If you see that there are some gutters, pavings, brick or vinyl sidings, etc. that clearly need washing, you can make this work a lot easier by using a power washer. Do not worry if you do not have such a specialist tool – you can easily find a company where you can rent it at a reasonable price.
While using it on your walkways, bear in mind to take a look if there are any broken or cracked paving stones. If that is the case, remove them and place new ones because it will significantly help you to improve its overall appearance.
What is more, make sure to clean all the water features, birdbaths, or small ponds, if you have any. After all, they have been added to improve your garden’s design, and with any lichens and stains starting to sprout, they are doing quite the opposite.
When you are walking with the power washer around your home, take a few minutes to have a look at your exterior light fixtures. You should clean them from all dead bugs, and in case any of them has burnt out, replace the bulb. With proper lighting, your garden will look better also when the sun goes down.
