    Here's some of a project we just finished. We did the culvert pipe, grading, pavers, sod, and landscaping. Enjoy.

    That is a beautiful drive way, concrete or paver stones?

    Very sharp! Too bad the street has no real curb or edge.

    Looks great. But just out of curiosity and not being familiar with the soils you have down there is that a stable enough base for that driveway? especially being that its on a hill with a drainage ditch adjacent to it. Wouldnt that sink or settle more in the rains and hurricanes? Im just curious. Looks great tho

    Paver stones are going to move anyways there is no way around the settling issue. As for the weight load its probably never going to see a heavy vehical on it. I hate to see a loaded tandem axle truck back in turning while backing in. You would see those pavers shift around.

    It looks like the soil has a strong clay base in it and in my mind if it hasn't been disturbed too much it should be hard enough. The job looks good paving stones make a nice driveway that doesn't see heavy traffic.

    The yard is missing something its like it needs a tree or a fence or a stone type wall in the front yard.
