Interlock driveway skirt. Keeping sweep sand in inside joints.

Just wondering if anyone has any tricks to keeping the sweep sand in the inside joints of a, soon to be asphalted, driveway. Cant put snap edge. Tried Duct tape, not effective. ????

Why not just sand it after the blacktop goes in

Can you caulk the joints to just below surface level so you don't see the caulk?

sounds cheaper to go back. What are the chances of disruption from the asphalt guys?

Have you thought about polymetric (sp?) sand? When you wet it down it's supposed to stay where it's put.

Don't wait til after paving cause the asphalt will be part of the inside of the brick. Just over sweep the edges making sure its all full of sand, make sure its hardened and when they prep for the asphalt they'll have to remove the excess sand. Hopefully your sand will stay in the joints.
What stone are you using? We usually cut out brick tight and there isn't big gaps to start with....

The sand should stay. Like if you ever tried to replace a damaged paver that sand is hard to get outa there

I'm surprised so many of you do the skirting first. We have had nothing but problems with doing it that way. Either the asphault company shifts our pavers or they get asphault on the surface of them.
