Looks good Michael, certainly tidies up that area.

I quite like decking it has it's place when not overdone.
I have a small patch outside the patio doors as a quick fix until I get on with the Grand design. It's been down for four years now :O

Bloody lethal when wet though.

Looks good from here.what joist centers did you use, and how often did you use a noggin?
You can now get grip infills for the grooves on deckboards to stop them being slippy.

Thought the blade might of been a bit big.
Don't know how some of you keep a good line with those stihls, I find the erratic engine revs make the thing hard to balance.

I'd love to be doing more work with setts but people around here don't want to pay the extra.
I'm laying bendy footpaths in brick paving on a full bed with a joint and it's taking forever.
Looks good though.

you have to put yourself in the clients shoes,most people just want to drive on a driveway or sit on a patio
the work you do with setts  Ashley is a statement,like a porsche boxter or a rolex watch,it oozes quality
but as we all know quality costs
that is where concrete block paving comes in :-)

Block paving for me is the best earner with the least hassle.
I don't think it's the best value for the customer. CPB has got a 10 year life before it needs replacing.
A good natural stone drive is there till you get bored, or die.

yes but when people have a choice ; kitchen or swanky drive,they generally go for  the swanky kitchen and do the drive cheaply,not everyone of course or you guys wouldnt be so busy!

That's true. Especially for the people that are completely renovating.
By the time they get round to the gardens money's low.
I had one bloke show me the wet room in a bungalow he'd renovated for his elderly mother in law and he was boasting about the shower head head he spent a grand on only to start trying to knock me down when I told him the patio he wanted would cost him 3 grand :rock:

Going back a few years a customer mentioned to me "when pricing the job, remember there's a recession on".
Just as I was finishing the job at the beginning of March he turns up in a brand new SLK.

I didn't take the recession into account, I knew I'd get the job anyway. I've done work for him before and since.
He's a tidy guy and gave me and the lads a nice bonus.
It just pissed me off that he said that and then turns up in a new Merc.

Someone said to me once "buyers are liars".

Every customer and his dog tried it on in recession time.
There are plenty of neglected gardens due to that recession that need attending to now it's over though :)
