    I was hoping you had the answers and I would just copy you!

    Thanks,

    We have found the weeds will appear in time regardless. Dust in the wind, bird droppings, and weed seed from near areas will always win.
    Best thing we have found is a little "Round-up" or similar spray when needed.
    Also the best way to control weeds under pasture fence lines.

    Thanks for all the comments! I knew TBN would keep me laughing and going.

    I added a thin layer of sand today to "section 1" and washed it into the gravel. I also finished up the second cross curb to enclose section 1. Tomorrow I will compact again and haul in the final layer of sand that the pavers will set on.

    I will be using Paver Set - see photo - between the pavers. It has worked good on the porches, and still looks good after 2 years. It is keeping out the weeds and ants 98%.

    The pavers you see on the right are the thinner Lowe's pavers for sidewalks. The Lowe's pavers are easier to lay because of the tapered top side and the protrusions that leave a space in-between the pavers. I swept in the Paver Set between the pavers on the sidewalk. That project was a mere 750 pavers. The driveway pavers are more of the brownish color and the sidewalk pavers are more of a reddish color. Hopefully the different colors, paver placement pattern, and the curbing will keep the vehicles directed on the drive.

    Just occurred to me how many paver cuts you'll be making to follow the inner & outer radii of your drive ... HOLY COW! Good thing your heart is doing better!

    My heart is doing better, much better! At one point I was going to leave the driveway white. But I'm going strong again and am trying to finish this project by the one year anniversary of my heart attack.

    Since the drive-way pavers require a 1/4 inch space in-between each paver and because the curve is so long, I am hoping to lay the pavers longways and have very few cuts.....we will see together how that works out. If we decide to do a different lay all bets are off for the self imposed 10 weeks deadline (which by the way starts 1/1/12).
    The basket-weave pattern I used on the sidewalk is not good for curves as I found out by all the cuts required on that one long curved side.

    That will look great I am really impressed by it.
    What we would do is layout everything that we could and then spend a day doing cuts on a large job. We would have one person marking, one person running the pieces over and one cutting, the person running would get a workout taking pieces back and forth. A wet stone saw is worth its weight in gold for a job like that. I cant wait to see the finished pics. good luck.

    W O W !

    If I were in your shoes, everything would be rectangular in exact ratio to the size of the paver...

    I simply do not have the patience to do what you are doing...

    And nothing I ever do will look that good either...

    Simply beautiful thus far sir.

    W O W !
