Spring Cleaning - The Dirty Deck

I finally got up the motivation to start the inevitable spring cleaning around the yard.  I don't like the maintenance, it is not fun, but it is necessary.

I started with cleaning the deck a couple of weeks ago with a pressure washer.  I soon found out that a pressure washer alone was not going to do the trick.  I went to Lowes and bought deck cleaner, sprayed it on, waited 10 minutes, and the dirt and grime came off much easier.

Below are before and after pictures and the deck cleaner I used.

Good stuff!  Made my job much easier.
