Patio pavers are attractive to anyone designing an outdoor living space for many reasons. Patio pavers are becoming an extremely popular outdoor accessory due to the fact that they are affordable and if laid by professionals or even fairly competent bricklayers the result can look fantastic. The pavers for patio are installed over a pre-prepared compacted stone base that lies atop a stable flat bed of sand. Each stone is meticulously and carefully laid out in whichever pattern or design was agreed upon. To cleaning patio pavers, you can do it with two method. First method is to use herbicides, which is widely available in gardening and home improvement shops. Simply spray the herbicide over the weeds. They should wither within 48 hours. However, herbicides are poisonous and it should be kept away from reach of young children. A more human and environment friendly option is to prepare a mixture of vinegar and water. Alternatively, you could substitute vinegar with lemon juice too. Spray the solution over the weeds and it should kill them right away. This will keep your patio pavers free from weeds for a period of time.
Them, patio pavers should never have mortared joints. Mortaring between unit pavers is an outdated method that is losing favor to the more environmentally friendly technique of using porous materials such as sand or stone dust. It is recognized that using a porous material in between your patio pavers actually holds them together like glue if installed correctly, and the porous material allows for superior water drainage.
