Want to give your garden an overhaul ready for the summer months? Start by adding a pressure washer to your shopping list.

Pressure washing or power washing is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles and concrete surfaces.

But when it comes to our gardens specifically, it means that we can thoroughly clean out the cracks in our paving, our wooden decking, the old garden furniture that’s been piled up in the shed and perhaps even our bikes.

In short, it can transform anything from weathered and worn to sparkling and new in moments - and it feels pretty satisfying to use too.

However, it is important to understand which pressure washer to use; we don’t need an industrial-sized version (nor could we carry it) and we’re also not cleaning experts (unless you’re reading this, Mrs Hinch) so we need a bit of guidance.

Luckily, those who have gone before us have done the hard work for us and, when it comes to home-use, have rated the Karcher K2 Full Control Home Pressure Washer from Argos five-stars.

The Karcher K2 Full Control comes with a vario lance which includes 4 pre-defined settings with usage iconography showing which pressure should be used where.

Plus, the retractable handle makes it easy to transport the product around the garden as well as when the product needs to be stored.

Unsurprisingly, garden-owners up and down the country have praised the product’s washing abilities.

“Very light and easy to use. It did a great job on my patio,” wrote one while customer.

While another added: “Well worth the extra money compared to various other models. Comparing it to my previous pressure washer, there is no comparison. It was perfect for cleaning my patio.”

It’s time to give our patios a little TLC.
