You might have heard of landscaping but are you familiar with just what a hardscape is? The word hardscape refers to any part of your landscape that is covered by a hard material such as concrete, brick and other types of stone.
If you're thinking about improving the hardscape maintenance, you're going to have to do various things to increase its ability to withstand the elements.

You need to use a sealer on your external stones and concrete. Sealers make it easier to clean the areas. The way the sealer works is that when it is applied, it creates a protective barrier that keeps natural oils, fuel, food and other chemicals from staining the surface.
A good sealer can also reduce the amount of weed growth and pests that have a home in your stone landscape surfaces. Just a little sealer can go a long way and it also looks more appealing than unsealed areas. You may protect your areas from the elements and products like sodium that can damage the outlook of your pavers.
If you have recently acquired your paver floors installed, you may well be anxious to use a sealer to start out protecting the top. It is advised that you wait around at least 8 weeks before you apply any products to your new surfaces. That is to allow the rest of the creation residues to dissipate.
Hire the service of a specialist company to do the sealing and to carry out the hardscape services. They can clean the surface and apply fresh sealant after. Keep in mind that a good application of sealant can last for a couple of years. After 3 to 4 years, you might want a business to turn out and clean and seal the top for continued protection.
