Check local laws, Firepits in the County Beachside is OK , Town Of Indi...Banned (an example). another further S. in Mel Bch friend put in a gas fire pit, very nicely done...someone turned him in and Fire Inspector said it had to go....As for the water feature plan on electrical source properly grounded for external use (GFI). No idea on an actual paver contractor just some other things to plan out/verify. It also depends on how remote you are and how cool your neighbors are. Legally the Fire dept said we had to have at least one item "cooking" over the fire or we have to put it out...sounds strange like we need to have 1 hotdog on a stick nearby just in case.

We used Extreme Stucco for paving our driveway and around the pool. Their showroom is in Rockledge and the owner lives and surfs in South Cocoa Beach. Our GC recommended them and they also had the lowest bid.
For the side of the house we went with Wagner pavers because we wanted to install permeable pavers and Extreme did not want to put in a bid. Both were easy to work with and did a fine job. The only issue we did have is that the pattern was not called out on the wagner job so they were not laid in the way we anticipated. Still looks fine. Make sure you have the pattern called out in the contract.
We have future plans for a gas fire pit so I had a chase installed under the pavers so that I can run the gas line at a later date. Think ahead about things like that.....sprinklers, elec and plumbing chase lines.

Manicure America did ours and it looks great. Unfortunately he slipped in pavers that aren't solid color thru and thru. Wouldn't recommend for that reason alone. Still kinda pissed.

I recommend....no pavers they are a p.i.a unless you are ok with dealing with weeds growing in them. I cannot win wish I didn't have them.
