Cleaning patio

I assaulted our paved area at work with nothing more than a bucket of water and a stiff brush and it cleared it nicely.

Be careful with them though, I've been looking at them on and off for a year or two and the quality is amazingly variable from thick and expensive to cheap and made of tinfoil!

Domestic pets really, not farm or horses.

There are loads of nurses on here, I seem to be the only doggy doctor.

Doggy not dodgy!

I'd like to point out that I'm not the skilled stonemason, it's the person that I quoted from that is!

Some photos of our job.

 This is the Baring Gould monuments before and after


Here is a marble one, (My speciality)


I am past retirement age but still do the odd few, it is a bit of a labour of love!. especially the marble ones where you have to be so careful because the stone is very soft, I use a toothbrush, toothpicks, anything tiny to get into the little creases around the flowers, takes several days to complete.

The best part about it is that I can sit in a churchyard, completely alone and peaceful, not many can do that in their workplace.

Why, thank you!

So now I'm going to be passive aggressively abused for posting a reasonable statement. That makes me feel very welcome.

I fail to see why I upset you, I started my post with 'well done' and merely questioned why it was posted to a gardening forum. Hardly rage inducing.

Well done but unless his exams were on pruning, not terribly relevant for this forum...

More for the book of the face really.
