Just finished this yesterday.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh....Aa?dl=0

I am going to seal the limestone edging and the compass stone circle with lithofin a few dryt days and nights after I've jetwashed (waiting for the washer to be repaired)

I'm curious to know what the coverage is of sealant on aggregate. Customer and I really like the wet look so would like to seal the red granite aggregate. Front garden certainly but ideally rear also. Wondering if anyone has any idea of how much sealant aggregate like granite will soak use up per m2?

Cheers

FB you will waste so much sealer trying to seal aggregate, wouldn't bother, plus it would never look right due to it moving, some bits sealed, some not etc if you see what I mean?

Sorry for late reply.

Thanks guys. Was a bar steward of a job due to the damn heat.

Re sealant, yeah I had come to same conclusions re the turning etc. Gonna have to make do with just sealing the black limestone and stone compass. Couple of little tweaks to the grass here and there required.

I've been delayed as the company supposedly repairing jetwasher have had it 1 month now and refuse to take calls or respond to emails and they've put the phone down on me lol. Never experienced anything like it in my life. Probably going to sue. I've had to buy another jetwasher to see me by for a while. Unbelievable.
