Landscape Gardening Tips

Landscape gardening has often been associated with the painting of a picture. Your art-work teacher has told you that a good picture should have a point of interest, and the rest of the points simply go to make the piece more beautiful. So in landscape gardening there must be a picture in the gardener’s mind of what he desires the whole to be.

Which Pressure Washer Nozzle Should You Use?

A Pressure Washer is a great way to clean all kinds of surfaces around your home: vinyl siding, stucco, concrete, stone walkways, brick, boats, cars and trucks, power equipment, garage floors, and more. If you have a pressure washer or are considering buying one, you’ve probably noticed that there are all kinds of pressure washer nozzles to choose from. Nozzles are color-coded to make it easy to choose the one that you need, and the colors are universal. But which pressure washer nozzle is right for which jobs?

Nozzles Explained

Pressure washers spray water in a V shape from the end of the wand. Each nozzle that you add to the end of the wand will spray water in a wider or narrower V, depending on what degree angle it is designed to spray at. For example, a 15° angle is a fairly narrow V, while a 40° is significantly wider.

With a narrower spray (a low-degree nozzle), you get more pressure in your spray, but it is spread over a small area. With a wider spray (a higher-degree nozzle) you get less pressure, but it covers more area. If you are purchasing nozzles for your pressure washer, be sure to get the correct nozzles for your machine. Refer to this handy pressure washer nozzle chart for guidance when choosing a nozzle for your next pressure washer project:

Turbo Nozzle

Pressure Washer Turbo Nozzle toolA rotating nozzle, also called a turbo nozzle, or rotary nozzle allows you to have the best of both worlds: pressure and coverage. The rotating nozzle gives you the extreme pressure of  a 0° nozzle with the wide coverage of a 25° nozzle. If you choose to use a rotating nozzle, be extra careful what surface you use it on. The pressure of a 0° spray can damage wood, siding, and some metals. For concrete, brick, and other very hard surfaces, though, the rotating nozzle is a great time-saver.
