decking needs a lot of maintenance and if you don't like slugs (which love to live in all the cracks and crannies) you would be better off with paving. we've had paving slabs down in our garden since 1976 and a burst with a pressure hose each spring brings them up looking like new.
pros of poured concrete patios: here’s what concrete offers. the price of concrete is significantly less than composite decking and cheaper than paver bricks or stones too, both for material and installation; concrete can be stamped to look like pavers, field stone and other styles
patio or deck which is best? slightly cheaper depending on the wood used; deck downsides. maintenance (requires regular oiling if you want to keep its brown colour) can, of course, be achieved with one size of paving but because the individual paving slabs are much shorter than deck boards, paving will always look slightly

oh thought that decking part of the garden and having the rest to lawn would be cheaper than a patio and lawn. we had two quotes both for over £2000 for a small decked area and larger grassed area. i think the garden is approx 20' x 30'. would it be cheaper to have the paved patio rather than the decking? also which would be easier to maintain?
