Hi

I have a front driveway with cobble lock/block paving. Weeds are always coming up and I want to get it sorted. I've bought Resiblock Block Paving Sealer but I want to know what is the best sand (or other) product to fill the gaps after power washing the weeds etc?

From reading the site, it seems that Rompox Easy will do the job

But I just want to know if a wet based one would be better?
Like VDW 815 plus

Just regular Kiln Dried Sand if you are going to be using Resiblock as a sealer

Thanks. Like Jointex Biosand? Is there a similar equivalent which is a darker colour?

Looks like a lot of money for what it is? KDS with a weed inhibitor and does it work? I don't know not used that one.
As I said, seeing as you are sealing the paving then regular kiln dried sand nothing fancy, just make sure it is dry and not got damp or wet before being sold.

I know this is an old post however if you haven't got round to completing this yet standard Kiln dried sand is all you need.

Whatever Resiblock product you have purchased for your area the sealant will solidfy the sand joint and prevent future weed growth ant infestation etc.
The sand joint once set does not allow the weed roots to penetrate through the sand joint.
Kind regards
