    here are some pics of a recent job. We still have to finish the trim work on the pergola, but all the lighting is done and the ceiling fan is going in tomorrow.

    Thats a good clean looking install....very nice work. Looks like they are going to have some drainage issues with the grade of the lawn and driveway in the area of the downspout. You run into grades like that every now and then that become quite a challenge to find somewhere to pipe the runoff to!

    actually the grade is fine. there is a 2% grade coming back to the driveway from the far end of the wall. i graded it myself with a swell in the middle to match the one in the drive. they have been watering like crazy and had a few good rains since the sod went in and it is doing well.

    Looks good! On a front entrance i never go smaller than 4' wide on steps and walkway. I also realize it's not always our (installers) call. Nice job!

    funky houses in that neighborhood. it is the back yard and the garage comes in from the back. that is why we only did 3' steps. not to mention the area is so small 4' steps would look out of place.

    Looks pretty good IMO I still would have done wider steps and used a 3" block I don't really like big blocks on shorter walls.

    do you not usually do a border course on your pavers?
