Introducing a surprise element of bold pattern or color in just a small area can instantly elevate inexpensive paving, while opting for cost-effective yet stylish materials means you can keep an eye on costs without having to sacrifice on style.
There are plenty of inspiring cheap paving ideas so you can stamp your personality on a space and truly make the plot your own without having to spend a fortune.
