/, Maintenance and Repair Services/How to maintain your outdoor area

A thorough maintenance check and regular servicing can help you maintain the outdoor areas without hindering your bank and time.

  1. Hose down your gardens weekly to keep the gardens blooming or install sprinklers set to a timer to save time
  2. Stain timber every 6 months to maintain that fresh look
  3. Clean your sandpit of debris – Top up your sandpit every 6 months and make sure they remove
  4. Use a blower to clear the sand and any loose leaves daily
  5. Gardening – Schedule in regular gardening for weeding, hedge cutting, tree trimming
  6. Pressure wash regularly – Schedule in quarterly pressure washes to focus on different parts of your building like your building, timber decks, furniture and shade sails – find out what you can pressure clean here
  7. Track what needs to be fixed with a log and an audit list – If you add a priority matrix you can determine what needs to be fixed immediately and what can be scheduled in through the year. Complete a weekly and Monthly check of your “fix it list” then schedule in the trades you need in advance.  TIP: to get a better rate book your trades for more than one site visit, negotiate a year, two or three years to see whether you can get more value for money – get our free maintenance calendar here
  8. Top up bark every 6 months- it’s a pesky job when you have multiple elements like sand and bark and soil that tend to get tossed around the yard so make sure you schedule in a top-up at least twice a year. One small top-up will reduce the cost of a big one and ensure your property still looks great all year round.
