Paver Joint Sand

Paver Joint Sand

Joint sand between your pavers at the correct height/depth is very important.

The ICPI or the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute has specific guidelines to the size of the sand or gradation as well as the proper height of the sand joints.

Joint sand not only contributes to keeping insects and weeds out, but stabilizes or ‘locks’ the pavers together.

Paver joint sand also encourages water to run over the surface of the pavers rather than down the joints causing undermining of the bedding sand and base.
