    How do you go about building step ups in your paver patio out of the orignal pavers? I understand how to build them out of retaining wall block such as versalok but not the same pavers your using in the job. Also is it a smart idea to have a finished screed with a wavy up and down surface to follow surrounding elevations or to keep the screed level all the way across and build retaining wall sides to compensate for the changing heights. Could use the advice. thanks guys.

    Never follow the surrondong elevations. Always have your paving base flat. Not level. Flat.

    On walkways i might end up putting in 15in of base in some parts if the original ground had dips.
