How Landscaping Affects Your Exterior House Paint

How Landscaping Affects Your Exterior House Paint

Did you know that your landscaping can affect the health of your home exterior, including the paint? It might not be a fact you think about much, but it is worth taking into consideration. If your exterior house paint (and the surfaces underneath) can last longer and avoid deterioration, there is every reason to give this aspect of landscaping some attention!

Here are a few ways your landscaping can be maintained to keep your exterior paint in great condition:

Give It Space

When a bush or tree is growing up against your home’s siding, it can cause several problems. One is that it restricts air movement and natural drying. This can lead to mildew and wood rot in some cases. Also, the plants may rub against the siding as they grow and with the movement of the wind, causing scratching and deterioration of the exterior paint.

Watch the Water

If you have an automatic watering system for your garden or yard, make sure it isn’t getting your house wet. While an occasional rain is fine here in the Oakland area, daily soaking is not good for anyone’s siding. Proper aiming avoids wasting water and keeps your house paint in good shape.

Clean Up What Falls

Some types of trees and bushes drop a lot of leaves and/or seeds throughout the year. If this piles up against your home, it can invite pests like mice and termites, and it also holds water, encouraging wood deterioration. To keep your home free from these troubles, make sure you pick up and dispose of fallen organic matter.
