Polymeric Sand Suggestion and Supplier

Hi all,

I'm planning to redo the joints of my paver walkway and a stone patio in my backyard. Weeds are overtaking. I'm planning to power wash and remove any weeds, then apply polymeric sand.

I was wondering which brand of polymeric sand to use. I've been told the big box store ones are terrible, but I don't know where to get the better brands. I'm located in the GTA.

Thank you!

I recently redid the interlock on my front walkway and bought some polymeric sand from Rona and it's crap. It doesn't even harden and I've already had to refill it in patches because it's sunk or blown away.

You can get it a Farmer Jacks (Stouffville) or Mr.Bin (Scarborough). Pretty expensive, but worth every penny.
I used G2 as well but not Gator Maxx. I used Supersand.

Here's a quick article of the difference.

I bought mine from Rock Valley in Vaughan. If it's too far for you, I would give a couple of landscaping companies a call.
