    You can clearly see where you changed the lines and angles in the last picture of you walk way. Looks outta place and off. Does not match up at all. Unless it's the pic, I could be wrong but it doesn't line up at all.

    Thats the point. Stop one section of pattern. Start another. Lines up perpendicular to the porch and parallel to the majority of the walkway

    It's just not my look to be honest but maybe looks good in person or after seen the whole landscape but in those pictures it just doesn't flow very well

    Ya, looks well done except for the change of pattern. Did you do it for yourself or a customer.

    Me? For a customer. My patio is broken concrete haha. They we're happy with it and i ran it past them before hand. Obviously there are 3 or 4 good ways and a million other ways to do every project. Just offering up another option to the OP.
    i like it this way because it avoids all the little cuts along the walk if i started at the house. And if i started at the walk it would have looked twisted where it met the porch like people we're complaining about in the OPs walkway

    It will be a cold day in hell before I did something like that pattern, it looks terrible IMO.

    And I know you are a top quality guy alldayjr just could never do a pattern like that.

    That transition is just ughhhh

    I just visit here, but in the first picture when looking at the three steps the patio should have been a little wider to the right. Maybe to the point where there are pavers on both sides of the steps?

    Hey I'm not taking it personal. Its customer preference. I hate nicolocks and i hate working with 3 different bricks on such a small project. I still have 3/4 of a pallet of those damn pink 6x6s sitting in my yard.
    So you guys all would have ran the pattern with a ton of cuts down the walkway?
