I know this is a "done deal" and was even as PSU wrote it, but thought I'd add a small tidbit just for general information. I mentioned already about our patio at our lake house that I polymer sanded 10 years ago. About two years later, I also laid a circle of pavers and a firepit, plain sanded. I just this week pressure washed both. While there are a few small, shallow weeds in the polymer sanded patio, the fire pit was an amazing mass of inter-twining small roots and growth. Tap roots from weeds even twisted around pavers and a thousand small roots, apparently from a tree (there are similar cedars near the patio) infiltrated. Not visible or obvious from above, but clearly growing for some time and likely to be a major problem down the road if not dealt with. The cleaning of the firepit area took 4-5 times as long, despite being a third the size. My time is worth something, I have resanded with polymer sand, both. Although the patio only took a fraction of the original amount of polymer sand. I'm now convinced, poly it is. Although, I totally agree with PSU, if selling the place in the next couple years, use regular sand. For what it's worth.Best wishes,Lakedog
