How would it feel, for example, to have a barbecue on your new wooden or stone patio? A trend can be seen here in any case – more and more people want to beautify their garden and upgrade it with high-quality garden furniture and patios. This makes the garden comfortable and cosy.

Of course the same also goes for garden furniture, which you should ideally clean of surface dirt with warm water and a multi-purpose cleaner or cleaning agent. Alternatively, you can also resort to a medium-pressure or high-pressure cleaner.
