Q) Can a Kersten sweeper be used on cobble stones?

Q) Can a Kersten Sweeper be used on round top cobbles?

A) Yes The Kersten Sweeper can clean a round top cobble surface very successfully. The forward speed, brush speed, and brush height may all be adjusted to provide just the right effect. In some intances this type of surface does not want to be too clean, just not dirty and full of mud in the joints so that it does hve a chance to drain properly as it was designed to do.

Q) Can a Kersten weedbrush be used in a garden centre planteria?

A) Many garden centres now use the Kersten weedbrush and sweeper to keep the planterias debris free, moss free and presentable. It is very common for organic debris to be spilt on the surfaces. This combined with frequent watering and semi indoor environment encourages the growth of of moss and algae in the surfaces. The sweeper may be used as a regular maintenance tool for removing spilled debris and the weed brush is suitable for a deep clean removing compacted material and established growth in the joints of the surface. This picture shows the weed brush removing estabished moss growth from a block paved surface in a garden centre application. The joints of the blocks are still damp where the deris has been storing the moisture. This surface can now dry out very quickly and further moisture will drain effectively through the surface discouraging futher growth of moss etc.

Q) Why does moss keep coming back after I have sprayed moss killer?

A) Moss killer is effective in certain conditions. To understand when it will be most effective you must appreciate why it grows in the first place.
Moss is not a fungus; it is a very primitive plant that has survived from the ancient past before today's modern plants developed. Since Moss is from a time in earth's history where everything was trying to kill something else, Moss is very efficient at crowding out and killing modern plants like grass. It largely thrives in dampness and shade.
There are many methods for control and removal, the simplest and most effective being to change the conditions that are conducive to its growth - i.e. remove its food source which are organic matter and moisture. This may be achieved by sweeping the surface with stiff brush and removing any build up that is organic material and contains moisture.
By keeping a surface swept the ability for moss to become established is virtually nil.
