    Whats wrong with this picture. OMG this company "cough cough" is installing a patio just up the street where we are working. This is NOT his first job in the area. I want to go ring the bell and blast the owners, but I'm a disciplined individual and won't lower myself to this CRAP.

    Had to get it off my chest.

    Note patio slab leaning on neighbours siding. :nono:

    They were there backed up on the lawn in a pick-up truck throwing the blocks off the back of the truck. That was 3 days after they unloaded all the stone by hand off the truck. I wanted to take a video of it. Its kinda of funny yet ...sad.

    I'll have you know that the only reason I have not been back to the site is that the rental yard has all of the plate compactors rented, so I have to wait! Besides, the longer I wait the more the stone gets compacted...DUH!

    I will keep you updated. I think next week they are grading the stone and building the steps. Projected completion is Sept. :laugh:

    We used the self leveling base material, first good rain and you'll all be amazed, once it gets wet it levels out, compacts and grows paver with a perfect pattern and no running bonds, mitered corners where needed and so tight there is not even a need for sand. This is the wave of the future....And cgland ---- How dare you take credit for my masterpiece.:drinkup:

    Ps- I'm selling the seeds you need for this new technology, but you gotta trade me a cow.....LOL
