    Im looking into replacing my concrete sidewalk with pavers. It is only 48sqft, but it needs to turn 90degrees in about 2ft on the inside corner. My current sidewalk has square corners, I would like to to have radius corners with the new walk. I saw some pavers at HD that I like, but they were not the traditional shape. They were larger and tumbled. I am affraid it would not look right to have sharp raidus with a larger paver. Would it not look right to have a cut edge next to a tumbled edge.

    Any help on what I should do with a sidewalk with a radius?

    "tumble" the cuts for the radius after you cut and measure them.

    Some times a pair of channel locks pinching the cut edge will give you just enough "tumble" to blend them in.

    Buy a few, make the cuts, pinch and see if the result is what you are looking for.

    we use a section of a "circle kit" a lot to make the turns.
