    It's done, I did it in 5 days, with some help on 2 of the days. First install, learned a lot, if I did it again I would change some minor things, but other than that I'm very happy.

    So, heres a bunch of pics...first one is last year before I built my garage this summer...the rest are pretty self expanitory...

    any comments welcome..

    ok, I've got a lot more, but you've all seen a lot of pavers, so that'll do.
    thanks for your input. Jon

    ya I have some tree issues for sure!

    trying to figure out what to do with them, I hate to cut down mature trees, but when they look like crap what else can ya do. I have to re- roof the house this summer, and then it's landscape time...finally! Now what to do with the trees????
