I checked every single container today and there is not a damn thing happening in there. Several people in blogville are reporting growth in their WS containers so I'm not sure what's going on. It's warm and sunny today so get to growing, seeds!
The paver guy came by today to look at my space and he'll call me with an estimate later. He talked me out of the stamped concrete when he mentioned the cracking. One thing I didn't like is that he really had no design ideas. I was hoping he'd come out and have some big grand vision that I'd totally buy into. Instead, he simply measured and said I should pick the kind of bricks I want. The more I think about this design thing the more I realize that I'm not so much BAD at it as I am insecure. If somebody else designs it and I don't like it, I can blame them. If I design it and hate it then I can only blame myself. Oh well, time to go paver shopping! Oh, by the way, I spoke to a composite decking guy who was extremely nice but told me that it would be almost 3 times as expensive as pavers. HOLY CRAP! He's still going to give me an estimate on a pergola - hopefully I'll be able to afford that.
