Question paving stones or concrete?

We are going to be putting in a patio on our backyard and would like some advice on the best product to use. We dont want to use wood becsause of the cost and the maintenance. Paving stones is at the top of my list right now because of all the options. but i have been reading a little about concrete stamping. What would be the better option?

Hello there, welcome. Do you have a first name we can go by? I guess you'll have to figure which costs more. Concrete is forever where pavers could evenually move around.

Are you talking professionally installed concrete pavers? The previous is a lot more expensive than concrete to have installed, but will raise the value of your home, cement wont. Pavers just set into sand will do just what MM said.

Best of luck

Hello "nameless one",
I just had 400 feet of stamped and colored concrete poured in my backyard. I paid $9 per foot. Due to design and drainage issues, pavers wouldn't have been an option so I don't have figures to compare to. We're happy with our choice.
