How to get your pavers summer-ready

You probably haven’t given your outdoor paving a lot of thought over winter, but with all the rain, they could have collected mould, moss, and lots of weeds. Here’s how to get rid of slip hazards and get them looking great for the warmer weather.

1. Sweep

You can’t get to the grime if your pavers are covered with leaves and dirt. Sweep away as much debris as you can with a stiff bristled broom.

2. Weed

Winter rain provides the perfect breeding conditions for mould, moss, and weeds, especially in shadier areas. Either pull out the weeds by hand, making sure you get all of the roots, or try our tips for removing weeds without chemicals.

3. Rinse

Hose your pavers down (a garden hose will do, but if you have a high-pressure washer, this will be more effective).  


Pressure washing your patio should remove most of the grime, but you might need to give it a good scrub with a stiff bristled brush and soapy water to get rid of it – then rinse again.

5. Relax

Sit back, relax and congratulate yourself on a job well done!


1. Get someone else to do it!
