A paver is a tool used to remove weeds between bricks and pavers. This includes driveways and driveways leading to a house. The tool, with a length of about 10 to 11 inches, has a lined L-shaped blade that is connected to a wooden handle. The blade itself is about four to five inches long.
The use of a paver requires a construction site with a stone path or brick topped with weeds that need to be cut. The cost of the tool varies between 15 and 25 USD and can be easily purchased online or at a gardening store offering gardening tools.
Step 1 – Buy a Paver
To use a block paver, you must buy a block paver. Talk to an online retailer selling this tool or to the gardening section of a home improvement center. Here you will find different brands of paving slabs to use in your weeding project. Select the tool that best fits your hand and is the easiest to use. Do not forget that the paver is a sharp tool; so be careful that it stays covered and that the side of the blade is away from your body.
Step 2 – Use the paving knife
Take the paver and use it as a border tool to remove weeds and other growth shoots between the stone and the brick. The knife design allows you to slide it into crevices between pavers and bricks to eliminate weeds properly. You can use the tool with a rocking motion between the bricks or a sawing motion to cut the growth of the weed in between.
Step 3 – Keep the tool clean
After using the block paver, rinse it with water to eliminate the build-up of dirt and debris resulting from your weeding work. Keep the blade dry and away from excessive moisture that may cause it to rust. You can store the paver in an outdoor tool storage unit or garage, where you can maintain other outdoor maintenance and lawn care tools.
Once you have a block paving tool in your hand and you spend time practicing it, you'll get an idea of how it's used and how it's used to eliminate weed growth between brick and stone pavers from your garden. Periodically, about once or twice a month, you have to take out the storage tool and use it to eliminate weeds that may grow back, such as dandelion flowers. If you can, apply a herbicide between the pavers once the weeds have been removed with the knife. This will eliminate weed growth problems in the long term.
