    I thought I would post some pics of the first paver patio I did. I finished it last fall. Before, almost done, and finished. Go easy on me. Followed all the specs I could find.

    It looks very good!. That was a smart idea to incorporate a natural drain between the lawn and patio. I give you the thumbs up!

    Thanks, ChampianLS. The patio is holding up great. I'm totally converted to pavers. I don't think I'll pour cement again. I'm working on the little sidewalk you see in the photo now sort of by the grill area. I've had to raise the walk up and create a small step down into the patio from the walk with drainage from the walk flowing away from the patio and into the bush.

    Looks good to me, only thing I may of done differently is run the lines in the opposite direction.
