The stone masons, Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns, have worked with many of the products on the market and are convinced that you can't install an attractive cobble stone 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 a system of cast cobble stones attached to a grid backing to complete a driveway project that is not only distinct, but durable and easy to install. They also show how to level and prepare ground for driveways and patio installations and how to design creative and practical projects. In the end, will Dean and Derek find that these Cobble Systems are too good to be true?
