  1. Hi Paul,

    Great question – yes, we have. What I would have done different is put in the polymeric sand, I will show you why… we basically have a front yard on our bricks now. πŸ˜› If we would have put in the polymeric sand that I did buy, we wouldn’t have the issues with weeds.

    I plan on redoing the rest of the crooked bricks in the lower area soon, and will definitely use the polymeric sand in the last 1/2 inch or so – to avoid the weeds next year. Eventually, I’ll do the whole front with it as well. People say the polymeric is awesome, but I haven’t tried it yet.

    Bricks Now

  2. I’m so glad this is giving you hope! πŸ™‚ Depending on where you live and how much the soil tends to shift, it should be okay. If you are in a very wet area and your patio is on a slope of any kind, you may see some of that sand leak off if you’re not using more gravel (lowering the pavers again). My husband said in response to your question that it will make a big difference on how well you tamp it, and you may even consider renting a motorized tamper. We have actually seen a slight dip again over the last year but not much, maybe 1/8 of an inch or so. I actually plan to do the rest of the bricks here soon when the heat calms down some. I can post an updated picture as well so you can see how much it’s dropped. In the area where the bricks have to slope up to meet the porch the sand has kind of leaked out of those, because they are at a weird angle so the water seems to irrigate the sand out. Overall, I’m still really happy with it though.

    I hope that helps!
