work too? How long did this project take, and with how many guys?

Thanks!

thanks....
its actually all Anchor/Belgard product, not EP
as far as cost....not to be rude but..do you ask the guy in the lamborghini or bentley how mutch it costs? i can tell you it was about 1800 sq ft. of flat work, 200 sq ft of wall, and 4 fence/light pillars, so im sure you can do the approx. math
went on one appointment to "land" the job...yes did design work as well..
our projects average 7-14 days with 2-4 guys

heres most recent pics....landscapers are there now to do all clean up work..
