    Hope this is the right forum. Customer wants me to pressure wash sidewalks and driveways with a bleach solution. Will the bleach overspray kill the grass?

    When you pressure clean, your not constantly putting bleach on to the concrete. You first lighty spray it down using the chemical injector tip (the black one). After letting the bleach do its work you then put a different tip and commence pressure cleaning using straight water. You should be able to put the bleach down with out getting any significant amount on the grass if you're careful.

    Spray the grass down with water before spraying the bleach.

    I clean out my jet ski's with bleach, very strongly concentrated, and it gets dumped on the lawn, and I have never had any yellowing or dead grass as a result. So I would say dont worry about it.
