Sweep, Weed and Seal
If your patio has been left to its own devices over the colder months, you probably have some cleanup to do. Start with the basics like sweeping and getting rid of any weeds that may have sprouted in or near your patio. If you finish this basic prep and find that your patio is looking a little worn, it's time to take action. You want to prevent cracks and wear as much as possible when dealing with stone or concrete, so this is a good opportunity to seal and improve your patio. Remember that sealants can take some time to fully set, so don't seal right before you are planning a patio party.
