    What would you of done differently? I noticed you didn't put any polysand yet.

    Yes. There was a two week period of rain when we were trying to finish these jobs back in October, so the poly sand didn't go in until a few weeks later.

    As far as doing things different, on the first job I laid the pavers exactly like the pattern guide i downloaded showed, which caused a lot of repetition which I can notice when I walk the paths. On the second time around, I just made sure the shapes fit, and it flew by.

    I was under the impression that you have to start the arbels in the very center of where you're working and work out from there, so there was a lot of time spent carrying pavers up and down the paths. As we moved along, we realized that as long as you keep the pattern, you can start anywhere.

    I also brought the plants in a little early and had to be extra careful not to ruin them, causing us to move a little slower.

    Anxious for another Arbel job so we can tighten things up even more.

    Mega Arbel is a great stone, but used in such a way as you have makes me wonder why something different wasn't used or maybe just lay them in a way that requires no cutting. So much time and effort.

    When will people ever learn how to use the search feature of this forum?! It's all been covered. At least 3 times. :)
