We have this paviour block paving which has been washed with
a power washer, this has resulted in the loss of the sand which is used as
a grout between them. Could anyone advise what type of sand or filling
should be used to replace it. Any help appreciated.
============It's actually called 'Block paving sand' and it's sold by that name (in
bags) at Wickes, etc. It's a very fine kiln dried sand which you pour onto
the paving and then brush in with a soft sweeping brush. A very tedious job
requiring a dry surface and a dry day.
I'm wondering what kind of sand the paving guys use. Sharp sand possibly?
They certainly don't get it in bags, I've seen them shovelling from a pile
obviously delivered by a tipper. Which makes a mockery of kiln drying.
I bet it's hideously expensive to buy in bags as well.
