    Yes swept before damping with a bit of water.

    May be I was bit harsh so will brush bit gentle.


    It took me 2 hrs to do 2 meter area including mixing of sand and cement.

    Still 38 meter to go.



    One more question. I was in toolstation. I found something called water proofer in liquid form. Why people use it? Should I not use it as well?

    I've not used a water proofing product on paving pointing.

    I used a lot of PVA in mixes for slate and Indian stone to give better suction.

    Okay great.

    Pointing looks solid and beautiful now.

    Do you guys water pointing after 24 hours or leave as it is?

    Could we walk after a week as we got kids? Will it settle in 5 days.

    You can wet it again ,won't harm it.
    When the joints are hard it's done.

    I love reclaimed brick paths paved areas.
    They are a garden delight.
    Sounds like your doing fine so far.
