How to Keep Your Paving in Great Condition

How to Keep Your Paving in Great ConditionIn addition to providing top-notch fence repair and installation services, our team at Timber Fencing also offers paving services to help you create great patios and other outdoor living areas. Of course, these paved areas, like all structures, will require some care and maintenance to remain in good shape, so our team has put together this article on how to take care of your paving.

  • Sweep Regularly- The first thing you should do to keep your paving in great shape is keep it clean—we recommend sweeping your patio or pathway once a week. This gets rid of dirt and prevents it from building up on your pavers, and this in turn prevents weeds from taking root in between the pavers and damaging the structure as a whole.
  • Replace Damaged Pavers- Another thing you need to do to keep your paving in peak condition is replace any damaged or stained pavers. If there are some pavers in your driveway or patio that are cracked or discolored, we encourage you to give us a call—our team will remove the affected pavers and replace them with new ones to keep your whole structure in great shape and ensure it looks its best.
  • Get Rid of Weeds- As we mentioned above, weeds can do serious damage to your paving, so it’s important to get rid of them promptly, or better yet, take steps to prevent them from growing in the first place. One way you can do this is by treating your paving with a solution of water and vinegar, which will kill the weeds without harming your pets or putting your family at risk.
