# How do I figure out the amount of filler to use in between pavers?

+4

We're building a 200 square foot flagstone patio. We want to fill the spaces with decomposed granite. How much dg do we need to buy to use as filler? Thank you.

What I would do is measure the thickness of the slab and measure one side of the slab, you then have to decide how wide you want the gap between the slabs.

now let’s say the slab side are 20cm and the thickness is 1cm and the gap is 1cm

20cm X 1cm X 1cm you will need to find the volume of that space on a conversation app. Once you convert it, you need to multiply that X 4 for 4 sides of the slabs, then you need to multiply that X the amount of slabs you have. When all that is done you will have the volume of filler you need to buy

No good pavers move they need to move when walked on you need sand

Buy smaller bags from a place that will refund your money if you don’t need all the bags. Be sure to keep at least one bag in case you have washouts. ☺️
