It would of been an improvement for sure. This was my first time using the pillar system on a job this size and wasn't sure how different it would of looked by interchanging the pieces. But when we were done the first set of pillars we discussed this option but was to late to change the next set of pillars fearing the difference would of been obvious. Next time we use pillars they will be either natural stone or a different wall block all together.
Good observation.

There is nothing wrong with using pillar kits. You just need to interchange the blocks when neccessary. What sucks for us guys in the US, the techo pillars are made up north and the color is off a tad.

Know a problem with big jobs where you're there for an extended period of time?

You encounter the mrs when that cycle hits. That's when things can get ugly.

Andrew, your brain is always in motion isn't it! We had no problems on this project at all, if the mrs was in a bad mood, she was likely not home but at the cottage.

Very nice. I like the boulders in there. The before picture really shows how blank slate it was.

Man, that's some awesome work! There are people like me who do hardscapes. Then there are people like you and DVS who REALLY do hardscapes. This job is absolutely beautiful. I don't think our current designer could even design something that cool! Well done!

You know what has really helped me over the years besides being picky as hell, its been dynascape software. I can create most anything I want and it really helps when the owner gives you "carte blanche" on the project too! Thanks for the comments.
