Your new driveway should last for years on end, but only if you give it the right treatment from the start. It is very important to properly seal the completed paving – neglecting to do this will quickly form a breeding ground for unwanted weeds. Make sure that you invest in a high quality sealant – I am sure that you won’t be impressed it your piece of the art paving starts to turn a dull green after a couple of weeks.
Those experienced in making patio decks frequently have a weighty form placed on the sand bed for the first row. Once the row is in position, frequent verification of the alignment of subsequent rows will guarantee an even line of bricks or pavers.
Not all expensive paving is good paving and there are cheap alternatives which are often better than their expensive counterparts. Be wary of cheap paving but be just as wary of expensive paving.
After a year or two you might see that your pavement starts looking a bit dreary. When this is the case you know that it is time to apply new sealant. Firstly make sure that you’ve removed all the weeds and dirt and that the paving bricks are completely dry before you start applying your sealant. Try to do this on a sunny day as it is important that the sealant has time to properly settle and dry, before you walk or drive over the bricks again.
