    Just pointing out the details. All those little things add up to the over-all appearance.

    It is in your best interest to inform the client of what will look better. Just because you are 15 doesn't mean you can let your clients push you around. If the HO wants the project to look like a homeowner did it then let them do it. It's your reputation that you are trying to create.

    Sink the bricks deeper and at least get them to ground level so that when someone mows they can put the wheel of the mower on them and minimize trimming.

    I'd still also set them in mortar so they don't ever move.

    I will do this tomorrow, post a pic of the changes, and then let me know what you think.

    Thanks.

    Is this better? I am still in the process of leveling the ground in front so they don't look like they are different heights. I sunk them down more and set them in mortar also.

    Thanks

    Yes, looks much better.

    Might be able to drop the pavers a shade bit more next time, but all in all it looks more professional. Thumbs Up

    Good to here that. And the ground is not very level in front so I will level it and then it will look better I think.
    Thanks

    @White Gardens,
    when you say sit the bricks in mortar, what do you exactly mean? Like put mortar in your trench or what?
