    paver base panels????????? 5th Mar 18 at 11:30 AM
    hi, i need to install a path in garden (currently grass and mud)

    have had few quotes to cement / slabs but way more than i expected, for area needing to cover

    so thinking of diy route and came across this idea.

    looking for advice/recommendations if anyone has used these and are they any good, or are they just short-term fix,
    thanks

    just been looking to post limks for product but seems like they are only available in usa
    Nice to save.

    do you mean these
    http://ultrabasesystems.com/where-to-use-ultrabasesystems/paver-base-panel/

    UK tend to build on sand base, I think both will need the same sub base work



    most of the cost will be labour.

    have you looked at Cellular plastic gravel grids from about 10sqm

    they will cost a bit more for laying materials and gravel to fill.

    loads of UK suppliers
    eg

    yes ,it is the labour cost that is quite high, that is why i am thinking of diy, although i am novice,been looking at you tube videos for ideas on how to lay.
    i will look at the cellular ones
