Paver driveways, patios and walkways are an investment that improves both the value and appearance of your home. In today’s landscape, polymeric sand as used as the infill between pavers or flagstone in your new patio or driveway. This product offers many more benefits as opposed to using regular washed sand. Polymeric sand stabilizes pavers while preventing erosion, inhibits weed growth, and is resistant to ants and other insects. Polymeric sand is standard and included in all our paving projects.
There are 2 types of polymeric sand: RG and HP.
- RG sand is used for standard projects and to fill joints up to 1″ wide.
- HP sand is a heavier sand used for wide joints (up to 4″ wide) and surfaces with heavy traffic or humid areas.
However, these pavers are not immune to the effects of time and use.
It is important to protect any investment, and sealing your pavers is no different. Spear’s Landscape has been trained and certified in the cleaning and sealing of pavers. It is extremely important that the sealants are applied correctly to make sure that the aesthetic value is not compromised. But when done right, the benefits of sealing your pavers are endless!
Here are a few recommended sealants we offer:
Clear Look –
The clear look is a sealer that maintains the original look and color of the original pavers while providing a barrier that protects the pavers from use and the everyday “wear and tear” that they may experience.
Color Boost –
The color boost is a product that offers the same protection as the “Clear Look” while at the same time enhancing the colors of the pavers. This sealant gives your new pavers that extra little “pop” that you are looking for.
Wet Look –
The wet look also provides your new pavers with a great amount of protection. This product also enhances the colors as the color boost does. However, this adds the extra “wet” look giving your pavers a glossy look all year round.
Regardless of the size of a new patio or driveway, it is a great idea to use sealants to ensure full protection and allow your new hardscape to be enjoyed for years and years!
