    The crafstmanship and design looks very good!
    I was never a huge fan of not running a soldier course on patios or walkways, unless it's the bigger pavers/slabs like in one of the pictures.
    Zedo, do you design these jobs? Are you apart of any of the installation process?
    I see you post on here a lot and have a lot of great things to say, I just never knew if you were just an owner, or more involved in the day to day operations and installations.

    Owner, estimator, designer, installer (60 % of the time) quality control 99 % of the time. I'm very passionate about this business and take pride in knowing my customers trust what I do for them. I'm not big on words or promises, I just deliver and the work gets done.

    Where are the railing police we always hear from?!?
    The 13th pic, why didn't you make the top landing wider for stepping out of the door? It's hard to tell how dee it actually is.

    I second the look of not having a border course. I don't think we have ever not done a job without it in some sort and you made it look great. That looks like some tough cuts too.

    At 18" they aren't required, there is a vent on the right side of the steps that would of thrown off the balance of the design. Those steps were built 10 yrs ago, today I would of used different materials and likely would of incorporated a stone railing to the left side.

    Now I really feel bad about my first hardscape job! :hammerhead: Great work! Just of out curiosity sake how long do those smaller entry way jobs take you and your crew to complete? Again I know everyone's skill levels will vary and equipment will also be different. Just honestly curious and I wouldn't remotely base anything of mine off of that. Man those lines are crisp!!

    Four guys in the last three weeks we did five front walkways with those walkways each one included a set of steps and a complete side entrance between two homes.
