    Don't let Mbella see that trip step...

    EDIT: On further consideration, is every step a different height???

    Yes...every step has a different rise.... :)
    you cant see it that well in the next pic but the patio paver's are waaaaay crooked. Funny thing is the guy is currently offering 20% off all landscaping services...

    That's bad, but unfortunately, I've seen a lot worse. My neighbor's hardscape is AWFUL. The sad part is they paid a fair price and the guy was recommended by the local EP Henry dealer. One of these days I'll sneak over and take some pics.

    One day when the contractor was working on my neighbor's hardscape, I was mowing and I stopped to say hello. He was loading pavers onto his truck. I said," Are they extra pavers?" He said, "No. I mark them here and then I take them home and cut them." I was thinking, wtf? I just said,"Oh." They're out there.
