Care and Keeping of Flower Yard Art

Yard art is a practical way to add interest and whimsy to any property. The art is simple to install and works with nearly any style of decor. It is important to take care of the art each season so that it will last for as long as possible. Caring for and keeping flower yard art requires a few basic steps.

Be Careful Around the Piece

A very important step to take when caring for yard art is to be careful when around the piece. This means not placing the art in a location that is heavily trafficked. Watch what is happening to ensure that people do not run into or touch the piece on a regular basis. Try to keep pets away from the art. Keep garden waste, tools, and other debris out of the immediate area. A little bit of extra care will help to keep the yard art in good shape for a very long time.

Dust the Piece Regularly

Any piece of yard art that is exposed to the elements every day is going to start collecting dust on the surface. Something to remember is that dust or dirt can be acidic. It has the potential to start corroding the metal over time. This can lead to faded colors or even holes in the artwork. The solution is to dust the flower yard art regularly. Use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe down the surface. A little water or some mild detergent can help to bring back the shine and remove everything. Do this once every two to four weeks depending on the conditions outside.

Keep Unwanted Plants Away

Plants are going to sprout up in the yard sometimes uncontrollably. It is important to keep unwanted plants away from the yard art. Plants like weeds or vines can actually damage the yard art slowly if given enough time. Plants can also attract pests that could harm the surface or leave marks on the paint. Keep an eye out for any plants that start growing near the art. If the plants are not intended to be there, then pull them up immediately. This preventative step will help to keep the yard art looking attractive far into the future.
