Before.
Our jackhammer begins to break up the walk, 6 inches thick.

 
Hedge Removal
The hedges on the left are being removed.
The jackhammering has started, cutting away the walk.

 
Jackhammering progress
The inner curved garden is being removed, with the hedges already out.


 

Old Walk Removed
A deep trench has been created, in the old curved shape.
Debris
Tons of concrete are ready to go.
500 pounds of bio-matter has been removed.
Bin, Stone Dust, Paving Stones
We've kept the supplies on the driveway to keep the street clean.
A ton of stone dust is to be installed, with two pallets of pavers.
Stones Installed
The interlock is in.
The edging strips, and sand still to do.
Edge Strips stop Spreading
These rigid plastic strips, secured with long spikes, keep the walk from spreading.
Finishing Touches
We first used the mechanical tamper when compacting the stone dust.
Now we settling the stone pavers on top of the stone dust.
Finished
140 square feet of Trafalgar paving stones.
The water drains away from the house.
