Here is a job we are about to complete....if it ever stops raining. Materials in the design are Salt&Pepper Granite pattern pavers, Black Diamond Granite Pavers as the border, NewEngland fieldstone walls, and Bluestone capping (also used as raised border), and lighting by Vista.

Picture 1 is the design for the job.....

Very nice work - what is it like working with the reprocessed asphalt, any diffrences?
We only use the reprocessed asphalt because it’s the only aggregate that consistently meets astm-2940 from my supplier. I would prefer just straight stone, but it gets the job done. I have not experienced the bituminous properties of the aggregate having any effect on the above stone but it is always in the back of my mind.

What software program are you using for the rendering? Great job.
Many programs are used to achieve the final results, but Vue7 Xtreme is the render engine. Here are some other angles. You like 'em?

Heck yeah. When a customer sees a realistic presentation of their home with added construction, it further solidifies them to hiring you. Good job.

great work

the overhead view is special. words escape me just had to look at it for a while in silence. Still cant think of good enough words. lol very very nice!!
have over 20 years in masonry without ever doing any granite. only saw i have ever needed was skill saw with diamond blade used mainly for fireplace mantles or the hearth. dont worry about the 8" of compacted reprocessed asphalt. as long as you packed it tightly.
