Pressure Washing

Pressure Washing services and jet washing for drives, patios and buildings in Newport, Cardiff and Chepstow.

Our services also include 'soft washing' which is the application of solutions that gently remove algae, lichen and blackspot.

These can be 'hardwashed' or what is referred to as pressure washing or jet washing which gives an immediate effect of being clean. The difference between both methods is, hardwashing usually includes chemicals that are denser than water and are washed away on rinsing, whereas softwasing has chemicals that are not as dense as water and NOT rinsed away.

These biocides find their way into small capillaries that kill the spores and stop them from returning for some considerable time.

Both methods have their values, however, for delicate surfaces such as stone that wouldn't benefit from harsh cleaning, are left to 'self clean' over a longer period and remain that way without having to access repeatedly.

Both have their merits and if you'd like advice on the best method for you, then please contact us for a free survey and quotation.

Below is a picture of 'pressure washing' producing an immediate solution.

This picture shows how 'softwashing' on more delicate surfaces will clean over a period of time without jet washing.

Soft washing

Soft Wash is a safe and effective way to clean exterior surfaces such as K Rend which is not a hard surface, also block paving where you don't want to disturb the sand joints and then having to refill them, the same goes for decorative stonework which has to be treated carefully. In fact most exterior surfaces would benefit from this method and in particular cleaning roofs full of moss and algae that has to be removed, where copious amount of water should be avoided.

it's an ideal way of cleaning, albeit over a more extended time than immediate pressure washing.

Hot pressure washing

Pressure washing using hot water is another method we prefer which produces amazing results, where it cleans and takes away all the germs and bacteria that cold water jet washing doesn't.

Warm jet washing is useful on decking, fencing and all other hard surfaces where reducing the amount of water is of benefit. One surface in particular is composite decking, that although being resilient to decay, still has dirt and algae settling on it.

Using warm water and in certain cases reaching over 100 degrees and steam, releases more dirt and leaves the composite material cleaner for longer, even more so when long term safe biocides are applied to give extended protection.

Play areas

Play areas are a prime candidate for the use of hot pressure washing where not only is it important to clean the surfaces, but also to effectively remove the harmful bacteria that forms over a period of time.

There are numerous areas around the home where pressure washing is of great benefit such as:

  • Roofs
  • Walls
  • Driveways
  • Block paving
  • Resin drives
  • Patterned concrete
  • Decking
  • Fencing
  • Concrete

And numerous Commercial situations such as:

  • Car parks
  • Steel cladding
  • Historic buildings
  • Pavements
  • Buildings

The list is endless and cleaning isn't the end of the process as we can also provide long life sealants from PICS UK, Resiblock, Benz, Azpects, EverBuild and many other providers that we use on a daily basis.

A note from Mike
The kitchen design was 'stunning' and I was fortunate enough to be called in to 'complement' the kitchen with my tiling.
I was made welcome by the customers and I would highly recommend Ikea Kitchens without hesitation.



Mike and his team (Luke, Terry and Mike) have just completed a major 4 week total overhaul of our garden.
Great design and implementation under very difficult circumstances.
So refreshing to find people that turn up when they say they will and exceed expectations in their delivery of the project.
Thoroughly recommended, just make sure you have some extra coffee in the house. :-)

Thanks Mike. Fab job.

Chris & Christine Hyde


Very many thanks for carrying out the work at Victoria Mews, Cardiff...

It all looks great in the pictures you sent us by email...
Thank you also for liaising with your electrician Simon Webb on my behalf, for the other work we needed at the house.

Richard and Dana Edwards


Mike is polite, professional and does what he says. Mike and his colleague worked really hard and built an amazing patio for us in Indian sandstone. It really transformed our garden. Highly recommend.

Thank you Mike, it makes such a huge difference to our lives. So happy.

Paula Headford


Mike & Alex have carried out various installations for us.

I would recommend Mike & Alex to anyone and will keep using them in the future.

Cheers Mike

When Mike first arrived for the quote he was very professional and punctual to the time given. He measured up and gave the quote as promised the next day. The work was undertaken and completed on time to a very high standard. Mike and Luke were conscientious and very professional and cleaned up at the end of the working day.

In conclusion I would recommend Newport landscaping,they provided excellent quality of work, professional and have already recommended them to family members.

Dear Mike and team,

Just to say how impressed we are with the speed and standard of your work, you have helped us towards achieving something a bit different in a modern house and have impressed all those who have seen your work.

Look forward to yet more excellent creations from you in the future.


Chris and Jude


Called around a good few places for my garden revamp. Some didn’t bother quoting, others just didn’t seem trustworthy. Mike, Luke and Mike all did the job really well in the timeframe they promised. Fit and finish seem excellent, they also took care to clear up afterwards. Recommended!
