    One of my guys was sloppy and got a little mortar on a paver patio we had just installed recently. What's the best way to get dried mortar off of pavers, without ruining the color on the pavers?

    or - depending on the pavers - maybe just flip them over?

    or - in the 14 yrs I been doing this - we usually have left over pavers. Just pull some left overs off the pallet.


    That was easy!

    Yah, we still had several left over in our shop. So that's what we ended up doing - just replacing those pieces.
