Some jobs I've gotten done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You should buy one of our paver mixers or pullers. Nice job on the edging. I do like snap edge.
Try to limit your sand lift to only an inch or so. The toads up here will tunnel through the sand and it will sink. When I do pavers I use 12-4" of class 5 or crushed 3/4"-minus granite if I need a permiable highly drainable base over heavey duty landscape fabric. On top of the base I'll screed about an inch of course sand and use that for final leveling/tuning of pavers.
Also having the paver surface and base against the siding like you do can and will eventually lead to water problems, you need to take the total grade down enough that the pavers will be about 4-6" at a minimum below the siding. Other than all that, it looks good and hopefully your customers will enjoy it for a long time.
I believe I had no more than an inch. My screed poles are 1in. Im pretty sure it wasn't up against the siding, I did this one last summer, I'd have to check. You like that big square hole. I pulled up the pavers took everything out and brought in all knew base and relayed them. Ran out of pavers at the end and the customer was so tight they wouldn't purchase a band so where there hot tub went we pulled them up.
please tell me that the 4" corrugated pipe isn't being used as a down spout?!?!?
