    This was 550 sq ft of circle kits. Nightmare for cuts.

    I think that circle kits are very overused.... strangely enough, I think that looks cool.

    In the very first pic, the curve is pinched on the right, and I do seem some large gaps where you've used wedges in the field.

    edit: maybe those aren't gaps, but just debris on the pavers? Maybe your poly sand is really high?

    Here is the front yard from last year

    Phase 3 is the other side of the pool next year.

    $15,000 collected so far.

    Around the greenscape side a stacked limestone wall was placed by the landscaper so it looks finished now.

    back looks sweet! Front....not so sweet! Edge of the driveway really messes it up for me.

    I would have gone in an cut the concrete so that you had a straight edge to work off. Every paver along the concrete should have been cut. That is a great looking job but that one area make the whole job look like some one took a major shortcut.

    Overall it is a very nice job, but i would go in and cut a bunch of wedges to make it look finished.

    Ditto. Big time. Cut a straight line across those pavers and throw a soldier in their. IMO, it's a must to save that portion.

    I love the way that looks.

    Definitely not my first choice, but I think it is pretty sweet.

    I'm kind of dizzy now though.
