Whose Idiot Idea Was This Again?

Ugh what a mind numbing day of labour! What we (Being dad and I) originally thought would be a simple 2-3 hour job max, turned into a full day battle against my front yard. Where most people would lay pavers with sand and mortar, this guy had laid them on top of concrete, which was fused with bricks and more concrete. All of this went down around about a meter and really, really didn't want to come up. It took a lot of work to get all of that bedding up, and the unfortunate part was I had to do all the physical labour side of it myself. On the upside I got to make a fine mess everywhere :) This is what our house looked like before...well actually before we bought the house

We did some work on the house about a year ago, where we removed all of the roses around the front of the house, took out the shrubs down the driveway side and side fence. There was also a tree in the back right hand corner which we removed. All the bark was replaced with urban stone as well, giving us an end result looking something like this:
