After a dismal and wet winter in Gravesend, the garden is likely to be a bit too muddy to do much, therefore laying a nice new patio is the obvious solution to this. If you've already got a patio but its starting to get wonky and overgrown with weeds you might be thinking about having a new one laid down or perhaps taking up and re-laying the old one if the paving slabs are still okay.
