Polymeric sand

To cover the spaces among pavers or stones in hardscaping projects like

  • Patios
  • Pathways
  • and driveways

polymeric sand is a sort of joint filler.

Composition of polymeric sand

It is constructed of a blend of fine sand and a polymer component that becomes active when it comes into contact with water. The sand particles are bound together by the polymer component, forming a strong and solid junction that thwarts weed development and erosion.

How much polymeric sand do you required?

The how much polymeric sand do you need is depend upon following factor

  • The size of the area to be covered.
  • the width of the joints between the pavers or stones.
  • and the depth of the joints will all affect.

You can use these common procedures to calculate how much polymeric sand you need:

  • Multiplying the area’s length and width will yield the total square footage that needs to be covered.
  • The paver or stone joints’ width and depth should be measured.
  • For recommended coverage per bag of polymeric sand based on joint width and depth, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • To calculate how many bags of polymeric sand are required, divide the area’s total square footage by the suggested coverage per bag.


Remember that it’s wise to buy a little extra polymeric sand so you have enough for the project and can account for any waste or spills that may occur during installation.
