The Red solid brick fence was core filled with concrete, hence a lot of effervescence and Vanadium staining as seen on right hand photo.We trialled some low number ratio’s nearly a 1.5:1 achieving a one wash and one spot finish.Using GAR is ideal for a sensitive plant environment job. Recommendation to seal with GuardIT Dense breathable sealer to the Caps
