Lawn pavers are attractive ways to frame a walkway or create a path in a garden or lawn. If the stones are placed at a distance apart from one another, it can be a challenge to keep weeds and moss from growing in the spaces. Wet moss can be slippery on the pavers and make the pathway appear unkempt and overgrown with weeds. Remove the moss and keep it from growing back with a few simple steps to keep the pavers looking clean and cared for.
Things You'll Need
- Spray bottle
- Pressure washer
- Polymeric sand
Mix equal parts bleach and water into a spray bottle.
Saturate the moss with the bleach mixture and allow it to soak for approximately five minutes.
Pressure wash the cracks between the pavers to remove all of the moss. This will also clean dirt and other debris from the pavers.
Allow the pavers to completely dry.
Spread polymeric sand in the cracks or spaces of the pavers. Spread the sand using a broom so that all of the crack are filled. Tap the sand with the broom to press the sand between the pavers. This will prevent moss from growing between the pavers.
