    This was 550 sq ft of circle kits. Nightmare for cuts.

    I think that circle kits are very overused.... strangely enough, I think that looks cool.

    In the very first pic, the curve is pinched on the right, and I do seem some large gaps where you've used wedges in the field.

    edit: maybe those aren't gaps, but just debris on the pavers? Maybe your poly sand is really high?

    Here is the front yard from last year

    Phase 3 is the other side of the pool next year.

    $15,000 collected so far.

    Around the greenscape side a stacked limestone wall was placed by the landscaper so it looks finished now.

    back looks sweet! Front....not so sweet! Edge of the driveway really messes it up for me.

    Wow, looks like a set that they would use for a movie. . . Very nice work.

    I would have gone in an cut the concrete so that you had a straight edge to work off. Every paver along the concrete should have been cut. That is a great looking job but that one area make the whole job look like some one took a major shortcut.

    Overall it is a very nice job, but i would go in and cut a bunch of wedges to make it look finished.

    Ditto. Big time. Cut a straight line across those pavers and throw a soldier in their. IMO, it's a must to save that portion.

    I love the way that looks.

    Definitely not my first choice, but I think it is pretty sweet.

    I'm kind of dizzy now though.
