Questions & Answers

I have patterned layed concrete blocks with pea gravel between them. They are approximately 2-3 inches apart. Will this help to keep the weeds down?

Asked by: Cber
If you don't want to redo the pavers, your best bet is put landscape fabric under the pea gravel. You can use a wet-vac to vacuum out the pea gravel, or remove by hand. Lay landscape fabric over all and cut out. You will still get the occasional weed. You can use vinegar, Roundup, or whatever you use on weeds. HD sells a good polypropylene landscape fabric. It last for years. They sell good leather gloves too if you choose to remove the pea gravel by hand. I know working with pea gravel, stone, etc. is hard on a body. Good luck!

I am going to build a planter bed out of cinder blocks and planned on using this to fill in the holes and stabilize the wall. Will this work?
Asked by: JLG
One thing to consider is how high you'e going. If you're only going to build it about two or three you can probably get away with it, but I'd use regular cement. On a low wall (2 to 3 high) you could fill just the bottom ones and the rest with regular sand or gravel--depending on what look you prefer. Anything higher than that though, I'd use cement in all or at lest every other (and the top row, of course). Another plus with cement is you can get different colors and paint it in the future if you so desire. Oh yeah, one more thing if you're gong to build a high or deep wall: don't forget to use a good adhesive between the blocks (sides, tops, and bottoms) so the wall doesn't keel over from the weight and pressure of the soil, especially when it rains or gets watered. Good luck with you project!

If pavers are already layed and moss is growing between some does it need to be removed? If so how should that be done?
Asked by: Steve
Personally, I'd pull them all up and remove any and all vegetation that's there. Then cover it with that fiber (it comes in rolls) that blocks sunlight , replace the pavers, then use the PermaSand. That's just me. If it's a place you're renting, that's one thing, but when it's your own home you want to do it right. Right? It will take a little (okay, a LOT) more time and effort, but you'll be so happy with the final result you'll completely forget about the sweat you just wiped from your brow. Good luck with your project!

What can i use to keep the pea gravel in place between the pavers?

Asked by: Kat
Why did you choose pea gravel to fill between pavers? Try sand. Or, last season I re-did my 2 patios and used PermaSand between the pavers. My goal was to better control weed growth (I used sand when I first put in the patios about 10-12 years ago, which after a few years is prime for weed seeds to sprout). When applied as directed, the PermaSand works great. I hired a crew to re-do my large patio and they did not spray enough water on the PermaSand and it failed - just made a rubbery crust as described on the package directions. I power-washed the product out of the pavers in the failed areas and re-did the PermaSand myself - now it's firm and looks terrific!

PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 408.

What they don't tell you is that if you are using a cement paver that is darker in color, and it is porous, after sweeping and blowing what is left on the top after tamping things down...You will spend the next two weeks scrubbing your pavers with either hot water or white vinegar trying to get the polymeric haze off and bring the color of your pavers back. This has caused me no end of grief. It also caused me to get on the internet and try to see if this was a isolated problem. It is NOT! There are other companies out there that produce this kind of product that guarantee that you will not get any haze from using their product, my suspicion of this one is that there is a certain amount of concrete powder mixed with the sand and polymer and this is what is the devil to get out of the pores of your pavers...Use this product at your own peril. Wish I could say something positive about it...

No matter how careful you are, you will still get white spots on your pavers. I should not have bought this Sakrete Polymeric sand. I've done a lot of pavers but never used this brand of Polylmeric Sand. I had a small area to do and thought this would be more cost effective. I had read the reviews about getting white spots on the pavers so I was extra careful. I poured the sand into the cracks using a cup (to minimize any on top of the pavers) and left at least a 1/4 inch to the top of the pavers. I swept the area 2-3 times making sure there was no sand on top of the pavers. I then used a tank sprayer filled with water to wet down the sand in the cracks. I also washed the edges of the pavers so that any sand particles would wash into the cracks. This was a lot more work than I had ever done with any pavers before. I still got some white spots on the pavers. I wet down each spot and used a brush and was able to reduce how noticeable the spots were but most were still there.

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.

The first tub I applied I watered with too heavy a spray of water and it clumped up and washed out all over the top of my pavers. I was more careful with the 2nd and 3rd tubs. make sure the joint sand is in the cracks and not in the beveled area of the pavers and sprinkle with a gentle spray, preferably using a sprinkler.

I bought PermaSand Paver Sand to redo a 38 year old pavered walk leading to the main entrance of our home. A couple of years prior I had power washed the media between the pavers and mistakenly filled it with play sand. It became an amusement park for hundreds of ant colonies and dozens of weeds. So I power washed it all out again and this time used PermaSand. I followed the instructions and PermaSand filled all of the cracks and crevices nicely and after being sprinkled a couple of times hardened and looked good..but in three and now four weeks later we have half a dozen ant colonies and about the same number of weeds that were stronger than PermSand and now taking up residence in our front walk. It looks better but is not as good of a final result as I would have desired.

I put down 5 buckets of this stuff on a well prepped existing paver patio following the directions as closely as possible. I didn't have a plate compactor, so i brushed it like heck and blew off and swept. After watering per instructions it seemed to fill and harden ok; I was careful not to let water pool. However there was a lot of staining on the pavers (not sure how i could have gotten more sand off before watering). I waited a month then power washed with a 40 degree spray nozzle hoping to remove some of the staining. Well, it dislodged a fair amount of the material - so i have a stained patio with open cracks. My recommendation - let a professional do it - i hate this stuff!!! I wasted a full day and over 100 bucks. Don't make the same mistake.
