When you need to paint your home exteriors, the plants outside could be affected if not protected beforehand. Before the professional painters arrive for the job, you can take steps to ensure your flower beds, shrubs and other greenery survive the new coat of paint.
Today, we highlight three ways you can protect your plants before the pros apply the first coat of paint on your siding.
1. Inspect the work area. Before the painting process begins, make sure to check the landscaping around the potential work area. Relocate potted plants as far away as possible. Doing so helps ensure that the painters have a clear path where they can move around and go about their work.
2. Do some gardening. While you wait out the next few days before the professional painters professionals arrive, take this opportunity to do a bit of gardening. Get rid of dead leaves, pull out weeds, cut off damaged parts, and clear branches or stems that may be blocking the pathways in your lawn or garden. Doing these helps ensure the safety of everyone who’ll be working on your home.
3. Cover your plants. Flower beds, shrubs and other greenery may be covered with plastic sheets to protect against spills and splatters. If you have tarps or drop cloths, use them for the grass and soil, and not for your more fragile and delicate plants. Make sure to water the ground before covering them to prevent plant dehydration.
