    As professionals it's our duty to educate and guide. We have some jobs where we did the clients horrible design. And I have some folks where I've said "no way no how, call someone else"

    I agree completely, however, with the economy the way it is, this was a GOOD paying job and its hard to turn those away even if you don't completely agree with some elements of the design.
    I have followed this forum for some time and I value your comments along with a few others. Thanks for actually taking the time to explain rather than offering a one line comment such as "pavers look cheap"

    If you can't tell that those pavers look cheap you have been living under a rock, I have not used a paver like those in over 10 years, I typically use UNILOCK who has a similar paver and they are bottom of the barrel. Like I said earlier you had a good idea it just wasn't executed very well. Sorry I didn't respond fast enough for you, I've been busy running a business.

    Dude calm down. I wasn't referring to you. Go take your meds and go run your business and have a nice day

    You actually offered some explanation. Someone else posted the one-liner.

    We install alotta Nicolock.

    They have all the same pavers as the other companIes. There are only 2 mold manufacturers, 1 in Germany 1 in Md.

    I'm on my phone, can't see the pic, what pavers are they?

    They look like Colonial Cobble. Im sure the pavers will hold up well so I guess maybe the term cheap wasn't what I meant as you can now buy similar looking pavers at Home Depot, I should have used the term "outdated".
