I usually clean the patio of all its winter dirt by Easter. This year I have been unbelievably LAZY and just got around to it on Memorial Day weekend. Although I did clean off the greenhouse pad, I’ve never completed the job by cleaning the patio and hauling the furniture out of storage. The furniture is still sitting in my storage unit. Maybe next weekend. Of course, that is what I’ve been saying since April.
I have a wrought iron table and chair set on the patio that stays there year round as it does not fold up for storage. This is an old set, at least 40 years, and I have replaced the seat cushions once. They are easily removed for cleaning. Here are the chair frames, sitting in the warm sun on the greenhouse pad to dry:
After I got the chairs cleaned, then it was the big job of getting all the dirt off of the patio. It’s a big patio, much like cleaning another room of the house. Here’s the finished product:
It won’t stay clean for long. The neighbor cats enjoy living here and actually spend more time on the patio than any of our family.
