The sub-base work, hidden once completed will cost broadly the same irrelevant of the final surface choice, but whatever you choose it would be a false economy to scrimp here. A good quality sub-base is essential to a long lasting surface. Costs of this being governed by site layout and existing ground conditions.
The finished look will be determined by your choice of material, including the sub-base work you can expect to pay for supply and lay between £80-120 m², for basic concrete cast slabs on a sand base and over £190/m² for high-quality porcelain tiles, with a multitude of choices in between.
