Installing pavers results in spaces between the bricks or stones. The first step in preventing weeds is ensuring proper installation. A sand bed tightly packed provides a level foundation for the deck or patio. Once all the pavers are in place, additional sands should be packed into the crevices. This sand ensures each paver stays in place and helps prevent weed growth.
Prevention is one of the best methods of weed control. With a little regular maintenance, weeds can be avoided in the first place.
Preventing Weed Growth
A deck or patio crafted of pavers is sure to have lines between each stone. Without proper prevention, weeds can find their way through those joints, reducing the appearance and potentially causing damage to the entire floor. With a few preventative measures, weeds can be avoided in the first place. If weeds are already present, there’s no need to stress. Corrective measures can eliminate the weeds and restore the look of your driveway, deck, or patio.
