Preparing for Autumn with Proper Lawn and Paver Maintenance

With September on our heels and its cooler temperatures and falling leaves, it is the perfect time to start thinking about preparing for autumn with proper lawn and paver maintenance. You can do more now to impact how your lawn will look next year than at any other time of the year.

Fertilize your lawn with a winterizer fertilizer before the first heavy freeze to encourage strong, vigorous root development. This step allows grass to get off to a better start in the spring and increases resistance to disease and insects.

While nobody likes to rake leaves, it’s an important step in autumn lawn maintenance. If you have a lot of leaves, mulch them and apply them to your lawn where they act like a second fertilizer application for the grass.

Luckily, with Belgard pavers your job is easy. Our pavers require very little maintenance. Thanks to a manufacturing process that ensures quality, colorfastness and weather resistance, our unique Colorgard technology evenly disperses colors throughout each and every paver, wall, and curb unit we make. Belgard products resist UV rays, maintain their original color year after year, and hold up to stressful weather extremes.

Additionally, stained or broken pavers can be easily replaced without patches. Ants and weeds in joints can be prevented with sealers or herbicides.

You can still enjoy your outdoor space even during upkeep – involve the whole family and make it a fun activity. The chores will get done faster and you can get back to relaxing on your beautiful, leaf-free Belgard patio.

    1. I have a year old Belgard Mega Arbel walk that has stains from a River Birch which was infected with aphids and dripped sticky goo all over the paving stones; (neighbor) whose tree overhangs our walk. What can I do to clean the stones without affecting the polymeric sand?

      1. Hi Gretchen,

        Thanks for checking out the blog! The sticky goo is insect poop. A good general cleaner should work. I would first suggest cleaning it with some bleach. This will be the least evasive to the pavers as there are basic household cleaning chemicals in bleach. If that doesn’t work then any one of the general paving stone cleaners sold by Techniseal should work just fine. Always test an area first when using the paving stone cleaners and follow the directions on the bottle.

        Hope that helps, good luck!

  1. I have the Mega Bergerac and they have a film that was from a water soluble sealer. How can I remove this and start over? Should I use a circular power scrubber and a cleaner or simple a cleaner and power wash with a circular tip?

    Basically I want to remove the dirt, the film, and some of the mortar that splashed over from building a outdoor kitchen.

    If you could suggest a decent detergent/cleaner to use and a sealer for a wet look, that would be great.
