 Stone floor

Your questions answered!

What are black spots?The patio black spots that grow on your garden stonework are actually spots of Black Lichen! The spores from the Black Lichen start life as tiny dust-like spores growing on the underside of leaves on trees and plants. These spores are carried, by the wind and the rain, onto your stonework in their millions. Once they have landed the spores have a 2 year germination period which means, for the first 2 years of having the patio laid it would of still looked really clean without a spot in sight! However on the third year the colour in the stone would dull and it would look like someone has flicked ink across your stonework leaving tiny ink splatters. The reason why they grow on your garden stonework is because they feed off the minerals within the stone. Once they have exhausted an area of the stone of all the minerals they grow in search of more, not only across the stone (which gives it its spot like appearance), but also down into the stone effectively rooting itself down into the pores of the stone growing at about 2mm a year.

Encouraged by warm, damp conditions, these unsightly spots will only get worse if left untreated, ruining the original beauty of your garden stonework.
