Final video of the Unilock display that was installed at Beaver Valley Stone. It was quite a ride! The frost took a long time to leave the display area because it doesn't get a lot of sun. The spring was non stop rain, rain, rain and more rain! Putting the fence back in was pure torture because there were large cobbles right in the way. All in all though they got it done. Good Job!

Avante Ashlar Patio, Jet Black Granite Steps, Complete!
 
02:25
After I read a blog post about not overlooking front courtyards it was not that long after that I was in fact, installing pavers in a front courtyard. Hmm, deja vu? Sometimes the front and side yard areas are going to be your only available patio area. This is especially true in the Toronto area, many corner lots do not have a back yard. So why not create a nice courtyard/entrance area. And that's exactly what this homeowner wanted. http://terraform.ca/index.php/latest-projects/89-avante-ashlar-patio-jet-black-granite-steps-complete Patio Stone Unilock: Avante Ashlar, Sierra Color.

Polymeric sand, it's all in the details.

Finishing off a paver job. It's best to take your time at the end rather than rushing it. You may have to return to a project to apply the polymeric sand. If the surface is wet or damp in any way, do not apply the polymeric sand. It's all in the details.

Walking floor truck unloading mulch
 
03:04
I was unloading at Farmer Jacks, Stouffville, On when a huge truck pulled in. I had my camera with me so I took this video of how the truck unloads. It doesn't dump but rather the floor inside the truck moves towards the back thus moving the material out the rear. This is called a 'Walking Floor" system.

This is the first time we have used Banas Rebated 2" coping on a project. This coping would be used where you have a step height problem and need to lower the step height while still maintaining the appearance of 2" coping. This also lowers the amount of mortar build up used in the field pattern.
