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 take all the pea gravel out, a regular app of vinegar or Roundup may be the easiest thing to do(you probably know that). You can look into some rock and pebble epoxy to lock your gravel in place and still see it. The epoxy will yellow some. Kindof expensive and messy depending on the job. Don't know about weed control after epoxy.

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!

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.

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.

Had to exchange one of the tubs as it had water sloshing around in it. (open and check it before you leave the store). The other 3 were not of the same consistency. Two were very fine granules and the 3rd was gritty, this was probably the best out of the 3 I bought. 2 months later we have weeds growing in the places we usually have them (started almost straight away). The area I used the gritty stuff seems better, the fine stuff I'm still finding at the bottom of the drive which indicates to me that it did not bond and will not bond after watering it in as recommended. The rain we have had seems to be washing it out!! It took me a whole weekend to-do this, I have half a tub left which I will do this week, however as it is the fine granules I feel it isn't going to work. Just glad I didn't pay someone to-do it......

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure why bad reviews I followed the instructions completely and the product is as advertised. The Santa hardened between my paver joints and is a very pretty tan color. It did darken up a little. Installation took longer than expected because every time the leaf blower or went over the pavers, a little more dust would come up in the air. I made sure that all of the sand and dust was off of the pavers before I wet them. I also used the mist setting on my hose head instead of shower like it recommends to make sure that it watered it in softly. I was also careful not to overwater/let standing water accumulate because that would washout the bonding agent ( Learned this from other reviews). I would imagine the bad reviews came about because either the sand was overwatered, drowning the bonding agent, or the dust was not completely removed from the pavers, leaving a white haze of discoloration. Take your time with installation and you won't regret buying this product.
