Compactable Bedding Paver Sand

Compactable Bedding Paver Sand contains more fines than a mortar sand.  Using compaction tools like a walk-behind vibrating plate compactor is ideal for larger areas and hand tamper for constricted areas. This is an important step to insure a solid foundation for paver and flagstone patios and pathways.
