We've built a handy calculator that lets you know just how many slabs of each size you will need to cover the area you need to.

How To Use The Paving Slabs Calculator

  1. Measure the length and width of your patio
  2. Plug the numbers in!

That's it. The calculator will then let you know just how many slabs would be needed depending on the size of slab you want.

If you are going for the mixed size patio packs, the calculator will display the total square meterage required and the subsequent number of each size slab required. The slabs in a patio pack are the following sizes:

  • 90cm x 60cm
  • 60cm x 60cm
  • 60cm x 29cm
  • 29cm x 29cm

The patio packs come in an even mix of each size, so the calculator tells you how many of each size slab you will need to cover your entire area. If you wish to know all the costs involved, read our comprehensive patio costs guide.
