How to Protect Landscaping During Exterior Paint Jobs

Many homeowners tend to delay exterior painting projects because they fear that this project could damage their home’s landscaping. It goes without saying that paint is harmful for your plants. Fortunately, there are ways to execute an excellent exterior paint job without tarnishing your home’s greenery. In this post, Handyman Connection® of Orange County shares a few tips on how you can protect your landscaping during exterior paint jobs.

Cover Your Plants

Just like protecting your furniture during an interior paint job, you can take the same approach for your greeneries. Proceed by covering your plants using a light drop cloth, plastic sheathing, or trash bags to protect them from dripping paint or overspray. Make sure that you avoid using heavy tarps since this can damage your landscaping.

Don’t forget to remove the protective covers during the evening to allow your plants to breathe and allow them to enjoy a healthy dose of sunlight during the morning to maintain their vibrance. You can also water them more frequently to prevent paint from sticking to them.

Communicate With Your Painter

Skilled painters don’t need to be reminded to protect your plants as this is part of their responsibility, but it’s a good idea to talk about it with them to let them know you’re mindful about your landscaping. In fact, they could share some of their own tips and tricks to keep your plants protected during the project. Take this time to ask them pertinent questions to put your mind at ease for future projects. This gives you greater confidence moving forward, whenever you have exterior painting or remodeling projects that could involve your landscaping getting tarnished.
