A paver patio, drive, or walkway is a great way to add character to an outdoor space. But you can take it a step further by adding a sealer.

Once the surface is complete, remove the excess sand, and wash it carefully with clean water. Then, be sure it’s completely dry before applying a masonry sealer with a pump-up garden sprayer.
