    I always look on sites like letgo or offerup. People sell used pavers or construction crews have leftovers.

    I’ve done mine inexpensive by watching for local add sales, often free if you remove yourself. It’s a lot of work but the cost savings made it all worth it We have a local Varage group also FB has sale sites.

    MAKE your own with Quickcrete & cake pans (cheap disposable tin ones). Mix up the Quickcrete, pour into your pans & let them cure according to package directions. The more pans you have, the more you could get finished at one time. ALSO, when making them, you could insert beads, stones, gems, etc to personalize them. You could make them round, square, rectangle, loaf pan, etc, whatever look you're going for. These will be way cheaper than buying ready-made ones & will please better because you made them yourself.

    my entire backyard is pavers....we used the soil that was there over sand... make sure it is level and you will need a level to make sure each paver is flat.... once the paver is level pack soil around the edges.....
