How Much Cement and Sand do I Need for Jointing Patio Slabs

by Cornealia » Thu Nov 21, 2019 7:58 pm

Hi,

New here, joined about 3 seconds ago and have a question that google and my parents cant answer. How many bags/kg/whatever of sand and cement do I need to fill in the gaps between my paving slabs?

Hi

It really depends on a few things; type of slabs, location etc...

We do have a project covering this subject that may help you out, although the method described below is really suited to dry conditions, so if you are thinking of doing it this time of year, it may be worth waiting:

Hope this helps

why does location make a difference? I will be using https://www.diy.com/departments/grey-pe ... 829_BQ.prd

and i'll be doing this in March not Winter

Hi

Temperatures vary depending on what area of the country you are in which can affect drying times

Kind Regards
