Annnddddd you didn't tell us this sooner, why? haha, great tip!!
Thanks for all the advice. The first job (walkways) came out pretty well adn the customer was ecstatic, but there were a few things I would have done differently, which I did have a chance to do on a smaller patio a few weeks later.
Here are some pics of the before/after's.
and the small patio
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.
