We take every care to ensure that your lawn looks great even if you have pets. We use Turf Deo during the maintenance process of your turf to ensure that your lawn is fresh.

Maintenance of pavers
There’s very little maintenance involved in pavers. If you get a trusted paving installation company to install your pavers, you can be certain that you’ll have a job done properly.
As the years go by, it’s normal for pavers to lose their look of newness and will start looking older and deteriorated. This is even more so for paving that received heavier tyre traffic, so plenty of cars in and out of that driveway or parking lot for that matter. With time, the brickwork can start to weaken and crumble or become loose. However, with paving maintenance, you can prolong the life and look of your driveway pavers. You’ll also save much more when maintaining your paving than it would cost to replace and redo your paving from scratch.
At Royal Paving and Artificial Turf, we take every bit of care to ensure that there isn’t additional damage to the environment and to your paving products. Using an organic soap/degreaser and water mix in a power hose we clean off the surface areas. We also have other special equipment to help remove stains and grease and to make sure the paving surfaces look brighter and newer. As part of our maintenance, we repair any brickwork and sagging ground that may be present on the paved area. This is followed by regrouting and an application of sealant to ensure that the paving lasts and looks beautiful and new again.
Sweeping and high-pressure hosing
You can sweep your pavers to get rid of dirt like leaves, and other loose debris. Using a high-pressure hose can help lighten oil marks on your paving, it can also help reduce any tire marks.
Getting rid of algae
Because of its porous nature, organic material like algae can grow on the pavers. To remove the organic matter, a solution of dishwashing liquid, warm water, and serious “elbow grease” will do. You can also use some chlorine solution and scrub it down with a hard brush. Sealing your pavers after installation will prevent algae, moss, and weeds from growing.
Get rid of “efflorescence”
Effloresce is the white deposits that sometimes grow on paving with time. Lime deposits occur naturally as a reaction to CO2 in the air on the porous concrete. The appearance of efflorescence is by no means a manufacturing or products fault. It usually disappears naturally, but it won’t affect the durability of the paving itself. There are products on the market to remove the efflorescence.
Paving maintenance 101
- Pavers shouldn’t stay moist so sun is good to prevent moss
- Sweep it regularly
- Hose it off once in a while
Maintenance of exposed aggregate
Exposed aggregate is a beautiful outdoor or indoor feature. While it is hardwearing and robust, it also provides low maintenance. Make sure that you use an experienced professional company to install the exposed aggregate. You must also make sure that you get a professional company to help with the maintenance of your exposed aggregate as this will ensure that additional maintenance is undertook. This includes repairing of broken or loose aggregate. You can also have your exposed aggregate sealed or resealed after the clean up process. Sealing is very important to prevent deep set oil and stains, as well as dirt and grime from getting into the nooks and crannies of the stone cement mix.
Regular maintenance of your exposed aggregate will help keep it looking good for longer.
Use a high-powered hose to wash down your exposed aggregate.
Cleaning grease stains
For grease stains, hot water is your best friend, but some older stains can be harder to clean. You can also use a chemical degreasing agent with hot water and a hard bristled brush to scrub it off.
