    I'm putting in a patio in my own backyard, this is not a for profit job. The patio is 20 x 20 and is ready for the pavers. The pavers I am using are OTC
    6x9 and was wondering what type of patterns would be avail., and also where do you start laying the pattern. I know this is a juvenile problem for experienced installers, but my experience is limited, and could use some direction. If this helps, I have access to all the 6x9 pavers I need, so the pattern that would fit me best would consist of all 6x9's. Any help would be much appreaciated.

    Lay a 90 degree herringbone with the 6X9's
    Start in the center of the area and lay outward
    then fill in the sides. It will look like a pyramid.
    This will help keep your bond lines straighter.
    It will also allow you to float the edges may allow to
    avoid some cuts.

    Peace,

    Thanks Rexman, thats the pattern I started, working out well although I started on the corner and not the center and I now know what you mean about the cuts. Thats a impressive website you have there also.
