    This was a very interesting and challenging project that we finally completed today. The pavers are Techo Bloc "Hera" laid in an "I" pattern. We laid the pavers upside down (so the undulated side faced down). The foul line and 3 point line were made out of Techo's Atlantis. I will post some more pics and "under construction" photos when I have time.

    We hung the net after I took the picture and I jammed on it like the fat guy I am, needless to say, the dunk was impressive.

    I normally would not post to my own thread but this picture is pretty bad quality now that I look at. I will wet the pavers down or hope for some sun and get another tomorrow.

    Dan, I don't think you need to wet it down. Maybe, it's just not that interesting. I mean, it's a basketball court. There's only one hardscape application there and it's the easiest one, flat work.

    Anybody with, I don't know, a month of hardscaping experience and the ability to see color could successfully install that project.:)

    Easy now....... dang a lil harsh on a man huh......


    I think it looks bad a$$ myself shoot i made my wife get up and come and look at it. I think it took a lot of creativity to do that and definatly alot of time making all of those cuts like that. Sure its a basketball court and yeah so whats so interesting about it.............its out of the FREAKIN BOX thats what so cool about it you dont see them like that everyday, most of the time its a slab with some paint slapped on it, not a decorative, attractive paver setting with different colors involoved. Man i give ya a thumbs on that one.:dancing: :clapping: great work man its sure looks good to me and was definatlly different. How do you think it would look if you clear coated them of used a sealer on the? do you think it would make the color stand out more w/o making it too slick?\


    Great work.

    It has been a very long day/night for me and to read this made my day, thanks Mike. I was actually somewhat proud of this project until you completely pulled my pants down in front of everyone. I liked you better when everything you typed was g@y.

    This is all you could think of? I was expecting some photos of courts you have done in the past, you must be getting old.

    Thanks Deer Icon Man! I think a good pressure washing or scrubbing will make the pavers look just fine. I am not a huge fan of the sealer in pedestrian areas, it makes the surface too slick. Thanks for the compliments!

    Dan, that is very cool and I'm sure the homeowner, their children and the neighborhood will enjoy it. The lines are clean and crisp and it looks like it will be a lot of fun.
