Q: I’m planning to build a small patio area with landscape pavers. Should I seal the pavers?
A: Sealing your pavers is not absolutely necessary, but it is recommended. A sealed paver surface is much easier to clean, and may even prevent staining. Also, sealing will enhance and maintain brightly colored pavers. Sealing your pavers will prevent the growth of weeds in between your joints. You can also discourage weeds by ensuring the joints are completely filled with sand to prevent the amount of weed seeds that fall between the pavers.
