Burbank have started coming around with their maintenance crew. So far very happy. Probably mainly because the state manager has come around instead of our SS. Good luck trimum

Nice paver edging! What is the purpose of the gravel? I’m thinking it’s to help drainage and stop movement? A neighbour near us had landscapers who just mortared the pavers…
