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

Number two for one reason that Tradesmen will understand.

Number one requires slabs to be disc cut as triangles. Sharp stone or concrete triangle
shapes are prone to the pointed ends breaking off. No matter how well bedded in they are and no matter how well pointed the ends will always be vulnerable when walked on as there is so little of the material left.
There is a way to avoid those shapes but it will use 20% more slabs

Thank you for your advice, I'll ask the guy about this as I don't want broken slabs!
