Pressure washing cleanly

rentonsaJune 10, 2013

Hi folks, i don't think i submitted this earlier, but apologies if it appears twice.
Really stupid question from a newcomer: i have a karcher pressure washer, and, even when washing my path in a systematic order, unedged lawns and beds result in vast amounts of excess muddy water. Brushing this away just results in the slabs getting dirty again, leaving it results in dried in mud! Could anyone advise a foolproof solution? Something to suck up the water perhaps?!

Have you tried to use a surface cleaner instead ? You will find with one of those you will have a lot less splashing.

Also you could try using a garden fork to force holes all along the area where you plan on pressure cleaning to help drain the water down into the soil

Thanks Gav- I see Karcher do a surface cleaner attachment which sounds ideal. I'll also try the fork suggestion.

The surface washer will probably be the best solution as you will have no splash back and the excess waster should just roll out from under the cleaner and flow down to the lowest part of your garden.
