Do you have an opinion on the pillars? I'm leaning towards the pattern on the left (dark purple above, dark blue, light blue, light purple, dark purple, light purple) -- the one on the right seems a bit choppy to me. But I'm not sure. And of course, we could try other configurations...
The landscapers had three guys digging the path yesterday -- brutal labor, it looked like, shoveling it all out by hand. Then they poured gravel into it (also a huge pain, shoveling it into wheelbarrows and dumping it out):
And then this morning, they raked it:
Next, I think they stamp it down, then add sand, then put in the pavers (concrete, grey, in a running bond pattern). Can't wait to see how it looks. So glad they're the ones doing the heavy lifting, and not me.
