Im thinking this would destroy them. am i right?
not if they were put in correctly
it wouldnt gouge them with the plow scraping?
just searched the net. I guess you can plow them. the thought makes me cringe though.
They make rubber blades for plows. That's what they use on my stamped driveways I have done.
Absolutely not. The only issue I have ever seen is some rust on light grey colors. I used to plow one that was installed real bad and it probably caused more damage to my plow than the pavers. Real flat pavers though are hard to get traction on.
I'd say it depends on the pavers too.
Cheapo pavers don't have a good tinsel strength and can chip easily.
If the job was done right, with high quality pavers, then I wouldn't hesitate to plow them.
Even if you chip a few, you give them character, right ??
Last time I knew, character goes for high prices these days.
I plow a driveway that was done with pavers about 20 years ago. They were cheap pavers (probably not bad for the time) and the install was not very good. There are large ruts where the cars drive repeatedly plus a 2" dip right in front of the garage. The driveway gets plowed with a standard plow plus we've used a tractor bucket and a bucket loader on it before. No broken, chipped or missing pavers. The only thing you notice is the "ridges" tend to turn white from being scraped.
