I have just been informed by my customer that she likes the look of the slabs over the individual pavers. Being the accomodating contractor, I will do as she wishes; however, I have not used slabs (16" x 16" x 1 3/4") before and have a couple of questions.
I plan to do the prep work the same as if I was using pavers but I don't know if I should use a compactor to set the slabs. Also, what is the best way to cut them as I have a couple of curves to create?

Answer to Q1. NO! not unless you like that broken flagstone look. Bed in sand and tap in LIGHTLY with a deadblow rubber hammer.
Q2. Cut with a concrete saw or skilsaw with a concrete blade. Concrete in these is usually soft and cuts easy.

i agree with SCL. we have used them before and they were difficult to install without breaking. they were from Pavestone. EP henry has a similar style paver that is slightly thicker and much more durable we found.

good luck with the job.
