Types Of Sand

With many different types of sand available, it’s important to choose the correct product for your project. Here’s a brief explanation of the types of sand that we supply.

Building Sand

Building sand is a soft, multipurpose material used in construction. This includes bricklaying, pointing, rendering, block paving and general building usage.

Other names for building sand: Soft sand, plasterer’s sand or bricklayer’s sand.

Sharp Sand

Sharp sand is versatile and can be used when laying paving courses, mixed with concrete, added to soil, render and floor screeds and even used in lawn care.

In comparison to builders sand, sharp sand contains larger particles and is more coarse and gritty in terms of texture.

Other names for sharp sand: Concreting sand, coarse sand or grit sand.

Kiln Dried Sand

Kiln dried sand is fine, as well as being dry with no moisture content. This type of sand is used to fill the joints between paving slabs and block paving.

As well as preventing paving from movement and becoming loose, this sand still allows drainage.

Other names of kiln dried sand: Jointing sand, dry aggregate sand or silver sand.

Sand and Gravel Mix (Ballast)

Ballast is a mix of sand and gravel, and can be used for many types of building applications and landscaping projects.

This includes paving, concrete for path edging, garden walls, stepping stones, curbs plus much more.

Generally mixed with cement and water to create concrete, ballast is a strong and cost-effective material.
