    Did this one at my in-laws for some experience. Hard to tell but there is an outdoor kitchen and a water feature on it.

    Looks great, good job!
    It would be nice to see the water feature filled and in action.

    Yep. My first. But the crew I had install it has a lot of construction experience. Not so much in this field but experience none the less.

    Ditto.

    I guess by "his first" he meant his first time watching "his crew" do it.

    You aren't putting something like that together on your own with no experience.

    Actually they had no experience with concrete pavers or wall systems. However, my foreman has been in construction for 50 years so he has been around the block a time or two. I was on the jobsite for a couple hours per day for the month it took to create this. We all learned a thing or two from the process.
