sweet trailer man!
Awesome buddy, awesome
Haven't been on here in a while. Still busy and going strong this late in the season which is exciting for me. Usually things are slowing up by now but not this year. Here's some photos of a project I've been working on solo for the past few weeks. Finally made the move and gave the lawns over to my long time helper and another guy to take care of. This project we did a bluestone walkway and patio with 250' of Belgian block curbing and sod, plants are going to be going in next week.
Next time you're doing cobblestone, have your helper organize them in size order before install, keeps them looking smoother and less like snaggletooth.
What were you cutting that bluestone with?
Also relaid a stone driveway yesterday. Move and spread all 30 yards of stone in 4 hours with the help of a skid steer.
Good idea, didn't think of doing that. I feel that it came out good though for my first Belgian block install. I cut all the bluestone with my cut off saw, it's the one and only saw I use for paver installs. Still haven't seen the benefit of a table saw for pavers.
You learn something every day, my dad taught me that one.
The cuts looked scalloped, the table saw will cut straighter and plumb. You won't fit those big pieces on a table saw anyway, but I started using a worm drive saw and diamond blade for bluestone. You can follow a straight edge easier with it. The cutoff has its time and place but most of the time it feels like using a sledgehammer to put up molding.
Did you truck all that stone yourself?
The two cuts on the bottom left in the one photo of the walkway partially done I went back and re-cut. That was just the way I marked them out thinking it had more of a curve to it than it did. I'll have to grab another close up of it when I got back there this week. I did not truck the stone myself would've taken me all day with my truck.
