    Hey guys,
    Got a bid where the customer has tons of weeds coming through the pavers. He wants it weeded and wants me to sweept sand into the cracks. Its about 300 sq ft.
    He called his wife while I was there and she kept asking so its going to be permanent, its going to be sealed? He thinks the sand will help a lot, but it got me thinking, is there another better service I could offer? Can you apply a product that will seal the pavers?
    thanks so much

    Kill the weeds, clean out the joints, sand and seal.

    Clean out the joints and use poly. It won't keep the weeds out 100%, but is a lot better than sand for it

    Im charging them $200 to sweep sand into the 300sq ft walkway. including materials and labor. I think I need 1.5 gallons of sealant, but they need it done beginning of this week, so I need to get something from home depot I think

    I specified mason sand. I know about poly sand, but I am not a hardscaper... I do not know which product to use in this application.
