You need to supply more information to get a cost any where near, for what you need.
ie; access, whats the ground like, depth of digging, hardcore, blinding and whacking.
The preparation is quite time consuming, and needs to be done right.
If the base was already in, ready for slabbing then it would only take a day.
Then the hourly/daily rates are different in each area.
Post your job on here and get a few prices, it wont cost you anything.

The cost of doing the groundwork and then laying your slabs excluding the cost of the slabs would be between £500 and £600.

85% of the cost should be the installation. The other 15% is the cost of the slab itself. Its always best to get a fixed price rather than a day rate for labour and materials.
