PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great if use a vibrator compactor to install I used this product when installing a 60 foot front walkway. It was much cheaper than joint sand for sale at the dedicated hardscape yard where I purchased pavers. I used a vibratory compactor to get cracks between the bricks filled. I had to reapply sand and vibrate seven times before joint sand stopped settling (aka disappearing in to the spaces between pavers). Without using a vibratory compactor, I do not think I could have properly filled the joints. I think much of the dissatisfaction with this product is due it is due to incomplete filling of the joints. Sakrete does not help by seeming to indicate the product can be properly installed without using a vibratory compactor. Installation without a compactor might work if the gaps between the pavers are large I suppose. With small joint widths, my experience would indicate one would not get complete joint fill without using a vibratory compactor. They rent vibratory compactors at many Home Depots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better'n Sand My wife and I did a small brick and stone patio project (16' X 12') using left over bricks and stone. We used PermaSand to fill the joints. We swept the PermaSand into the joints until we were satisfied that they were filled, removed the excess, and then misted them with water. The PermaSand sets in place much like mortar but allows excess moisture to drain. The PermaSand truly completes the project visually and structurally and is far superior to other sands used for this purpose. We’ve had several hard rains since completing the project and both the patio and the PermaSand have held up well. I’m happy with the results and would gladly recommend PermaSand to a anyone, including my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Use With Instant Results I received Permasand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand in a five gallon bucket four days ago and I put it to use the next day. I was installing a new brick walkway and I used play sand for stability and to keep weeds from growing through the spaces between the bricks. Well the weeds came back through the spaces of the bricks so it didn't work for me. I seen this Permasand on the Seeds program and I picked it after reading what it does and for its multiple uses. I am glad I got this. No more weeds between my bricks and they are level and stable, no more moving around. The directions on the bucket were easy to follow. I am now going to use it on my cracks in my drive way. I know I will be using it on more projects. I am totally satisfied with this product and its definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Solution I notice that there are a lot of unfavorable reviews of this product, and having now applied the product, I suspect that in many cases, the reason is the unreasonable expectations that some consumers might have about the characteristics of this product. This is NOT a mortar joint compound that will harden tough like cement, nor will it endure significant abuse or remain in place after a direct hit from the spray of a power-washer. However, when properly installed, I have found that this PermaSand product WILL resist movement and inhibit weed/insect penetration through paver joints as compared to untreated sand or no cover at all. If you take it for what it is (understanding its limitations) AND you are seeking to inhibit weed growth, insect activity and the migration of sand from paver joints, than (short of placing your pavers in a mortar bed), I think that this is the product that will be easiest to install and perform best. Over the years, I’ve often noticed sand accumulating at the bottom of my driveway after a period of heavy rain. I have no doubt this was sand that washed away from the joints between my pavers. Some pavers began to move and I noticed some water pooling where pavers were sinking. In the past, I had spread play sand into the paver joints to try to remediate this problem, but it had become annoying to have to do this on a regular recurring basis. So I settled on trying this product. Dirt and/or weeds seemed to accumulate in the joint space that was once occupied by sand, so before putting down the PermaSand, I power-washed my driveway to clean the surface of the bricks and to clear the dirt/weeds from the joints between the pavers. This helped significantly to create a 1/8 to 1/4 inch void between the pavers for the new sand (see picture). As I stated earlier, this product is not a mortar substitute, so if your application calls for power-washing, do it BEFORE you install the PermaSand, because by doing it afterwards you risk ruining your newly installed joint. Before starting out, I did some research concerning the application of polymeric sand. I found that it was important to try to pack the sand well enough into the joints between the bricks, to minimize voids, because the sand will harden after it gets wet, making it much more difficult to fill any subsurface voids later. I was concerned that using a broom with a larger head and wide span, might not allow me to push the sand down into all of the joints to fill subsurface voids, so I elected to use a small head, medium-stiffness-bristle broom instead (see picture). I was pleasantly surprised by the fine grit of the sand (in some instances, almost like powder), which fell into the grooves between the bricks without much effort. And although the small broom head made it easy to guide and/or pack the sand into place, it also meant the job took a little longer and required more effort. The manufacturer’s instructions suggest tapping the pavers with a broom handle to assist with compaction, but it seemed to have no effect on my compacting process, so I abandoned that effort. If you have access to a mechanical compactor, I would recommend its use. The products’ instructions state (and some reviewers confirm) that, the sand can cause surface discoloration – particularly as to red color or textured brick – if allowed to stand on a wet surface. So although my brick is an off-white color, before wetting the surface and joints, I took the precaution to gently blow any remaining sand particles from all surfaces using a small battery operated blower that I held at a low angle, to minimize disturbing the sand in the joints. I completed the job, by applying a gentle spray of water over the driveway surface (see picture), being sure to soak the joints sufficiently to allow water to penetrate deeply into the joints without creating a flood that would dislodge the sand. My wife (who can be hard to please) looked at the job after I was finished (see picture), and pronounced that she was very pleased that I had installed a new driveway! And our neighbor stopped by to ask what I did to refresh the look of the driveway, because she wanted to do the same! The early results suggest that the sand occupying the paver joints has hardened nicely, but only time (and a good rain) will tell for sure. As it stands now, I am very pleased with the results. There are so many variables at play relative to sand volume, that if you’re going to proceed with this product, I suggest you: (1) measure your paver surface area carefully, (2) assume you will obtain the lowest product yield per square foot (30 sf/bucket per the manufacturers product information), and (3) purchase perhaps 20% more product than you initially calculate – because who wants to suspend a project due to a shortage of sand, particularly when you can return the unused (unopened) product to HD later? I am happy with the results I got, and would recommend this product to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff I put this down with pea gravel and irregular pieces of slate and granite in a garden...It looks super and mixes with gravel and looks like aggregate. Easy to use also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on easy,fills cracks This bucket of permapaver joint sand worked well on our new patio this summer. We had an area that we used 12" x 12" patio pavers and mixed some 16" x 16" paver for accent. We used this sand to fill the joints, and there was a lot of them! lol We cleaned the area well before applying and then just used a wide long handle broom and spread the sand over all the pavers making sure to fill all the joints.We then used the light mist setting on the spray nosel on our hose to moisten the sand so it could set in the joints, then we let it dry.It actually was pretty easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Simply said, PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand does the job. I have a fairly small walkway leading from my driveway to the stoop in front of my house. It's 22 years old and was installed by the builder of the home, so the level of care and precision when building it was not exactly first rate. I have repaired it in the past, but I never used PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand, as a result the pavers were loose and some weeds would grow in the joints every summer. After using PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand, the walkway is completely different. It has a definite solid feel and there is no way any weeds will ever come back. So, I highly recommend PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand to anyone that is looking to install a new paver walkway or simply repair an old one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from didnt work as well as expected We used this in a walkway around paver stones. Some of the spaces were over the 1 1/2 in maximum so that might have been the problem. But a couple places didn't harden and crumbled up after two weeks. overall most of the walkway set up nice. Will buy again to fill in the crumbled up areas. easy to use
