Sorting out the patio

Our patio is in a pretty sorry state at the moment and I'm keen to try and make it look as good as I can.

I have begun to rake out the old pointing as it's in a poor way.

The slabs are very dirty and need to be cleaned. Is it best to clean these before or after repointing? I am worried about repointing and then blowing it out with a pressure washer.

Is a pressure washer the best option for cleaning?

Any help or suggestions gratefully received!

clean it before, your concerns are valid.

Pressure washer for the majority of the grime then a dose of bleach for the remaining lichen spots.
