Patio Refresh: Filling Sand Between Bricks

Here’s a question from our 5/25/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Harriet from Pennsylvania asks, “My patios and walkways are brick. The original sand is still between the bricks. What is the best and least expensive ways to fill in between the bricks? I have access to stone dust — or would sand with a binding agent or regular sand be better? Regular sand was originally used.”

We suggest polymeric sand. When polymeric sand gets wet, it can bind together and will help bind together the bricks. First, before application, use a screwdriver to knock out any of the old sand.

Listen above for the answer!
