The stone guys, Dean and Derek, who have worked with many products on the market, are convinced that you can't install an attractive cobblestone project without hours of backbreaking work. Join them as they collaborate with Orlando, Fla.-based Cobble Systems and learn that you don't have to trade style for ease of labor. They use this system of cast cobblestones attached to a grid backing to complete a driveway project that is not only distinct, but durable and easy to install. They also show viewers how to level and prepare ground for driveways and patio installations and how to design creative and practical projects. In the end, do Dean and Derek find that these cobble systems are too good to be true?
