We have 2 much of my husbands 'junk' on our verandah because we don't have space to put a shed, & there are a LOT of leaves, but it's only swept once every year or so around the junk! I do sweep the front walkway when it gets very leafy, & just before I'm about to wash my hair!
I have been known to give it a quick vacuum around the door area. To be honest, it's so danged windy here that I hardly have to do anything. However, it will be sweeping season soon as my neighbour has an enormous golden rain tree and the flowers, leaves, seeds and pods are the curse of the earth. It's a rental and I don't think the landlord gives a tinker's curse how it affects anyone else.
ALL of the above.
I'm a clean freak.
That is one area, that is very important to keep clean, my Mother said it reflects, what your home is like inside.
That was drummed into me, and I guess true enough :)
Blower vac it - much more efficient than any of the above options. Have to say though, I would hose it down if I could. But, MIL bought a wooden outdoor setting which is as heavy as King Kong, so I can't move it or hose it without potentially damaging it. >.<
