    Thats nice and all, but for such a small area it's a waste of time and money. Any experienced contractor can trowel that by hand and set the pavers to the right height with a mallet. If we really need to "screed to perfection", I'd rather just make a screed board out of some wood furring strips, and throw it away when we're done.

    When we build a landing thats inset with pavers, I crown the landing up about 1/2" so water runs off from the middle. Another reason for troweling by hand.
