DOH!!!!!!!!

A dutch stone walkway........doh!

With no soldier course..........double doh!

I can understand the dutch stone, but no solder course???????? why oh why oh why........

Lol.......there's just some things that really rub me the wrong way.


Very nice design, good layout though.....I like the fountain on the patio, as it kind of has its own spot on that round part. Good layout, fits well with the space, and the contemporary house....

Just please.........put a soldier course on next time...........(and don't ask me what I think about the red flash/sand combination....lol)

MWM what are the SRW units? Looks like Versa-Lok?
Nice layout. I agree on the soldier coarse - like em need em.
What did you do with the siding that was at the patio level? Cover or remove. Nice space!

I agree that the project could have looked better with a different selection of pavers, colors and the addition of a soldier course. However, the homeowners had decided on this look after seeing something similar at a friends.

The wall units are Versa-Lok.

The siding was removed to allow for a 1" gap above the pavers. Flashing was installed behind the siding and over a waterproof membrane that was adhered to the poured concrete wall.

Nice attention to construction detail - Flashing, etc.
As far as the "look" goes, if the homeowner is happy, be happy.

the over head shots look much better........the coloring of the steps vs. the walks doesn't look so bad


Nice job

The overheads look freakin' awesome; plant some groundcovers (Sedum, Thyme, POTW26) along the edges and you won't even miss that solider course!

The project does look tons better with the aerial shot - seeing the big branch in the foreground, I can imagine what you had to do to get that pic.

This discussion has been included in the site beginner's brick paving page.

Nice workmanship.

The customer is always right, even if you have to discretely direct them in the right direction.
