    Default How many bags of Polymeric sand do I need?

    I'm installing regular concrete pavers soon in our frontyard and it's going to be about 550sq ft. How many bags of Polymeric sand will I need? The one's I find here at homedepot are 50lbs per bag. Unfortunately it's the quickrete stuff. I don't know where to find the better brands like alliance or Techniseal here in Arizona :(

    Go online and look for Belgard, Unilock, Techno, VersaLok or some other manufacturer of pavers and look for dealers in your area. Once you find a dealer they will most likely have quality polymeric sand.

    As for quantity, it will depend on the type of paver you are using and the joint widths between pavers.

    You can expect about 60sq. ft. per bag.

    Really? I have never used holland stone, but I was hoping for closer to 100 sqft for those tight joints.

    I mean buy 7 and if you have too much take one back at your convienence instead of running for one extra one and blaming zedo for not giving sound advice. :)

    We have never done better than 60-70 per bag. No matter what kind of paver we have used.
