Massachusetts Hardscape: 4 Maintenance Tips for Fall 

Whether you just installed new hardscapes this summer or are preparing to get them ready for the fall and winter seasons ahead, protecting your hardscapes through the elements is crucial. That’s why this month at MAX13 Construction, we’re giving you four maintenance tips for your Massachusetts hardscape come fall!

Clear the Debris

The first step in preparing your hardscape for fall and winter is to remove any accumulated debris over the summer months. Clear away fallen leaves, branches, and dirt from your patios, pathways, and stone features. This prevents stains, mold growth, and slip hazards, ensuring a clean foundation for the upcoming maintenance tasks.

Power Washing and Stain Removal

Give your hardscape surfaces a thorough cleaning using a power washer. Power washing helps eliminate built-up dirt, grime, and even mildew that can tarnish the appearance of your hardscape. Be cautious with the pressure setting to avoid damaging delicate surfaces. Additionally, address any stains, such as those caused by oil or rust, using appropriate cleaning solutions or techniques recommended by professionals.

Enhance the Durability

Sealing your hardscape elements is a crucial step in order to protect them from the harsh fall and winter seasons. Choose a high-quality sealer that is suitable for the type of material your hardscape is made of, whether it’s concrete, natural stone, or pavers. Sealing creates a barrier that prevents water penetration, reducing the risk of cracks, spalling, and freeze-thaw damage. Apply the sealer according to the manufacturer’s instructions, ensuring even coverage. 

Store and Cover Furniture Decor

If you have outdoor furniture, cushions, or decor items, decide whether to store them indoors for the winter or invest in weather-resistant covers. Storing items indoors prevents exposure to harsh weather conditions, prolonging their lifespan. If you choose to use covers, ensure they’re properly secured to prevent moisture buildup underneath.
