How long are you thinking it would take you to remove the old rock and then replace it with the new?

Keep us posted on how this turns out. I'd love to see some pictures.

I am still not able to picture the job in my head.

Is this going to be a walkway?

steve-customer found it to be too expensive, there is a lot of people around my area who do work at a very cheap price. quality of work isn't always there but i guess that's what people want.
