not really a garden question, but does anybody know what I can revive my patio with it is block paving in the red colour and its faded terribly, B and Q do not have any answers for me



I think most of the cement paving fades after a while - personally I prefer the faded look to the original.

I agree with MG. If you have to 'revive' it you could use some floor paint in a shade of your choosing, but I reckon it would look phony and something between pretty and horrible - pretty horrible.

If its in full sun, and/or you use cleaning products on it, it will fade over time. More usually, the cheaper red coloured square slabs are worse for this, never known block paving to fade badly myself. Nothing you can do about it other than repave the area.

You could try a paving sealer that leaves a gloss finish ,this leaves the pavers looking as if they are wet and more colourfull.
