How to Keep Your Driveway Pavers Looking Like New

If you are looking for a way to give your home an added bit of style and charm, then driveway pavers are a great place to start. Better yet, opting for pavers ensures you will have a beautiful and durable driveway that will last for years to come – providing you take time to do some simple maintenance.

Like anything else that comes with a home, a paver driveway is not without some basic tasks to keep it looking like new. But fortunately, these driveway paver tasks are not excessively time consuming, and do not require you purchasing a large amount of equipment!

Maintaining Your Driveway Pavers Appearance

Once your driveway pavers are in place, it is important that you make time to keep them looking their best. These simple actions will make a huge difference in how the pavers will continue to look.

·      Take time to sweep the pavers off. The best time is to do so when it looks like it might rain. This is because when leaves or other items get wet they can actually stain your pavers – not to mention it is easier to remove dry items than wet ones. Of course, before a rain isn’t the only time you should sweep as having debris on your pavers keeps one from seeing how beautiful they are!

·      After sweeping, use your water hose with a spray attachment to rinse of the pavers. This will remove dirt and grime.

·      Seal pavers once they are installed, and then reapply the sealer periodically – typically every 2-3 years. This will help maintain the crisp look they have at installation. Failing to seal the pavers can cause them to lose their original color and become dingy.

·      During the spring and summer when weeds can be a nuisance, take time to remove any plants that might try to grow between the pavers. A simple approach is to treat the spaces with a weed killer/prevention product. Weed growth can also be minimized by filling the cracks with polymeric sand. The sand hardens when moistened thus helping to hold the pavers in place and preventing weed growth, too.

·      If something gets spilled on your pavers – oil, grease, gasoline, etc. – take time immediately to remove them. A good cleaning solution can be made by making a paste from powder dish detergent and water. Spread the paste on the affected area, scrub it gently with a bristled brush, wait 10 to 20 minutes then use the hose to wash away the detergent.

·      In the event that one of your pavers is damaged, replace it sooner rather than later.

Maintaining your driveway pavers is a simple task, and one you don’t want to overlook. After all, your pavers are an investment in your property and if properly maintained, they will last for decades.

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

    Ryan E. Marietta, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

    Amy & Joe Roswell, GA

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”
