Washing and Staining a Cedar Fence

Washing and staining your cedar fence can add a modern look and style to your yard or garden. When using the tools to wash and stain your cedar fence, work with care to avoid damaging the cedar. Staining your cedar fence will help increase the longevity of the fence, by sealing the wood, and trapping the natural oils within the surface of the fence material.

Remove any large plants that are situated near the cedar fence. Pull out any tall weeds that are growing near the fence. This will help you in clearing the area for washing your cedar fence.

Keep handy your power washer. You will need to hook up the washer to a hose. Then press the power button. Stand about one and a half feet away from the fence and spray the water evenly in an up-and-down fashion. After some time, when that section of the fence has been fully washed, stop washing that section of the fence and move on to the next section. Allow the fence to dry completely, before moving on to the next step.

Next, apply a layer of paint roller using a color of your choice, and roll on a layer onto the entire fence. Allow the wood to soak in the layer of paint and let it dry. Then, apply another layer of stain by using the roller again.

Let the fence completely dry for 24 hours before lining up anything against it.
