Maximize Curb Appeal: Essential Tips for Spring Maintenance of Interlocking Pavers

Updated: May 6



As the vibrant hues of spring emerge, it's the perfect time to rejuvenate your outdoor haven with some essential maintenance for your interlocking pavers. At Kiwi Pavers, we understand the importance of preserving the beauty and functionality of your outdoor living areas. Follow our expert guide to ensure your paver patio or driveway shines all season long!


General Maintenance: Clean your pavers each Spring with a coarse-bristle “stable” broom and a paver cleaner to keep them looking like new. Some weeds, if left unaddressed, can shift pavers apart over time. Be sure to periodically apply a granular weed preventative between joints as a part of your paver maintenance routine.

Be careful when cleaning your pavers with power washers as the force of the spray can expose the aggregate under the paver’s surface. Wait at least 30 days to seal your pavers so you can remove any efflorescence that might appear after installation.


Sand Replenishment: Over time, the sand between your pavers may erode, leading to instability and potential weed growth. Take the opportunity this spring to refill the joints with fresh sand, ensuring a solid foundation and a polished appearance. Polymeric sand is a mixture of fine sand and special additives that, when activated by water, creates a binding agent. Fill the joints between your pavers with polymeric sand using a broom or specialized sand spreader. Be sure to distribute the sand evenly and compact it into the joints to prevent future erosion. Once the sand is in place, lightly mist the entire surface with water using a garden hose. This activates the polymeric sand, causing it to harden and lock the pavers in place. Allow the sand to dry completely before walking or driving on the surface.


Sealing: Protect your investment by applying a high-quality sealant to your interlocking pavers. Sealing not only enhances the color and texture of your pavers but also guards against stains, UV damage, and harsh weather conditions. It's a simple yet effective way to prolong the lifespan of your outdoor surfaces.
