Finish ideas cobble stone patio
I installed a loose lay paver patio about two years ago. I used 8"x8" dark gray cobble stone pavers. It is holding up great, maintaining its base, and overall level. My only problem is the finish grouting. I added fine sand to it and swept it in really good. I looked great, but every since I am constantly sweeping loose sand from the surface, and the sand is eroding away from the joints. What can I do to keep the sand in or should I use a different method altogether?

guys here're using something call'd ' polymeric ' sand for filling those jnts,,, no personal experience but it evidently has some ' hold ' & resists sanding,,, think apron stores sell it.

Polymeric sand, I think I looked for that at the local Lowes, but all they had was the "special" paver sand. I will look around to see what I can find.
