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!

PermaSand 40 lb. Paver Joint Sand is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 791.

We used this product to seal the joints on a 1100 sq ft concrete paver patio. I read all the reviews, good and bad and decided to go with it. It worked perfectly, with this caveat, do everything the instructions say to do, TWICE! We poured out the sand, broomed it in, ran a power compacter over it and all the sand disappeared. Poured more sand, broomed it in again and then diligently used the brooms to thoroughly clean ALL the sand off the bricks. Then we used a blower on low setting to blow any remaining sand off being careful to not dislodge any sand from the spaces around and between the bricks. I then SOFTLY misted the entire patio twice, again being careful to not disturb or dislodge any of the sand. And finally after about 15 minutes I used the shower setting on the sprayer and wetted the entire patio again and then nothing touched the patio for 24 hours. The pavers are solid, there was not one speck of the sand to remove and we love it. I should add that this process took 3 people about 4 hours to complete, but it was worth the time.

I read the reviews so I was aware that it may not harden but I thought it was because people had not installed it properly. I tried it way ahead of time on a few scrap pieces and it seemed to work so I followed the instructions to the T and was very careful to make sure it received enough water to penetrate deep down on a brand new 400-sq-ft patio. 5 days later it is all gummy and washes off with a garden hose. See pictures. I wasted a day of work to use it and now it will take another day to pressure wash it out and replace it with a better product.

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.

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...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product does not perform well at all. No... This product does not perform well at all. No matter how careful you are it leaves a white film on the surface of the pavers. I followed the directions and applied to dry pavers and swept the surface. I used my leaf blower to blow the surface off before I started spraying it with water. After following the directions for applying the water the sand did not completely harden. Even after a few days without being rained on to allow it to cure I still have spots where the sand has completely been washed out of the cracks by the rain. I wish I had remembered that this was the stuff I bought last year and didn't like so that I didn't make the same mistake twice. My father-in-law bought this same stuff and was so disappointed that he scraped it all out and went with a different product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I power washed the patio pavers. Removed all the old joint material. Waited a couple days for pavers to dry. The paver patio is about 440 square feet. I bought 5 tubs of this product. Swept it into the joints. Tapped the pavers down to settle the product into the joints. I used the handle end of the broom. Then, used a leaf blower to remove excess product. Then watered the product in. I suggest using the "mist" setting as opposed to "shower". This allows better control and allows you to not water too much. If you water too much, a white foam will rise up & stain the pavers. Close attention must be paid to the amount of H2O applied. My first time doing this & it turned out great!!! Very happy with this product!!! Great price too. Thanks again Home Depot!!!

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 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.
