No matter the season, your garden patio will require some minimal maintenance, especially if you want to keep it in great condition. Most importantly, the paving should be kept clean and free of dust and plants that may damage the paving. Here are some simple tips from us at Ken Lomax Landscaping for keeping your paving in Christchurch beautiful.
When you brush your paving regularly, you keep dirt and debris off the surface and prevent seed germination. If weeds are starting to grow in your paving and you haven’t cleaned it in a while, a good brushing will break up and prevent them from spreading.
Occasionally, even if you brush your pavement routinely, a more thorough cleaning will be required. Choose an acid-free cleaner rather than warm soapy water to avoid damaging the pavement. To ensure thorough cleaning, work slowly over a small area. Be careful not to damage the mortar between pavement joints with high pressure.
Spend Time Weeding
You will have to weed regularly if you have damaged mortar or spaces between the paving stones. You should always try to pull weeds from the roots to prevent them from regrowing. If pulling weeds does not seem to be controlling the problem, the next option is to use a weedkiller. Effective, eco-friendly weed killers are sprayed on the leaves of the plants and are generally all-purpose killers. It may take a little longer to achieve results with systemic products, but the results are worth the wait.
