Grass / Turf Pavers Maintenance
After installation of grass / turf pavers, maintenance is very minimal. It should be treated as if it were part of your front lawns. Therefore, you would water and mow the grass pavers system.
When plowing the grass pavers for snow removal, the blades should be lifted so as to clear the grass surface. It is also recommended to fit rollers to your plow machines and have your blades permanently lifted.
The primary maintenance requirement is to clean the drainage voids surface. When dirt and debris fill up the drainage openings, this can reduce the water flow capacity. By carrying out this cleaning process on a regular basis, you can help prevent the natural clogging from becoming a serious problem.
Here is a quick maintenance checklist:
- You should inspect your site on a monthly basis, in the first few months after installation. Then after this the inspection should be done annually.
- Vacuum sweeping followed by high pressure hosing should ideally be carried out four times a year.
- Repair cracks and potholes promptly, or replace with new paving systems
