    I have a couple of questions:
    Do you think 3 blocks high will by to high with the dirt against the house, and what about the drain ports, and will 2 blocks high on the drive way put the mulch line right under the dryer vent?
    Are you going to be tapering the wall to have the tops level or are you follow the slope of the ground?
    what kind of base are you going to use?
    Are you installing new landscape lighting?
    Who picked out that color?

    Looks like the neighbor needs some serious help next, it's always nice to finish a job and move right next-door to another. Anyway looking forward to more pics that are devoid of a Dodge.

    There will be no dirt up against the house. a gravel barrier will be laid up against the bring for termite reasons. i will dig out somemore before i lay the paver base.
    the caps will all be level.

    the homeowner picked the color. it actually looks really good in person. for some reason, my camera throws the colors off.

    yes, i am installling new landscape lighting.

    time to get some sleep. 5am comes fast.

    That looks really good so far I really the curves, and it looks like the color looks good with the house.

    the only thing i would do different is not have seperate beds with the front and side of the driveway. i would just continue the front bed in a straight line along the driveway all the way to the garage. it looks good though!

    Called it quits early today. Got rained on pretty good & wasn't in the mood to work in the mud today. Need to finish my postcard designs & mailing list. Spring push is right around the corner.
