Stamped concrete near mulburry tree


Hello, I'm having a stamped patio done in my backyard. I have a mulberry tree In my yard that will hang over quite a but of this stamped concrete. My concern is that this will stain our new patio. But I'm hoping that the sealer for the stamped concrete might help prevent the stain or make it easier to wash off?? Any thoughts? I'd rather keep the tree, but if its going to ruin my new patio then I will have to remove.

Thanks, Mike.

I've never found anything mulberries won't stain. Maybe your sealer will work for you.

Some trees can be neutered with a spring spray. Olives, for example, used to a popular landscape tree in Northern California but when the olives fell? What a stink. I do not know about Mulberries but you might check with your arborist or ag extension folks. They may have ideas about removing the stains or what sealers have proven effective too.

I hate hearing about taking out healthy trees.

iirc, we used ' goof-off ' on a thin-stamped pool apron but it also removed the sealer,,, wasn't a big deal to get the stains off but was very labor intensive,,, i LOVE add-on work almost as much as change orders r

The sealer will likely help repel some stains, and make it easier to clean, but I'd worry about the first few weeks after you pour it, and before it's sealed. Most acrylic deco. concrete sealers need the concrete to cure for 1-4 weeks before the sealer, so the stamped concrete is stains extremely easily at this point.......
