Hi there. I've been reading this forum for quite some time now and finally have a chance to try out some hardscaping. I have a customer who wants a walkway installed from his front door that will corner around his flower bed (out three and a half feet from house) and then slope down to his driveway (a distance of about ten feet with a drop of about a 30 inches). The guy knows I have never done anything like this before and just wants to pay for materials in exchange for being the test subject. I was originally thinking irregular flagstone with hammered edges but now I'm leaning toward using standard pavers in a staggered pattern. What are the pros and cons of each? Do you folks suggest anything different. All help is greatly appreciated and I will show photos when I begin working there. I suspect the job to take about six hours with a two man crew and a plate tamper,shovels,rakes, and a wheelbarrow. I was thinking the walkway would be less than forty inches wide... but as I said.. I am open to any suggestions. Thank you for your help.
