Protecting natural surfaces such as wood, stone, terra cotta, etc. will enhance their inherent beauty as well as extend their lifespan. Especially in this region, the intensity of desert sun and very hard water wreaks havoc on pavers, planters, decks and fences. Natural materials are porous, which make them vulnerable to water absorption/swelling, staining, and for wood, susceptible to rot, algae and insect infestation. Additionally, photo-degradation, the deterioration of surfaces due to ultraviolet radiation exposure, is a real issue here.
