    I'm trying to be better about taking more pics this year so here's an irregular bluestone walkway w/ bluestone stairs and a natural granite retaining wall. Enjoy
    P.S. Most plantings were done by the homeowner, some bigger trees we did

    Thanks guys
    Yes, the client wanted all the joints within a quarter inch so we were asked to cut everything. The only thing they wanted to be left loose were the edges of the walk. They did not want them cut to be perfect curves, rather left a little rough and more natural... in and out. I don't always like the cut joints but these came out okay. I prefer typically to hammer the edges a bit so the stone doesn't look as sharp but everything has a price that not all people are willing to pay for. I'm still happy with the end result. :D

    Nice work, Marc.

    Can always tell when the homeowner does the plantings :rolleyes:
