    Just realized I never posted these in here.

    After. Waiting for RCA to settle so I can have my paving sub hit it
    She insisted on the double border against the driveway. Not my personal choice but I give the customer what they want. Should be phenomenal after she plants it all out. The back yard is immaculate, the front all died when it got flooded during hurricane sandy. Plus it's in the front so getting after pics for DVS is super easy ;)

    No edge restraint on the driveway side?

    Who needs edge restraint when ya got play sand. Did I say that out loud just now..... Sorry... Due to the unfreezeing process I have no inner monologue.

    It's mortared down on a concrete footing. You guys put plastic edging in and pave over it?

    No, the asphalt company will lift the edge restraint and pave up to the pavers.

    The mortar is susceptible to freeze thaw damage

    Yeah thats what we have done. Just pave over the edge restraint. The gravel base is continious from the pavers to the asphalt.

    I dont like mortaring down pavers that only have sand in the joints. If you mortared the joints that is a diferent story. The sand allows water to freeze between the paver and blow things apart

    Ok. When doing blacktop with cobblestone borders do you hold them in with edge restraint or mortar joint/portland footing?
