You will likely be able to completely clean your garden slabs using nothing more than hot soapy water and a stiff brush. You want your paving to look immaculate before the snow and ice comes, and you even need to sweep away any autumn leaves.

Check your paving slabs for damage – You need to inspect all of your garden paving slabs for cracks and emerging gaps, filling in any that you come across. This is because if you leave them over winter they will likely grow larger due to snow and ice expansion. If you want to go even further to protect your slabs, invest in a high quality sealant.
