    Me too. Why crown it and not just pitch to one side? Is it against a structure or freestanding?

    its freestanding surrounded by turf, so if pitching to one side is easier and faster, that's what i'll do. 1" over 25ft, or 2"?

    the place is opening on august 2nd, and the jobsite is already a circus.

    We've also got a pretty good sized planting (about 120 shrubs, 10 big trees, tons of perennials, a few pockets of sod, and about 20,000 feet of soil prep/hydroseed) to squeeze in around where all the other subs are working, so i want the patio to be the least problematic area, logistically speaking.
