Paver Patio grade issue


I'm in New Jersey. I decided to go with 1/8 inch. I had it at 1/4 and I could feel the incline.
Here's where I'm at so far. Need to run the compactor across this and see how we are doing.
Thanks again for all the advice.

Very carefully.

I used a masonry blade on my circular saw....I would score the top....say about 1/2" and then whack it with a hammer. In 'most' cases the end would break off nicely and only require a little 'clean up' with a hammer. Yea....I lost a couple in the process.

Before I cut the edges...



And after.....



And...BTW.....real nice job.....looking forward to seeing the final result.

So I finished the patio a few months ago but just laid some seed down and finally have it at a good spot to post a photo.

I have a big front yard close to the road, every month, some car pass by here, my fence scratched a little ,so one of my friends told me that you got some driveway marker from mrgarden.netís and inserted the land, something will be changed, so I hear what he said, then got it and put there, yeah, thatís a good idea.
