    ok so i figured ill also do a progress thread of a patio where currently constructing. this patio is around 900 sq. ft. with two levels 6 pillars, fire pit, out cove for a grill, sitting walls around the whole patio, a water fall built to flow through the patio and a bunch of other things. where also installing new walkways and a small patio down in front of this one. ill keep you guys posted on the patio as we still have a couple more weeks on it but here are some pictures.

    the patio surface will be about 21 - 24" above grade. no grid used the patio isn't high enough to worry about that. i did install a taper back to counteract outward pressure.

    Looks real good.
    That opening is for a water feature or somthing special?
    What's going to hold those blocks in place?
    Is there a drainage behind?

    Keep the pictures coming looks like it will be a nice job

    Looks like a nice job. Is the winter weather affecting you much there? Nice trailer too - sorry to hear about your previous one. What kind of saw do you use? Can you cut all your blocks with it?
