Hey folks,

I'm a DIYer putting in my first brick patio at the house.

The outfit i'm buying the pave edge from said I should use only a 1/2 inch of screed sand ... they say it's better in our frigid climate.

The recommendation differs from what I've read here so I thought I'd ask what you folks thought.

Thanks!! in-advance for any/all replies.

Just use 1"... I'm not sure what climate has to do with it...?

Ditto, use the inch...solid enough but forgiving enough

I live in Michigan which also gets cold, 1" is the norm and always works.
