The spring and summer season brings many celebrations. From Birthdays & weddings to graduation parties and mother and fathers day to name a few. Many people are now hosting these gatherings in there homes and on their properties. With the explosion of the home landscaping industry over the past 20 years there are beautiful properties and outdoor living environments that make wonderful settings for these types of get togethers. Shrub prunning, fresh mulch and flower bed plantings may be all thats needed to set the stage for your event. Consider what some decorative planters would add to your outdoor living environment. Perhaps a hardscape cleaning and restoration should be your focus. Attention to these details might be all it takes to leave you and your guests with wonderful lasting memories.
Protect Your Investment
Like everything else in the home environment your pavers and hardscaping require periodic care to maintain their appearance and condition. One of the issues is many of these projects were sold as needing little or no maintenance so the homeowners pretty much ignored them after they were installed. After years of neglect the colors have faded and weeds and moss took over the joints between the pavers.
Paver cleaning, sealing and restoration is now available to help restore older projects and help maintain newer installations. After a thorough cleaning polymeric sand is swept into the paver joints – think grout – to eliminate future weed growth. A sealer/protectant is then applied to preserve and in some cases enhance the original color. The polymeric sand is typically a one time installation and the sealer/protectant should be applied every 2-3 years to maintain the fresh clean look of your hardscaping installation. These services typically cost between $1.50 & $2.25 per sq. ft. depending on the condition and size of the project.
No Really. It is. I know after – Latest count – 4 Noreasters & Colder Temps with more snow in March than in Feburary its hard to believe. But flowers and birds and green grass are nearly upon us. If you’ve been dreaming about new or updated flower and planting beds, a beautiful new outdoor living environment, new front walk & entry area or landscape lighting to name a few now is the time to begin planning for these projects. Early planning and a good working design are critical for completion before the summer season.
