    I have minimal paver experience but am ICPI certified..........I'm in business for myself now after working for two of the biggest companies in my area.................I am more of a landscape design/build guy and mason but am getting more into pavers. I know some of the quirks on this project and will point them out but were caused by the customer (you'll see).

    Any constructive critiquing would be appreciated..........here's my first install all on my own:

    You did a good job, not your problem the homeowner "knows better". I think that "curve" could have been put in but not as noticeable.
