new pavers for garden

Post by mymodeltrain » Sat May 04, 2019 3:30 am

After many years, I realized that more space is needed to enjoy the garden railway, so I decided to get rid of the hedge against the wall and designing new pavers. It took the contractor only 2 days to execute the plan and they just finish by now. My family really enjoyed such a spacious environment this evening.

That really looks superb and presumably an added bonus is that you don't have to cut the hedge anymore.

That makes the most of your available space and looks superb. You have a good design and installation team there.

Rod,
It is done by a local contractor; they use the stones from Tremron. You can choose in their stock the stones that fit your garden; they have many types, such as "antiqued", "mega olde towne" or "bullnose coping" types, and this in my garden is "stonehurst". Each stone/brick is 2.25-inch thick. The contractor usually charges about $30/sq. ft. I could afford half of my garden; I will finish the other half later. But it worths, look at my previous setting after I removed the hedge, usually against the wall.
