All hands on deck

Projects from Your Weekend magazine

Tool belle Rose Hughes shows how to get your prime outdoor area ready for those long, hot days of summer.

Getting your deck ready for summer

Summer is fast approaching and lazy days on the deck are no longer just fantasy. But how is that deck looking after winter? Moss, lichen and mildew are common and can be easily fixed. For today’s project, our neighbours kindly volunteered their deck, which is frequently used throughout the year. This kwila deck is about 20 years old and was badly affected by moss, mildew and lichen. Also, the boards were installed too closely together, which has contributed to the problem.

You will need


Take care

  • Do not allow these products to come into contact with plants, stormwater outlets, streams or animals. They could kill aquatic life if allowed to enter the stormwater system. Divert all runoff to a sewer or alternative catchment system.
  • If these products come into contact with plants, wash them with lots of fresh water as soon as possible.
  • Wear adequate protection.
  • Don’t mix these products with any other product.
  • Rinse deck wash thoroughly off glass because it could etch the surface – and don’t store this product in a metal or rubber container.
