How much to charge for a 20x30 foot paving stone driveway?

I have a 20x30 driveway and would like to know how much I should charge for the job? It's just basic three size stone, but I'm not sure how much to estimate for labour and installing the paving stone? I've been landscaping for years but have never done a job on my own.


Hi Al,
I am not an installer, but here is my two cents worth.

I believe you are talking about pavers. First, check out my page on paving costs. These are installed prices and they are general. It all depends on what part of the country you live in, but more important, as you must know there is a lot more that goes into installing a driveway rather than just laying the stone.

Is there re-grading to be done, drainage, compacting, etc.? All this will impact your time and thus your price. If it's a straight easy job, then the going rates on the above mentioned page should work. But allow yourself some cushion for the unexpected issues (and there usually are some)! Roughly 20 x 30 = 600sf x $15 = $9000.
