It’s important to understand how weeds get in between the paving stones in order to prevent them from growing in the future. In this Presentation we will discuss it's Causes and Preventive method to get rid of it.
Reasons why Weeds, Moss, and Algae grow between the Pavers? Weeds, moss and algae typically grow between pavers that suffer from inadequate drainage or little sun exposure. While some encourage moss to grow between pavers for a rustic look, organic growth can be unsightly and damaging. The inadequate drainage can be caused by low or sunken areas, pavers that were improperly sloped during installation, patios that have stone walls around the boundary. Their growth will be accelerated due to shady spots, humid conditions, damp areas and periods of prolonged wet weather.
