How To Prepare Your Patio For Summer


The weather is getting warmer and before we know it, it will be summer! To make sure you can make the most of your patio, it’s a good idea to get it prepared. Here’s our step-by-step guide to help you prepare your patio for summer.

Clean Your Patio

Winter can be harsh, especially on your patio. Chances are, there’s going to be moss, debris and dirt that’s built up over the cooler months. Give it a good sweep to begin with, collecting any rubbish as you go. Once the majority of the dirt is gone, you may want to give it a rinse with a hose or pressure washer to loosen any additional bits and pieces.

Finally, you can scrub your patio with some hot, soapy water to get it looking clean and bright. Some standard washing up liquid should do the job, but specialist cleaners are available. If you’re using something new to clean your patio, be sure to test it on a small area first to check if it stains.

Get Some Garden Furniture Out

A patio is best enjoyed with garden furniture. Prepare your patio for summer by putting out some chairs and tables, ready for you to relax in the sun. If you plan to use your barbecue, now is a great time to set up an area for this. Consider the layout and ensure you have enough seating, especially if you plan to host some garden parties. Additional seating can be stacked up in a corner or stored in an easily accessible place like a shed.


If you’re outside and enjoying your patio, you’ll want to ensure your surroundings are beautiful. Pay some extra attention to your landscaping. Mowing the grass, planting a few flowers and adding some planters wouldn’t go amiss. If your garden is in a bit of a sorry state, a professional landscaping company like BBS Specialists can help you to bring it back to life.
