A blog reader asked what to use in the joints of PA Blue stone. They had been told they could use: stone dust, small stones or gator dust. All will work! I prefer to use Gator Dust by Alliance. Gator Dust has some great benefits - helps prevents erosion, weeds sprouting throw and damaged caused by insects. Gator dust is like grout or mortar but it never gets hard. Making it easy to remove if needed.
Alliance Gator applications:
Sand joints up to 1 or 1.5 inchs
Dust joints from 1/2 to 4 inchs
How do you install Gator dust? You simply pour onto your stones and brush into all the joints. Mist with water - the product will set up with in time. Its that easy! This can be a little pricy on large jobs but truly worth the investment long term.
