Fall. It is the best time of the year. With the leaves start to turn and the air getting crisp, there is so much to look forward to this time of year. But with all of the perks that come with autumn, now is also the time to start thinking about fall maintenance for all your hardscaping features. At Hardscape Restoration, we want to supply you with some things to keep an eye out before winter hits.
Clean and Seal Pavers
Over time, dirt, debris, and moss can accumulate on your pavers, making them unsightly and even slippery. The fall is a great time to clean your pavers and apply a sealant to protect them from the elements. Use a pressure washer or a stiff-bristled broom to remove any dirt or debris. Then, apply a sealant to your pavers according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Inspect Retaining Walls
Retaining walls play an important role in preventing erosion and keeping your landscape looking neat and tidy. Take the time to inspect your retaining walls for any signs of damage or wear. Look for cracks, bulges, or other signs of stress. If you notice any issues, it’s best to address them sooner rather than later to prevent further damage.
Check Fire Pits
Fall is the perfect season for cozy nights around the fire pit. Before you start roasting marshmallows, take the time to inspect your fire pit for any damage or wear. Look for cracks or other signs of wear and tear. Make sure the fire pit is clean and free of debris before starting a fire.
Trim Trees and Shrubs
As the leaves start to fall, it’s a great time to trim any overgrown trees or shrubs that may be encroaching on your hardscaping features. This will not only make your yard look neater, but it will also help prevent damage to your hardscaping features from falling branches or leaves.
By taking the time to perform fall maintenance on your hardscaping features, you can ensure that they stay in great shape for years to come. Or, choose Hardscape Restoration to get the job done for you! Not only will this save you money on costly repairs, but it will also help you enjoy your outdoor living space to the fullest.
