This was actually my first time doing any type of hardscape. I've always wanted to try it, but never had the opportunity. Customer wanted pavers put in front of their shed doors. The doors would scrub into the grass and made them hard to open. I told the customer that I had never done any type of work with pavers and didn't have the first clue about how to do it, but I was willing to learn. These were the perfect customers to learn with. They didn't want an estimate and didn't care how long or how much it cost they just wanted it done. I charged by the hour, plus expenses. They already had the pavers left over from a previous walkway. I only had to get concrete and sand. I sprayed round up on the area the week before to make it easier to remove the grass. I dug down 3" and then laid the brick out to make sure I removed enough dirt. Weed fabric I used 1" pvc to run another piece of pvc across to make a level base. PVC was a bad idea. Even though it was only 8' the pvc would bend. That's why I put a third piece of pvc in the middle. This is what I used as a base. Level and ready for pavers. Complete. Now the doors open freely and I can add "brick layer" to my resume. JK I know that I still have no clue as to what I'm doing. Now pick me apart and tell me I should change before I do it again.
