    nothing too extensive but i think it came out pretty well. 4 ft X 30 ft. The stone itself could have some more color for bluestone.

    you mean cemented? I like dry construction personaly. Much more natural as well as traditional look, especially in front of an old farm house, dont you think? I considered cutting the edges but left it for the same reason. That part scares me cause there's no putting it back if it ended up looking too formal or contemporary. I could still do it though. Think I should?

    yes on second thought, taking the house into consideration i agree with you.

    Looks nice, good job fitting the stones.
    Only two things: the top step seems to be a little narrow (maybe it's just the pic), and that one joint that runs all the way across the walk at a 90 degree angle about halfway up, my eye just keeps going to it.
    I like the rustic look, it matches the house.

    Those steps look like a real ankle breaker. I do like the walkway though. Do you want grass in the joints?

    Yeah, first thing my eyes went to was the steps. I think you otta go back and re-do them correctly.

    Feel free to correct, but here's what I see. The steps look to be all different rises. Maybe 7", 6" and 9". The little upper guy is not really safe. Take those shrubs out add a little darkness and it's a bad problem. In my experience they wont last long constructed dry like that.
