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.

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.

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