    it was my first one. the first contractor screwed it up and never put in a rock subbase, just sand so it would sink and washout a little everytime it rained hard. so we fixed it right. enjoy the pictures

    Looks alright!....I personally would have preffered tigher joints. Maybe tap the edges in a bit better cause the first plow that runs over it and theyre gone. Use any poly meric or just straight sand? Nice stones.

    I don't think that's the right block for the application. I think a more uniform paver would fit better with all the linear shapes... ie the concrete sidewalk and curbing. The random nature of the paver you chose makes it seem a little sloppy.

    The install isn't bad though... it would look really nice as a patio or walkway with turf bordering it.

    Was that stone there already? You just pulled it up and re-layed it?
    Looks like you could have turned everything 90 degrees? lined up the soldier course on the outside and run everything else perpendicular to the way they lay??
    I would have liked to see what it looked like before. cant really say if it is better or worse.
