It's an old stone mix concrete of some kind, at least 20years old I think and basically it looks ugly, is uneven, is slowly breaking up. It's at the back of the house stopping for the garden (semi) and reaches around the side to the back of the garage and side fences to the front of the house with a side gate.
I'd hazard a guess that a nice bricked patio which matches our front driveway would be an extorionate £4000+
However a simple cheap tarmac would crack and chip within years.
So what I want to know is what should I get (so that I can ask for quotes for that particular type of patio material) that's durable and will last many years but present a nice uniform backgarden and patio area, I've no idea where to look for such things though...
help please :)
