Whether as the protective layer for a stunning pond or water feature, a charming play area for your children, or to easily mix mortar and concrete for a grand building project, we’ve got you covered when it comes to sand. Here you’ll find both sharp sand and washed building sand which have some distinct differences.
Sharp sand, sometimes called coarse sand is perfect for laying patios, and other external paving jobs. This gritty sand has numerous applications in building and is also great as a gardening tool - helping to make clay soils more hospitable.
Building sand (sometimes called soft sand) is better suited for mixing, to create mortar, used for bricklaying or rendering.
