    The stone is very cool, and looks great around the house/pool area. But looks a little busy to me on the hill. Not sure if its becuase my eye sees the natural stone which has less lines or not.

    Otherwise very cool looking.

    thanks for the pics

    Nope, he wanted to keep the natural bedrock exposed.

    I kind of agree. I would like to have covered up the exposed bedrock with another bottom tear of slabs to stay more consistent with the slab look. Yet as we all know, the customer is always right.
    It took me a little over a month just to do all of the stone work on his property.

    I like it!
    I think your varied symmetry looks better than a running pattern. Good looking installs!
