    It was absolutely covered in lichen being natural stone so new the way forward was hypo

    The actual working time was about 45 min
    The rest we set having a coffee and then rinsed

    What % mix was that bud?
    I usually use about 4% on patios and drives but you do get stubborn bits
    They come off easy with my little 6lpm karcher just on the lichen spots
