Paving Costs

From gravel to imported stone: Comparing the costs of different landscape paving options

The cost range of paving materials is quite large. Luckily, this means that nearly every homeowner will be able to find a paving material that fits their budget. Decomposed granite or gravel is usually the cheapest paving option. However, if you decide to add stabilizer be prepared for a considerable price increase. Imported natural stone paving is typically the most expensive option. However, you can achieve a similar look for less money by using stamped concrete.
