What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Weed between and clean paversPaved areas take a lot of foot traffic and can collect dirt and grime, not to mention mould, mildew and moss. The great news is that cleaning them is an easy job that doesn’t have to be undertaken more than a couple of times a year, if you do the job properly.Start by removing any weeds growing up between the pavers, then hose down the pavers to loosen dirt and grime. Saturate any surrounding lawn or garden and then, using a stiff broom or brush, apply a 10:1 solution of water to liquid pool chlorine to the pavers and scrub them down. Leave the solution to do its work for about 20 minutes, then hose away the residue. Finally, apply some weed killer between the pavers to prevent regrowth.TIP: It’s important to do this job on a sunny day as the sun breaks down the chlorine.
