REFRESH THE GARDEN PATH
While you have the pressure cleaner going, head for the path and driveways.
“A high-pressure hose strips back decades of grime and dirt, making old concrete driveways and paths look new again,” says Cherie from Renovating For Profit. “The difference can be startling and often it’s all you need to transform the street appeal of your property.”
Brad from Karcher (the pressure cleaner is pictured above) says the difference it makes won’t just be cosmetic.
“Mossy pathways can be slippery when wet, but they’re an easily managed safety hazard,” he says.
If you have any cracks in your pathway, consider concrete patching or, if you have a paved pathway make a trip to your local garden store to see if you can pick up some replacement pavers.
If the plants bordering your path or driveway have seen better days, spend a day replanting but steer clear of anything too tall that will inhibit movement along the path and restrict visibility.
Spiky plants are also a no-no along paths and driveways so stick with hardy ground covers with aromatic foliage.
Flowering plants offer spring appeal.
