My Tips and Advice:

When we moved into our house about 4.5 years ago, we gained a lovely large patio outside the back doors. It was quite grey and muddy looking, given the weather (it was winter) this wasn’t surprising.

However, when spring came about, I took to cleaning it a little. I simply used a hard bristled brush and used some water and scrubbed. Lots of hard work and not much of a difference.

The next year we were talking to a friend who suggested using a power washer **, and so we decided to buy one. We found one on offer and decided it was a worthwhile investment for all sorts of cleaning jobs, including the cars.

A power washer ** can be expensive to buy, but it a worthwhile investment if you are planning on doing this every year. If you haven’t got the cash, then ask a friend or neighbour to borrow theirs, get someone in to do the job, or consider hiring one

The results were totally amazing – and I am slightly addicted to power washing everything in sight every spring now in readiness for the warmer weather.

We even found that the grey paving slabs were actually a gorgeous creamy brown sandstone of some kind – which was a lovely surprise!

Power washing is definitely a way to get new life from older looking gardens, and to clean just about everything quickly and easily.

I also love the fact that the patio area is clean for when its warm and you go barefoot – then you are walking less dirt into the house – and saving time on cleaning!


How did you get on?

    We too have a pressure washer and it’s amazing what they can clean. My husband cleans with it every spring and again during the summer as needed.
