Looking to pave my garden but its pretty large and would cost me a fortune to get them from B&Q.
Does anyone know of anywhere that is reasonably priced.
Cheers
Rach

Decide on what you want and ring round the builders merchants for comparison.

I would just say that if you go for the cheapest, you will regret it in a year or two when they have crumbled away to nothing!

Hardcores on claywheels lane, was there myself last week and their cheapest range (york riven i think) looked quite good, i think around 2 a slab.
looked better than b&q's cheapest.

Fantastic place I found on the web called Larossa Mill Paving, tel 01709 880853, very reasonable prices, sun circles cheapest I've ever seen! They sell slabs cheap NOT cheap slabs!!!!!! Great service aswell and they even gave me a laying plan to show where to place every slab. Prices start from 99p per slabs and that's coloured with a riven texture finish.

goldlady beat me to it. Larossa Mill Paving in Thurnscoe are brilliant. I've bought all my slabs for front and back garden from them. I am putting a sun circle down in the front garden. Tracy and Dave - fabulous personal service and they deliver anywhere. You won't find bettter I'm sure. They will even produce you a slab layout plan - all you do is give them the size you want to fill.

There is a pub on the right hand side going down chesterfield road > queens road at the bottom just after?/before? the bridge.
You might be able to get some cheap ones there.
I remember someone mentioning that they had it repaved and put the old paving slabs around the back of the garage/shed.

So depending how nice, and how cheap you are wanting to get it done for, it might be worth you buying a pint and having a chat with the landlord/lady.

I was going to look into buying them for our garden, but it turns out our gardens are not our gardens, and is communal land, so that shot that plan in the foot.
If you happen to want a galvanised shed, I have an 8ftx7ft for sale, that is currently occupying our hallway, again that would be in our garden too, if we had one.

Just noticed this post has been revived from 01-04-2007 by Gold lady who i'm guessing works for Larosa paving mill.

I hope the op got his garden finished.

After scouring round for some paving slabs - decided to check out some of the places mentioned in this blog, found Larossa Mill Paving's web site as mentioned in the above posts, have to admit it's surprisingly good and prices are very reasonable - went along to have a look at their stuff 'in the flesh' and was not disappointed - patio worked out cheaper than I expected, so much so that I could afford some balustrade aswell! Did have to wait a couple of weeks though for delivery - but yes - highly recommended.

Not interested in paving slabs but how much would a 70ft long paling fence (7ft high, wooden posts, no gaps) cost from your place?
