Seal the patio

Depending on the weather, condition of the patio, and materials, it may be a good idea to seal your patio to protect it from wear and tear that footfall, moisture, and UV rays may cause. Additionally, they could be easier to clean as the barrier they apply makes it more difficult for dirt and grime to stick. Before using a sealer, always consult a professional like our team at Earthscapes Garden – always read to help.


Clean up

While an obvious task after the remodel, many owners don’t do a thorough enough job and accidentally overlook excess materials from the project and other smaller debris. Depending on what was left behind, they could cause damage to the patio or the surrounding environment. Always thoroughly check the area after the remodeling job has been completed. Additionally, do make sure to hose down or sweep the patio as required from time to time to keep it looking its best. Keep an eye on the area immediately surrounding the patio for debris that could scratch the deck and overgrowth that could crack the deck if it grew unchecked.



Should any plants be uprooted during the remodeling work, take this chance to replant them or install new ones, whichever your preference. Complementary plants can make your new patio pop, along with its other benefits, such as soil health, improved air quality, and more. Plants can be an excellent addition to any outdoor space with various colors and smells, so consider them a peripheral part of your patio remodeling project.

Watch out for pests

Pests like termites and ants can turn your brand-new patio into a crumbling mess if left unchecked for too long. Make sure you check for pests frequently and treat the area immediately should you find them taking root. You will have to do this fastidiously, as since they are so small, it is easy to overlook them, and when you finally spot them, it may be too late.


Maintain the furniture on your patio and in the garden

Should you have furniture outside, always make sure that it is tailor-made for use outdoors, or else the elements can damage it at an accelerated rate. Once you are sure your furniture is suitable for use outdoors, clean and protect it occasionally to prevent avoidable damage.


Check for damages

Periodically, make it a point to check for damage to your deck and ensure corrective action is taken to prevent minor issues from growing into expensive repairs. Often a quick patch job can prevent an extensive renovation from becoming necessary if the initial damage is identified early enough. Certain signs of wear, such as faded paint and stains, can be fixed relatively easily with a dash of paint and cleaning products. However, damages such as cracks and pitting of the patio should be addressed immediately to prevent them from worsening.


Maintain any landscaping

It can be tempting to laze around your new patio, content with the beautiful enhancement to your home. Yet it is just as essential to ensure your landscaping is maintained well, or else the shiny new patio will starkly contrast with your deteriorating garden. Further, an unkempt garden could potentially cause damage to the patio. Examples of this are overgrown plants that could push up against the surface, causing cracks to form, or the unruly garden encouraging the encroachment of termites. Our expert team at Earthscapes Garden can provide you with professional landscaping advice to maintain a beautiful garden. 



If scheduled in advance, these minor tasks can save you significantly more time and money in the future on repairs and renovations while also extending the life of your patio. Should you neglect your new deck and other outdoor spaces, they can fall into a state of disrepair in no time, so even if things look fine at a glance, periodically attend to these tasks.
