How to Clean Your Garden with a Pressure Washer

Pressure washers are excellent machines for cleaning any exterior that is dirt whether filled with grease or grime.

Types of Pressure Washers

The two primary types of pressure washers according to pressurewashertoday.com include:

  • Gas-powered pressure washers and
  • Electric pressure washers.

Gas-powered pressure washers are powerful and handy because you do not need to plug them (no need for electric plug and cord).

Electric pressure washers, on the other hand, are less costly and portable and have an engine with an on/off button.

All the two types of pressure washers are excellent when it comes to cleaning your garden.

But first, you will need to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your pressure washer.

Also, always ensure that the hose is not kinked and the connection is tight because loose connections can cause problems when under pressure.

Before turning the water on, ensure to remove any air that’s inside by pressing the trigger. Once you have removed the air inside, turn on the valve on your water spigot.

Remember, when you are using an electric pressure washer, you connect it to power.

For a gas-powered pressure washer, you will need to ensure the kettle is filled with gas.

How to Remove Mice

From the head of the scepter, choose a nozzle that is designed for the job at hand. The nozzle plays a huge role on the amount of linear force with which the water will be discharged from the machine, so choose your nozzle properly, especially if you have a big garden that requires water to be discharged under high pressure.

Every nozzle included must be accompanied by a manual that shows how to use it the proper way. Also, you will require different amounts of pressure for the cleaning and a force that is stronger than a garden hose.

Before you start pressure washing your garden, try the spray to see how it hits the target areas.

Start by making slow and deliberate passes over the washing area to see how it works first.

Check whether it’s cleaning properly. If it’s working properly start cleaning by moving the machine around until the whole area is cleaned.

NOTE: Always start with a lower pressure before you begin the actual cleaning of your garden to see how it works.

At times you may need to change nozzles before you begin cleaning. During the cleaning process, ensure you have your gardening gloves, especially when using harsh chemicals.

Usually, it’s advised not to hold the scepter head closer than 12 inches from the surface you are washing.

If the garden has plants, ensure to cover the plants to keep them protected from the force of the spray and, perhaps the detergents you are using.
