This product is better than we thought

We just put our paving down on terrace and used this pavibg sand between them. We didn't read instructions and it was raining a littlebit so got surprised when next day the sand was set where it got wet the day before. We realised after you use the sand best to not to leave it on blocks, make sure its only in between them, then make the whole paving wet but NOT with high pressure otherwise itt will wash it out. Let it dry and it will set perfectly. If it sets on blocks then you need to scrub it off. Don't know about weed because we just finished 2days ago.
No better than ordinary paving sand

Put sand on newly cleaned paving. Within 2 weeks, weeds had started to re-appear. I think ordinary sand at half the price would do same job.
Don’t waste your money on this it’s rubbish

This is more costly than what I’ve used before. It states to have weed control and it will set.
After a month the weeds are showing and a slight showers of rain washed it all out. Total waste of money as I am going to replace this with my previous cheaper Wicks sand. I have been maintaining my drive for over 20 years and this has never happened before. Thought I was doing good getting an expensive sand. Do not purchase this as it does not do what is says in the advert...
Waste of money

I purchased 4 bags of this to cover a considerable sized area as it claims to 'set hard' and after preparing as directed, applying and waiting for several weeks I now know this to be incorrect. The item is nothing more than silica sand which does not set hard at all and now have grass coming through inbetween paving. I now have a sizable task ahead in which all of this product will need to be blasted out, cleaned away and refilled with a suitable product which does do what it says on the description - DON'T BUY IF YOUR EXPECTING IT TO SET HARD.
