    Best not to use a turbo or rotory as if not careful can rip it up. I would suggest using a wide angle nozzle with an even height and strokes going up and down the length of the boards.

    25 degree which if you check should be green in colour. You could also try a 40 degree tip that should be white in colour

    was just wandering if you might have over spray into the pond.

    Are you treating/painting it too?
