Patio paving design tool needed

Posted: 03/04/2013 at 00:47

Does anyone know of any online software that can help design the layout of patio paving? I want to replace my patio using different sized paving stones in a random effect, something like this..

 I'd like a design tool that creates suggested patterns so I can order the correct quantities of paving stones with the least cutting.

Thanks.

By chance I was going through my seed tin today and came accross some Delphinuim seeds given to me by a neighbour in 2008 that I had forgotten about. Who reckons they will be any good? They have been kept dry but im unsure..

Ive never grown Delphiniums before and I fancy sowing some seeds this spring. But im unsure which veriety to buy. Crocus have the Centurian Blue F1 which look nice, but they are £5 for 10 seeds. 

So im after some advice on which Delphiniums people here have grown well from seed?

My boy is 6 and is quite competent in water, to the point where im happy enough to have the pond, but I don't want to take chances. Glad this thread popped up again as the project has been on hold over winter, but will be going ahead soon.

Tomato Growpots, any good?

Thanks. Mixed opinions then I see. I reckon I'll give them a miss and continue with the bottomless pots & growbag routine.

Your garden doesn't look any where near as bad as I expected. I think your right to give yourselves a year to decide. In that time you can doodle sketches of how you might want it to look.
