So I kind of want to dedicate an entire podcast to weeds and mold. It's a common issue in our industry and anybody who owns pavers knows what I'm talking about. So I wanted to address this and maybe help with some suggestions. And I also want to talk about the pros and cons and things you need to know.
Okay so first of all, weeds. How do they grow? Well, you're going to have some weeds that grow from underneath the pavers and come through the cracks, the joints of the pavers, and you get some weeds that grow on top. These are little weeds where the little seed will drop in, and then the root structure is very small. If you were to pull it out with your fingers comes out very easily. There's not much to the root structure.
Whereas the weeds that grow from underneath, they typically have a stronger root structure and they're a little more difficult to get out. We see both of these on a daily basis, whether it be on a pool deck, walkway, or a driveway. The way the seeds get in there are typically live plants around your house, in your landscaping, on your pool deck, that sort of thing. And when the landscapers cut the grass, seeds blow everywhere and they get into those joints and that's, what's gonna make those weeds grow. Okay?
