Quotes for 500 sq. ft. of interlock paving in rear garden

I'm looking to get interlock installed in my rear garden here in Durham, which is approx 20x25ft (500 sq ft).

I've had two quotes so far:

1. $13,000 + materials
2. $14,500 all inclusive

Both of these seem really high to me as the material cost for the stone I want is $4000 including delivery.

In comparison my neighbour had her garden done - same size - for $4,800. Granted this was 3 years ago so I was expecting maybe $6-7k today.

Just wanted to check in so I don't get ripped off.

I assume one of the quotes was from the same person who did your neighbors?

Alrighty then.

A good price would be around 10k. 25$/sq.ft is the going rate inclusive of materials. With yours being a decent size you may get discounted to 20$/sq.ft

Yikes! Not too long ago $15/sq ft from a good contractor was considered a reasonable price to pay.
