James' Patio

May 2020

During Lockdown etc, we decided to make use of the recent good weather and do something about our neglected rear garden as the paving hadn’t been cleaned for over 20 years. So out came the jet wash and away we went starting on the top level by the garage and greenhouse, well not quite, I could only manage 1/2 hour spurts. Then after a recovery break off we went again.

Eventually as you can see, job done slabs and walls all cleaned. The first two pics show how bad it was before. Of course it’s not finished yet. Having to regrout the slabs using dry and/or wet mortar mix as the jet wash flushed a lot out. Also have to refix the wall cappings.

Well guys and girls nightmare nearly over. Grouting done and capping fixed using exterior No Nails glue. Must say looks pretty good, although I say it myself "Job Well Done".

Now where’s the patio chair and Southern Comfort cocktails?
