There are many things you can clean with a pressure washer. Your patio, driveway, car and even your home can be cleaned by a pressure washer. If you’re not careful, your plants and shrubs could be damaged. There are some things you should do if you plan to use your pressure washer near plants.

Cover the Bottom of Your Roof

Avoid Using Harsh Chemicals

Pressure washing your home should not be done with harsh chemicals. They can cause damage to your plants and shrubs if they are inhaled. You don’t want to spray plants or shrubs accidentally.

Take a look at the Weather

Before you pressure wash, it is important to take into account the weather. You can pressure wash your plants and shrubs if it is windy or there aren’t any leaves. If it’s raining or snowing outside, pressure washer should be avoided as it could get wet and stop working properly.


You can also wet your plants before you use the pressure washer. This will keep the pressure washer’s water from causing any damage to your plants. You should not use too many water because this can wash away dirt and your plants will need it to survive.

Collect Gutter Runoff
