As we approach spring and summer, it really needs to be all systems go for getting the garden ready for barbecues, parties, and general relaxing once the weather gets warmer. That means attending to the weeding and planting but there are also several cleaning jobs you can do that will make a huge difference to how your garden looks.
Here are some must-have products that will get your outdoor space up to scratch and ready for spending time in over the next few months.
Hard surface cleaners
Drives, paths, patios, and decking take the worst of the bad weather and environmental contaminants, leaving them looking dirty and neglected. These are often the areas where we place our garden furniture and barbecues so they are a focal point and can really let the whole garden down if they look scruffy. You will probably find that standard cleaning products don’t make much of an improvement and that’s because some of those contaminants just can’t be cleaned away, even with harsh chemicals like bleach (that could actually be detrimental to some surfaces).
If you have green mould and algae marring your hard surfaces, use a Green Mould and Algae Remover (as the name suggests, it’s specifically formulated for this job!) and if you have black lichen (usually characterised by its black ink spatter-like appearance) then this definitely can’t be removed by anything other than a Black Spot Remover due to the nature of the organism. These products will both give the area a good clean as well as eradicate these specific blights and leave them looking like new again.

In many gardens, the lawn occupies the largest proportion of the space, so it has the potential to make the garden look amazing or achieve the exact opposite. The key to a great looking lawn is to create strong grass as this is better equipped to resist disease and pests, grow thick and lush, and be more hard-wearing for the increased usage it gets over the summer months. Healthy grass is also greener grass and that’s the look you want for your garden. Apply iron sulphate every 6-8 weeks over the summer to create the kind of lawn the neighbours will envy!

Artificial grass cleaner
If you have opted for artificial grass rather than a regular lawn, it may be low maintenance, but it could still benefit from a clean periodically, especially if you have pets that toilet on it. An artificial grass cleaner will remove all the nasties such as bacteria and bad odours, disinfect it, make it look cleaner and fresher, and even make it smell like real grass or lavender (choose from 3 different fragrances). While it may have looked fine before, you’ll be amazed at the difference once you’ve done it.

Now, your roof may not immediately spring to mind when you think of things you need to be cleaning but it does accumulate mould, lichen, algae and all manner of things over time. These will all mar its appearance. A roof cleaner will remove all these contaminants and takes just an hour to work, leaving it looking like new. Don’t fancy climbing up onto the roof of the house? This product can also be used on other roofs that are more accessible such as extensions, garages, sheds, and summer houses. You can even use it on a dog kennel roof! It is safe to use on any roofing material and will make a big difference to these areas, which are much more visible from the garden.
