    Default Old Brick Pavers

    Hi. Have used old hand made brick for a rustic paving area. I used sand as the mortar and had filled all gaps and settled in all of the bricks, feeling pretty good about it. The wheels fell off today. A huge down pour has washed about 80% of the sand away. What about a cement/sand mortar. Any suggestions appreciated. Gaps vary between 10-3mm.

    Have you thought of using this instead of straight sand? Not used it myself but have used a similar product.
