If you would have just done the large half circle in front of the garage it would have looked ok but the smaller half circles look pretty bad, to much going on!

I disagree with the post above. I can see whats going on. One large circle centered on the garage. Then another partial one in the corner with a matching radius. Then a smaller one connecting the two at the walkway. I think if you posted pics from different angles then Scagrider can see what the layout is, maybe one from a distance facing the garage and also one from the walkway beside the garage back a little distance facing towards the drive. The hing I disagree with is the pattern of the field, I have never been too fond of that one but that's just my opinion.

I can see whats going on just fine and I don't like it, he asked what we thought and I told him. The outline looks good, I don't like the pavers they look cheap, not crazy about the pattern, the inlay by the garage door is hideous. I'm far from a hack I've been hardscaping for 16 years, don't let my screen name fool you as I have not touched a mower in years, I just buy them! But I do think it was a cool idea and could have looked good but a few things just make it look odd.

Hack? What the hell did I say? The only thing that was evenly remotely negative was that I said that I'm not fond of that pattern.

Just curious as to what makes the pavers look "cheap"

Looks good! It would look better if the rest of the driveway was concrete but I like it!

It looks really good! Great work.
I mean it's not really my thing, or what I would do at my home, but looks good nonetheless.

My question is, how did you go about meeting up with the driveway?
The driveway doesn't look brand new, so I doubt it was paved to the brick.

Did you cut the driveway to meet the pavers?
If so, that looks so smooth.
