Rowan said: “The time required between each reseal is dependent on several factors, such as foot traffic, and the severity of the weather. If you leave them unsealed, debris like moss and algae can enter the stones and cause complications.”

Careful maintenance

It is easy to neglect your garden in the winter when the weather is cold and uninviting, but it is important to take time to clear frost and snow if, and when it comes.

Though white Christmases are very rare in the UK, they are not impossible, so it is a good idea to invest in a shovel for your patio. Rowan recommended plastic models as they are “less likely to crack your paving stones”, meaning you can shovel snow “without fear of damage”.

When it comes to de-icing frosty patios, the paving expert warned against using rock salt which is corrosive by nature.
