Nobody wants their pristine driveway to come under attack from troublesome weeds, so careful and specific maintenance is crucial to prevent weeds growing in between the cracks of block paving.
Remember, there is no such thing as a surface that is weed-free , and spraying the area with weed killer – no matter how powerful – is simply not enough.
Instead, sealing block paving is a highly-recommended method of sealing, stabilising and protecting the block paving effectively. It is also one of the most successful steps you can take to stop weeds from establishing, growing and returning.
Acting quickly is key. You should seal your block paving soon after the paving is laid, otherwise seeds can easily find their way into the sandy sub-base. Once embedded into the lower layers, they can be almost impossible to remove. Consequently, you should let your block paving ‘bed in’ for as little time as possible before sealing.
