    Pics 2,4 & 5 - Excellent work. Lines are straight, pattern tight and the bull nose looks great!
    Pic 3 - Again, very clean, tight & bull nose work looks the balls. Nice irregular shaped patio off of main house. The only thing i would have done different is in regards to the running bond pattern of pavers between the bull nose and the patio. I would have carried that running bond pattern right across those small steps instead of bumping it out and around them. Not sure if that makes sense. I really like the color and pattern of the pavers that make up the bulk of the pool patio, and would have like to seen more of it. Your pics reflect pride in doing quality work, as well as attention to details!

    Thanks, I know what you mean by carrying the brick around, my foreman likes to do it that way, I suggested the other way, but he won. The main reason he had was the concrete sub deck follows almost exactly as the "track" around the pool, so if we were to flow it around like your talking about it would create more work since the brick would now have to go on a compacted base. The field brick is 1cm different in height so it really would of been a pain to make those additional adjustments. Hope you get what I mean, but at the same time I have to agree with your comments.

    The coping is adhered by a thinset mortar.

    Wow, pic #3 is crazy good. All of them are fantastic though. I can't believe how nice those pavers look. What brand are they? I have not seen those in my neck of the woods. Incredibly beautiful work Zedo, Bravo!!!

    Where you have pavers laid from the pool to the foundation of the house, which direction did you slope the pavers for drainage?
