Answer: 
According to the specs, each bag contains a volume of 4*8*15=480 cubic
inches of sand. If you plan to spread a 1 inch layer of sand over 37
square feet, then you are going to need 37*12*12=5328 cu inches of
sand, which means you will need 5328/480=11.1 bags. Since you cannot
buy a partial bag, you will need 12 bags of sand.

Answer: 
Hello Scott and thank you for your question.
If you plan to install patio stones over relatively level ground using one (1) inch of paver sand before tamping down, then you will need 8 bags to cover the 37 square feet. This should provide enough additional sand to sweep across the stones and fill in the joints since one bag covers 75-100 square feet of paver joints.
If you need to level more than one Read More

If you need to level more than one inch, use the Step 1 Paver Base material.

Answer: 
Yes, the Leveling Sand can be used to fill voids in-between pavers. You will need a stiff bristled broom and want to make several passes in multiple directions over the joints. This will ensure the sand has completely filled any of the voids.

Hi dqb12.
Thank you for your great question.
Yes, you could use the Pavestone Leveling sand for this purpose, however, if your space between your bricks is tight, you would be better off use the “All Purpose Sand”

Both of these are a finer sift with much smaller grains of sand that will better set between the small paver space.
It is also recommended that you use the PermaSand by SAKRETE.
http://www.homedepot.com/p/SAKRETE-PermaSand-40-lb-Paver-Joint-Sand-65470004/202070568
This sand will harden and help to prevent weed seeds from getting in between your bricks.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Answer: 
Howdy Joe,
While it may be ok to use Leveling Sand, the amount of sand in it may make it compact too much.
Regular gravel is what is called for with decomposed granite and or layer of oyster shells.
happy bocce playing,
Coach Dave

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great in Conjunction with the Pavestone Step 1 Paver Base Had an area with no grass that we wanted to add a paver patio. I initially leveled the existing dirt and sand area out and watered the heck out of it for a week to ensure the existing material had compacted. I then added 2" of the Step 1 Paver Base and ran a plate compactor over it two times in each direction. I then added an additional 2" of the Step 1 Paver Base, and ran the plate compactor again over it twice, in both directions. It is really important that you ensure there are no high or low spots (I kept it under 1/4"). I then placed a stick of 1" PVC Pipe along one edge of the area, and another 8' away. I then added 1" of the Leveling Sand between the PVC, and then pulled a very straight 2x4 along the two pipes (called screeding) to create a smooth, level surface. I repeated this until the entire area had been completed. Was then just a matter of placing down the pavers, adding the border to keep everything secure, and swept some PermaSand in the joints, got it wet, and the patio looks incredible! May 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Stones Needing to repair many sunken pavers at a home we moved into last fall I read the reviews on this leveling sand and wasn't sure about it because of the reviews stating there were stones mixed in with the sand. I went to the local store and tried to see if there were any in the bags but none were obvious. I purchased two bags and started my repair job. After using the two bags I found no stones at all in either bag and the sand worked as advertised and it compacted well. However, I was surprised at how little of the product was in a bag, I used both bags fairly quickly on just about a dozen or so pavers. It is relatively inexpensive for one bag but it looks like my job will take many more since there are a large number of pavers to raise in just the first row around the pool. I do like the product though, I bought two more bags today and will buy more as the job progresses, I'm guessing it'll take me several weekends just to repair the immediate row of pavers around the pool and many more weekends for the others in various areas including a garden path. Repairing the sunken pavers isn't difficult but is very labor and time intensive, this stuff works for my application and I will use it again. April 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for working with pavers, retaining block This paver sand was just the thing I needed to level and adjust height. It seems to have almost a concrete mixture in it. Once it gets damp it sort of sets up a bit. It can still be worked with but it will keep the other items in place. Made putting in my retaining wall a much easier job. It took me nearly 6 weeks ( rainy days not counted) to complete it. But, it's beautiful. May 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product to build a firm base I used the 0.5 cu. ft. Sand Paver Base (Step 1) bags as a base and then put this sand on top of it to build my new patio. It all came out solid and level - and it looks great. November 4, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Paver Joint Sand Ever! This is base sand ONLY. Specs indicate that it can be used as joint sand but it has no "joining" capabilities and has a number of large pebbles. The description of the product is way off. September 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product for laying Decroative block/stone I used this to lay block in the front of my home. I would highly recommend it. With the combination of the little stones and sand, leveling was much easier than laying pebble and leveling that. I had many downpours and the sand/stone held up. You will not regret it. July 25, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Paver base The crushed material is fine and does what you need it to do; however, there are far too many uncrushed rocks that you have to pick out when distributing the material. Out of approximately 10 bags I was able to fill 1.5 bags with approximately 1" diameter uncrushed rocks but that does not even count the abundance of rocks half that size. So I had a lot of unusable material when laying a base for pavers. A real nuisance. So there is not much an alternative available, since sand does not compress as well as this material. May 27, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for small projects These bags are great for small projects. My project stretched out over a couple months and after it was done I realized that after 25 to 30 bags I would have been better off just getting a ton delivered by a dump truck. If you are near that point though, the dump truck will cost about the same but you will get more material and can use it more liberally. I did find a few small rocks here and there but nothing that had any impact on leveling. There aren't enough present to cause difficulty filling paver voids either. July 2, 2013
