    Patio doesn't look bad, looks like the wall has the problems. LOL.

    the patio has quite a bit of age to it.

    So, if a contractor did the work - then shame on them.

    But if it was a home owner that did the work - Then maybe they didn't do all that bad.

    whats the problem?

    That overhang is awesome and one of a kind. Just throw some mulch down and move on!

    at least it would be very cost affective.

    It is a little over a year old. Installed by a local contractor. Who might be getting sued out of business. It is built over a spring w/ no drainage!

    Anybody that does work like that should be sued, should be out of business, and should be put in jail. Community service maybe.

    I would sentence him to have to work (for free) underneath the contractor who fixes it. Sued and put out of business!!
