I like the first .
Our garden has just been completely paved as the grass was just a nightmare , boggy and full of leatherjackets .
Looks wonderful now and so much bigger as its not a very big garden but now its all usable space

Thank you for your suggestion we went to the end of the brick wall (next doors garage!) as the grass won't grow there as it doesn't get any sun? 🤔. Its so hard to decide what to do!? I find it hard to picture what it will look like

The other option is full paving (more expensive and not as aesthetically pleasing) It is such a hard decision what to do
Probably a similar cost if you take off the artificial grass? It's an expensive business isn't it!

It really is we are going to have to borrow to do it but it has been waiting 5 years and it feels like now is the best time the oldest is 12 and hasn't ever really had a space to play

We've also had our garden fully paved. We had an extension last year and were going to have paving and artificial grass. In the end we had a tree removed from the end of the garden and went for paving as we just thought it was easier and more practical now dd is 13. We love our new courtyard garden and it's so easy to maintain and actually seems bigger as we can use all the space.

OP I like both but have voted 2 as think it's probably more practical.

I want fully paved but DH wants the grass I think like you that the paving is easier long term although I do have a boisterous 5yo and 8yo

1 looks better but I think 2 gives you more scope to place your furniture
