    Hello all, I'm needing a little bit of info I'm working up a price on installing a Dublin Cobble Circle Kit in a driveway we have done the walkway in Dublin Cobble Mod. My trouble is we have never done a circle before so I have no idea how much more time it would take to do? Does anyone have an idea how much more time would you add in on the price or a rule of thumb that I may use thanks

    depends on the size, an 8 footer may take about an hour to lay and 1/2 to cut in. not a huge factor, being your first time get a instalation guide from your distrubter and throw it away. Just kidding but we found it not to always work, have to try other sizes/shapes and use what works best. good luck

    Any thing that we need to watch out for on these things? Will we need to do any cutting on it etc the size of the circle is 9'-5" the area we will be laying it is 12' x 19'

    Yikes! Those are some serious gaps in the outer course. Are those part of the kit, or just added to make the circle larger? :confused:

    I charge $300 additional for a circle under 9.5 feet diameter.
    With Belgard, you have to buy 96 sf of circle, but only use
    75 sf or so. Right there is $72.00 of waste. Then the cuts around
    the circumference. Then it is slower to lay then the three-piece.

    One tip:

    Lay the circle first, all but the last course. Lay your field as close
    to the circle as possible. Now lay out your last circle course.
    Mark your cuts using the backs of the pavers as a guide. You'll
    have perfect cuts in quick order.
