In the first patio, is that a pattern or is it just random?

Awesome question and I don't know my employee did that patio I only layed the base and then came back to take pictures aha. It was an extension of patio stones bordering the drive way. So they're a different color and size. It looks like he tried to keep somewhat of a pattern, but it's different then the driveways pattern.

Thanks for the response. I always see patios that don't look like they have no pattern and I've always wondered what the trick is to them. I'm a high school kid who loves doing yard maintaince but would really love to learn more about the landscaping side. I'm a curious kid and love to learn about anything landscaping so I think I will have no problem learning the landscaping side.

Mostly lawn maintenance throughout the year, snow removal is a huge part of my winter. And come spring we do a good amount of small landscape installs, patios, rock walls, sod etc. I have about 3 days of cutting and most of my accounts are full maintenance so there's always work weeding, pruning, cleaning leaves etc

Maintenance is winding down. This week is the last week for leaves and so forth and early next week will be last the cuts. The comes winterizing everything and pulling out the snow equipment.

We've had a really good run, but the Tacoma is back up for sale. Our snow work has expanded and we need another truck, so the Tacoma just doesn't cut it. I'm excited to buy my first real work truck. I had a deposit down on this 2001 7.3 w/ 95000 kms but the plow was a little rough after some more consideration so I backed out of that. I'm gonna stick with our low maintenance plan and get something newer and a new plow. So going to check out this GMC today.
