    Keep it coming. I really enjoy your pics and think you have a unique equipment selection. I am trying to refurbish an A300 right now. They are just incredible machines. To me they have less of a footprint than a tracked machine. I would have really liked to find an A220, but there is NOTHING used for sale in that particular model.

    No worries, you have your opinion and that's fine. I can assure you there is edge restraint on each and every job. We wouldn't be in business for 30 years if we didn't. Its usually just covered by mulch or loam on the side. We don't use geo-textile under walks or patios unless there is clay or loam present after excavation. We have very sandy, gravely soil here. We also compact the ground at the bottom of the excavation before the base goes in. What pictures are you referring to about bond lines? Again i appreciate your comments and opinions even though i don't always agree with them.:)

    I think everything looks good. I personally don't like all the granite, but you explained why you use it. Nice equipment too!

    Thank you. A300's are great machines you will love it when you get it refurbished.

    One in particular would be the small walkway that adjoins the circle patio, the permeable one where there is no border, the last one that is curved just needs to be smoother, gotta stand back and look at your work, couple more, but don't want to make an issue of it. Long as you and your customers are happy.

    Anything I have or have accomplished in my life I owe to hard work. :)
