I really don't pressure wash anymore but did it back about 15 years ago. First off you really should not use a pressure washer on aluminum siding because it pings. You can get siding cleaners that work off a garden hose they take a bit more time but work ok. I would usually spray the plants down heavy with the hose before I started using the cleaner and sometimes
cover plants with plastic

I don't do this either, its my mother in-laws house, I started to use a small pressure washer, it didn't ping it, but it just wasn't getting it off either, I have to check for siding cleaners, thanks to about covering the plants and shrubs and watering them down,

Another thing on aluminum siding its not like vinyl the color goes all the way thru on aluminum the color is just on the surface if you wash it with high pressure you will probably have to paint it
