In all honesty you really need to place your enquiry on the post a job section, on this site.
You will then get some good honest prices from the tradesmen on there.
But in answer to your question, I would imagine tarmac would be the cheaper option.
If it is your front drive, block paviors would look the best.

Hi i know you never said block paving but if you was to consider that it would cost around £1900. I must say that block paving looks alot better than the rest.

concrete is cheaper


Answered 10th Apr 2011

Tarmac and concrete and infact standard block paving are all about the same price to install,tarmac can be a cheaper option if you have a sound existing base if you have topsoil or earth or cracked pot holed concrete then you would need a base and topping coat.without looking at the area and taking into consideration ,drainage and access and levels of existing ground I would say that you could expect to pay between £60-00 - £70-00 per m2 this would include supply and fit and removal of all spoil.

I would have to echo the last answer from Bluestone paving, although around the south coast its more likely to be £70 to £80 per square meter so it would depend on were abouts you are and the other conditions/considerations that Bluestone mentioned.

for £1900 you,d get sub standard and for £3860 you,d get overcharged!!! anywhere in between is good.
