Additional Paver Care

When you choose to have your pavers professionally cleaned and sealed by Miller Landscape, you will also have the option of having our crews replace your existing joint sand with Polymeric Joint Sand.  This is an advanced sand product that locks in place because it is a special mixture of calibrated natural sand and flexible binders that stays within joints better than any other type of sand. 

Polymeric Joint Sand:

  • Resists erosion

  • Inhibits weed growth

  • Deters ants and other insects

  • Stabilizes pavers

  • Is perfect for repairing both narrow and wide joints 

In terms of maintaining your pavers yourself, we offer the following tips.

Oil stains will not damage your pavers, but they can prove difficult to remove. Treat them as soon as possible by wiping the excess oil from the surface and washing them with a mild detergent and hot water. With stubborn stains you may need to do this several times. In a case where you simply cannot get a paver clean, replacing it may be the best solution. Pavers are made to be removed easily in just such a case. Again, sealing your pavers can also assist in managing stains. 

Sometimes, weeds will appear in the joints of your pavers. Unfortunately, there is no way to completely eliminate this from happening. There are, however, a couple of preventative measures you can take.  Sealing your pavers and the use of Polymeric Joint Sand are the easiest solutions for keeping weeds at bay. The use of an herbicide such as Roundup® applied directly to the joints can also significantly decrease the amount of weeds that grow and will not stain or harm your pavers

We would also be happy to do any paver repairs you may need done.  Perhaps you have an area that has settled [with the help of chipmunks!] or a step that has loosened over time?  Give us a call and we will be happy to provide a proposal for “touching up” and protecting your paver investment.
