    it looks a total mess peter and not only that whoever the cowboy was that laid it the sub base looks fooked too as the pavers are all over the shop.

    Myself I would not want to put my name to that job at all as needs digging out and sub base done properly. Then a completly new surface laid be it blocks or whatever they want instead.

    But just my thoughts you understand

    Would a pressure washer not bring it off? I took a few bits off at the weekend off father in laws patio testing new pressure washer, not seen it though so dunno how bad it is.
