Regular maintenance keeps your outdoor paver area looking nice. Cleaning, sealing and weed control are the main components of a paver maintenance plan.
The maintenance of pavers is a relatively simple task. Little or no maintenance is often needed depending on the type of pavers that have been used. In essence, different types will require different levels of maintenance. This is because certain pavers are more susceptible or resistant color fading, and for some pavers, removing grime and dirt is easy.
The beauty of concrete pavers is that even if they are stained, damaged or broken, they can be easily replaced with little or no fuss by simply removing the damaged paver and replacing it with a new one. Stains are often masked by the color of concrete pavers, however weeds in joints will need a pesticide or herbicide in order to maintain.
Although stone pavers are very durable and can last for decades, weeds can grow between their joints. This is best taken care of by using a sealant or pesticide to deal with the problem.
