its hard to tell whats going on with that first picture. Did you have to rip that out and level it?

Other then that it looks great.

i dint understand either, when i got the first time, client toll me she had a guy do that for her 5 years ago :confused: supposedly a pond, patio and 2 level to walk :eek: haha. what a joke, i rip everything, pile it and crush it and spread it out and build over the crush stone, trow base material in the top like 3 ft, compact it every 1ft and build over it, i gave the lady 2 year guarantied in material and labor. that patio is not going anywhere. in 25 years,:D

Very interesting!

Did you find any parts of this job to be challenging? Do you feel you learned any lessons from doing it?

i always try to have fun when i work and learn from Avery project, if u are committed to your biz, i ask the clients for a month and to come back in spring 3 days to do the planting, to finish the job, i finish in 23 or 21days.

the people in the neighbor was really impress that i keep working, in rain, Sundays etc. i was there early. i had a a lot positive feed back.

the challenging part is always in the round corners to make it look like is curving u have to do a lot of cuts i spend 2 days only cutting corners.
