Upgrade Your Landscaping With ArmorThane
Everyone knows that stunning landscaping adds to the appeal and value of both commercial and residential properties. However, it’s not just about a well-kept lawn and planting colorful flowers. Many landscape projects include dazzling water gardens, stone structures, and beautiful bridges. All of these landscaping features can be captivating, but, they also need the protection that polyurea can offer.
Because water features such as fountains and koi ponds’ main purpose are to hold water, you already know you will have many issues. Water gardens are often made of stone or concrete, and unfortunately, neither substance is waterproof. As a result, it’s not unusual for koi ponds or fountains to crack and crumble. To prevent catastrophe, you must treat the water garden with the proper coating.
It would help if you first understood the significance of polyurea. By definition, a polyurea solution comprises various types of polymers. The benefit of polyurea is that it is flexible and adaptable. It can expand and contract depending on the temperature. At the same time, it is strong and adds a protective sealant to different surfaces. Polyurea coatings form a waterproof outer shell! This not only means correcting cracks but avoiding them before they begin.
Other Water-Related Coatings
Many times landscaping includes wood decks. It’s frustrating to continually have to refinish in order to prevent discoloration or wood rot. Click here for an article that specifically addresses these wood deck problems and watch a video that shows how well these coatings stand up, even against steel rotary barbs.

Eliminate Leaks and Drips
Don’t waste water by allowing it to seep through cracks and fissures. Using a liner eliminates the places for water to penetrate or escape. Custom spray-on liners fit everything from the smallest residential water feature to large industrial chutes and sluice gates. Watermills run better and fountains look their fullest when the water they were designed to use gets to them.
There are a few reasons it is crucial to protect landscaping projects with polyurea. Here are some that immediately come to mind:
- Please maintain the integrity of the structure so it does not deteriorate.
- Preserve the grandeur of created art structures, such as fountains or koi ponds
- Protect fish that rely on pond water for survival
- Eradicate leaks and water seepage
