Even in the summer, dead leaves, blossom, flower petals, or just good old dust can build up in doorways, steps, pathways and drives. So do an initial big sweep to clear any backlog, then a swift weekly brush-up should keep things looking great.

If you have a pathway or drive with a hard surface that has discoloured, use a pressure-washer to bring back the original finish and get it looking as near to new again.

Weeds between paving stones should be removed, but an exception to perfection might be moss growing between pavers: this can actually look deliberate and beautiful, so use your judgment (or send us a picture) for whether it should stay or go.

And while you’re there, check for any loose paving, cobbles or bricks (or for holes if you have a concrete path).
