Re: What to put in between pavers?

Have you thought of getting sand (white or other) mixing with some off white cement?

Mix dry, fill gaps, then broom off to the level you want and then mist down with hose. It will set like concrete , hold your pavers and stop weeds growing between pavers. Just a different idea. Rock will stop movement but not weeds. Sharp edge rocks are hard on bare feet and smooth tend to move.

Hi @Dvino77,

 

Good job with getting the pavers down. It's going to look great.

 

In addition to @JDE's helpful advice, let me tag the wonderful @Adam_W to see if he might like to share his thoughts. Adam wrote this very helpful step-by-step guide - How to lay paving for a path.

 

I'll also tag @Yorky88 who also has loads of paving experience.

 

Normally @MitchellMc would be on hand to recommend Bunnings products for you but he is taking a well-earned break at the moment.

Hi @Dvino77 Looks awesome!
Question... have you put anything under each paver to secure them or are they just lain in place?
If you need to lock them in then a thin bed, say 1/2 the paver thickness, of sand & cement would be a good idea and then the gaps could be filled with 'pea' pebbles - rounded, less than 10mm in size.

Otherwise, depending on position - full-sun, shade or whatever - you could consider filling with soil and planting low ground-covers like mini-mondo grass.
