With so many colours, styles, textures and sizes to choose from, we've compiled a list of the best selling patio flagstones in this garden paving buying guide for the UK.

From small 10m2 garden patio projects up to 250+m2 commercial landscaping works, the paving slabs in this garden paving buying guide have been chosen for their appearance, durability and cost effectiveness.

We recommend first identifying whether a traditional or contemporary feel is sought, then choosing a rough colour palette to create the desired mood.

Varying source materials, finishes and textures of flagstones can work with most styles and colours, although crisp sawn edges are most popular with modern settings and hand cut styles most chosen for traditional locations.
