How to Maintain Your Outdoor Hardscaping

Generally, wet laid surfaces are low maintenance. Here a few things you can do to keep your hardscaping looking its best.

At least once a year you should scrub down surfaces with a mild bleach cleanser. We don’t recommend power washing because it can cause permanent damage that can void your warranty.

Any moss, mold, mildew, or algae stains can be removed with a solution like Wet & Forget. Never use metal shovels or tools to remove snow and ice.

If you’re using a snow blower, make sure you use rubber blades. Never use de-icers of any kind. They can cause permanent damage from pinning to cracking.

Quality hardscaping and masonry will include an endurable sealer, but staining caulker or from rusting metal and flower pots, grease from grill, food and drink or oil and gas.

Keep gutters, downspouts and drains clear because water can cause settlement and erosion, voiding your warranty.

As you can see, hardscaping and masonry don’t require a lot of maintenance, just a little bit of effort keeps it looking good for a long time.
