I'm quite pleased with my loose lay block brick paving.
Lots of people have excess at the end of a project and give or sell very cheaply
As for weeds you get some, but they struggle and are easily dealt with. Being loose lay you can easily fix any subsidence though of course a decent base helps that not happening.

[quote="Slim:1483361"]It gets weirder. In New Zealand they call gravel roads "metal roads"

Then they spray concrete finely on them add "Tar Seal" and chippings..so sealed/unsealed roads too

If you are looking for long lasting, oak or chestnut are the best in the UK.
