Here is another outdoor pool/deck area we recently completed in Lake Forest, IL. For materials, we went with Unilock Brussels in the full, half and XL sizes for a random pattern. Bull nose copping in Unilock smooth finish. For sand, we installed Techniseal NextGel Polymeric Sand and for polymeric sand application: rubber plated light weight compactor. Multiple passes with a dry surface so that sand settles to the bottom.
Time: 3 weeks for brick work, grading the soil, install grass, drainage under walk, plants and sealer
Sealer: Sure bond with anti fungal, not only brings out the color, keeps the color longer but enhances and makes polymeric sand stronger
