Paving concern

Any thoughts on this paving? I think the front and back grout lines should align with each other but the landscaper has laid the back paving in line with the back wall (our garden is an odd shape). He said that to make them align, the back paving would have to be wider at one end than the other but I think that would be preferable. It throws all the lines of the garden off. Do you think he should have consulted me on this first? I want to get it rectified but suspect we will have to pay as it is essentially cosmetic. https://flic.kr/p/w4ygut

    Yep it is seriously bugging me but some people I spoke to barely noticed. The middle bit will be lawn but it is still very noticeable, for me. Thanks!
  • My vote would go with both bits of paving being aligned BUT with lawn in situ and some pots, I suspect you won't notice.

    Thank you. I am going to see if it can be changed but if not, any tips to help disguise would be great!

    I can't get the link to work, but something similar happend to us with a striped carpet and a strangely shaped room once. We took a photo of the finished work and then adjusted the photo to "straighten" the error. We then submitted the two photos to the company and asked them which looked better. They chose the straight one. "Well in that case would you mind coming back........?"image

    Interesting! I don't know if I am clever enough to adjuSt the photo, besides it is so bad in my eyes that I can't understand how anyone couldn't see the issue! Try copy and pasting this:

    Kai_63, yes,  agree with you, we had paved drive laid in lat house, asked for it to be done particular way(costs loads!!!) First row was not how we agreed, kept asking, in the end Hubby just took them out and re-laid them as we asked.  I wouldnt notice as much as him, but he would point it out.  Friend had conservatory built, side of house one colour, back different.Work started while he was at work, wrong colour, a couple of years down the line its going to Court!  Maybe a tad extreme for paving, though!!!
