Laying out Garden Slabs in a Cost Effective Manner

Part of the process of garden design will involve some sort of base, be it made from slate chippings, gravel or paving slabs. Depending on which type of material you chose, you may want to see what the price differences of each are and map out which particular base unit allows for most coverage.


Paving slabs are a good option. They a generally much cheaper than both gravel and slate chippings and can come in a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses meaning you’ll be able to work along the lines of exactly what you want your garden to look like.


Before buying any of the aforementioned materials, it is important to draw up a mockup and scale map of exactly how much material you will need. This will help you calculate the direct costs associated with using the above materials. By doing so, you can plan your garden in the cheapest manner possible.
