HELP sprucing up a tired old patio

Posted: 26/06/2015 at 19:49

If the slabs are in good condition, why not relay them 'properly' . A quick google will show you the technique... Layer of compacted hardcore, mortar, slabs etc. Especially if it is a shady spot you will be able to pressure wash the lichen and moss off unlike gravel. Also a properly laid patio is quite lovely

Thankyou fidget. Im not sure of my opinion of them, they seem to thrive here and are quite pretty close up but remind me of a weed

Its nice when you get a plant that you 'didn't really care about' and it grows really well, it sort of grows on you so to speak. Yes please do post a pic BB. I brought my box plant last year, it's around 40-50 cm plant but no shape to it so wasn't sure wether to let it grow large then shape or 'train' it into a ball and make it grow into an even bigger ball next year and so on. And yes they're so expensive! but I suppose the time it takes to create such a size is grounds to charge so much 'time is money'.
