It's cool bud. Been quoted £162 for 4.5 ton type1 delivered loose.
How's that price sound ?

Also been told I need white sand and cement for these slabs as there granite and the orange sand will stain through or something.

Does anyone have a program to calculate a layout for random patten with sized slabs ?
I'm buying these ones Dark Grey Dusk Granite Patio Kit -Natural Stone Paving Slabs - Project Pack 18m² | eBay

The size of area is.

3m width at top.
7.3m height.
1.8m at bottom with taper running on right hand side top to bottom. /

Not a lot to go on TBH. Are the slabs a fixed size? Maybe a straight overlap and cut off the taper?

Sorry M8, missed that! TBH, I'd just do what I always do, lay 'em out dry and when you're happy with the arrangement mark them in order. I always do that with natural stone because the colour varies etc.

Well type1 mot come today. 5 ton of it. Had 3 bulk bags of white sharp delivered other day and a pallet of charcoal pavers.
Got 18sqM of granite slabs coming hopefully Friday.




Anyone know how much the type1 compacts ? I need 10cm bed so how deep do I need to lay it before whacking.

Another update.

Not checked the program out yet but slabs are 800x200. With 4mm gap.



Type1 is pretty much in. Drainage channels are in place now. Just cemented them in literally half hour ago lol

Half way there. Cutting the granite is time consuming. Grinder does not like it at all even with a diamond disk on it.

Must say huge thank you to neorage for his help
