If you live in Glenwood, you might need a new patio as time passes. Winter snows and spring rains can wear down your patio until it is both unsteady and no longer as beautiful as it used to be. Luckily, the experts at Rhine Landscaping can remedy this situation for you. When you rely on our patio installation services, you’ll find that we only use the highest-quality materials possible. Keep reading to learn more!
Materials We Use
As we’ve mentioned before, some of the materials we use include natural stone, concrete, and brick. Another typical material used to build a new patio is pavers, which are usually fabricated before they are installed. However, no matter which type of patio material you choose, your new patio will need periodic maintenance after we have installed it for you. Although Glenwood homeowners can depend on Rhine Landscaping experts to lend their assistance, there are some basic techniques you can do on your own to help keep your new patio looking as beautiful as the day it was first designed, constructed, and added to your home.
How to Take Care of Your New Patio
The winter seems to be ending, but in a few weeks, we’ll see what the groundhog has to say about that. In any case, you’ll still need to take care of your patio. Getting your patio installed during the winter may seem counterintuitive, but as it turns out, it can save you plenty of time, money, and frustration. Let’s take a closer look at what you can do to ensure your Glenwood patio still looks like once spring and summer are back.
Pulling Weeds: Although many other forms of plant life will still be dormant, you might see weeds. Whenever you find weeds popping up, you’ll have to get rid of them as soon as you can. Otherwise, they might take all of the nutrients your other plants will desperately need and ev3en begin to shift the patio out of position if left untamed for too long. You will need a knife or other bladed tool to cut away the weed from the roots. If you don’t do this, the weeds will just grow back.
Cleaning the Surface: Don’t forget to clean off the surface. Any accumulated ice or snow could contribute to your patio looking less than beautiful. A broom and some soap should be all you need after hosing down the patio. If you see any moss growth or unexplained stains, some slightly-diluted bleach should do the trick in getting rid of it.
Adding Sealant: Although the bricks, stones, and concrete we use in our patio installation services aren’t high-maintenance materials, sealing them against moisture damage is still a smart idea. If the concrete you have chosen to use is stamped or otherwise decorated, this process becomes even more critical. Plus, you’ll to wait until the weather consistently remains in the upper 50s to low 60s before any sealants can be at their most effective.
