Guide to cleaning your patio

Tidying up structures and hard landscaping will let your plants sing without any distractions to the eye. 

There are plenty of jobs to get on with in the spring. A lick of paint to the shed, a coat of varnish to benches, a wash of the cloches and greenhouse panes, a debris pick up from the borders, even a judicious spot of pruning and tying in. 

      But one of the key jobs to address this spring are your paths, paving and patio areas. And like everything with gardening, timing is everything as doing it now will mean less work next year.
