    Personally, I always start from the house and work toward the driveway, that leaves the only cuts at the driveway if you are doing a running bond pattern. If you are doing a complex pattern than I dont think it matters as long as both ends end up at the right height.

    Start at the house....and work your way down grade to the driveway....this way you will be sure that the water runs away from the house.

    I agree, alwasy work from the house. You need a good flow line, as well as cuts are away from house, to the most part, and your downward slope to your grade to the driveway.
