6 Landscaping Features That Could Use a Good Pressure Washing This Season
You may be used to hiring a power washing service for your driveway or patio, but with a bit of creative thought, you can use power washing for many other cleaning tasks as well. For example, landscaping and gardening accents and features can be an excellent target for power washing since they’re all in the elements.
In some cases, you may not even realize how much moss has accumulated on some of your garden elements and features.
Here are six landscape and garden features to include in the following power washing job you schedule.
Fountains can often accumulate a lot of algae, moss, lichen, and grime. They can even suffer from mineral buildups if you have hard water. Any of these situations can make your fountain less attractive and soothing. Since the aesthetic appeal is a large part of its purpose in life, consider restoring your fountain’s beauty with professional pressure washing.
Many garden statues, lawn gnomes, and similar landscape elements are easy to clean with a pressure washer. Concrete and stone statues could likely benefit from a good cleaning.
However, check for weathering damage before you decide to clean the statue. If the concrete is crumbling (or if water pressure is too high), your statue could lose face when cleaned aggressively. Hiring a power washing company that offers soft washing and knows the proper pressure to apply to all garden elements and features is vital to avoid damage.
Birdbaths are designed to hold water, making them another target for algae. But you don’t want to let algae accumulate; in addition to making the water less palatable, some types of algae can even be toxic. And standing still water is also a breeding area for those nasty tiny mosquitos as well. So instead of painstakingly scrubbing out your birdbaths each season, simply ask for bird bath cleaning with your next power washing job.
Garden Paths and Stepping Stones
Smaller versions of your driveway deserve to be cleaned just as much as your actual driveway. Whether they’re made of slate, stone, concrete, or rubber, your stepping stones or any solid garden path (as opposed to a gravel or bark path) can look much cleaner after an excellent pressure shower.
Whether it circles your garden to keep out rabbits or acts as a retaining wall to hold up a hill, a stone wall can be lovely and functional. But, of course, some homeowners may prefer a stone wall with a weathered, rustic appearance (with all the lichen intact). But if you like yours to have a fresher, cleaner and neater look, pressure washing could be just the solution you’re looking for.
Planter Garden Pots
You may not realize it, but cleaning garden pots the right way is essential to keeping the plant’s health intact and protecting the decking it sits on. Why not have your power washing company clean them while cleaning everything else in your backyard. You might not have thought of this; however, it’s a great idea as long as they offer soft washing services.
These are just some features you may find in your garden that could benefit from a judicious application of pressure washing.
