    you can do it that way and yes its less work, but the way he did it (Jacob)looks 100x's better.

    I just did a project and laid out the border of the paved pathway first, then filled it in second. Which way is correct?

    In the eyes of the unexperienced I would agree with your statement.

    I've gotta agree, there's no flow the way jacob did it. Its fine to do it like that, but I don't think its the most pleasing for the eyes when walking down the path.

    If you do it the way Jacob has you could add another soldier running across (perpendicular to path) every 15ft or so (measure total distance divide by 4 say)...would carry it a little better and add a design element.


    Wouldnt take long with the cut off either.

    But Screw that I would runner bond to start.

    Thats a great idea, essentially dividing it into sections. I thnk that would make a pretty slick use of the straight lines in the field pavers.
