Starting at the house and going with the grain or the length of the boards, sweep the deck with the pressurized water, overlapping as you go along to help prevent streaks. Raise the nozzle of the power washer several feet off the surface of the deck and maintain this height to prevent gouging the wood surfaces. This method is slower and requires more strokes as you clean the deck, but it does the job. Be sure to also clean the railings, posts and stairs.
Stir a little outdoor magic by designing a courtyard garden. These secluded spaces create a cozy ambience perfect for Sunday brunch, curling up with a book or catching a few z’s on a comfy lounge chair. A courtyard garden embodies a sense of separation from the world otuside. The result is a secret garden that often becomes everyone’s favorite spot.
If you have a deck made of plastic or composite materials, the deck can still benefit from a thorough cleaning at least once a year. Composite decks can still harbor mold and mildew because the material is made of wood fibers and plastic. A gentle power washing will help clean it up, but resist using a strong setting on the machine, as you'll likely cause the wood fibers to pill.
Container plantings work well around a pool. Pots filled with tropical plants can give you a tropical feel, but consider the maintenance they'll require. You have to be committed to watering every day and if you go away for a weekend then you’ll have to have someone water them.
