patio slabs

Annette Hollywood asked 14 years ago

I have red and black patio slabs in my garden and they have faded to a very dirty colour even though they are well looked after . any suggestions on how to get the colour back ie paint ? also i have a wisteria 4 years and still no flowers.

It is very common for concrete paving slabs to fade as the dye used loses colour. Nothing much can be done.

Paints and sealants give a temporary effect but eventually fade or flake off themselves.

Wisteria can take several years to flower if growing well. Shorten unwanted whippy stems back to pencil-length in July.
