Coarse sand to suit every Liverpool-based project

Here at Grundy & Co, we understand that sand is one of the most useful and versatile materials – used by construction workers, general builders, civil engineers, and homeowners undertaking DIY projects.

Unlike other aggregates, the individual grains in coarse sand are angular, which provides extra strength. Its larger grain size also reduces the amount of water retained, making it the ideal foundation layer for paving and patio construction.

Aside from being used as a base material for concrete slabs, flagstones and block paving, coarse sand in Liverpool is commonly mixed with topsoil and mulch to create a top dressing material for lawns. This effectively smoothens the ground while improving the soil’s drainage and boosting the growth of grass.

Regardless of the volume you require for your project in Liverpool, you can trust that our coarse sand is washed and screened using our sandwashing plant worth over £2 million.

Frequently Asked Questions

Coarse sand has many alternative names within the construction industry, including sharp, grit, rough, and concreting sand. As such, no matter what coarse sand you need, you can use any of the other sands mentioned above interchangeably, as long as the grain sizes are between 0-6mm.

Fine sand and pipe bedding sand are not suitable for coarse sand projects and should be avoided.

Unlike fine or play sand, which is lightly coloured, small, round-grained, coarse sand can look very different. It is generally gritty and has larger, more angular grains that can look more like very fine gravel than sand. The sharp, angular grains of coarse sand help them to bind together well and give them an increased surface strength, making them ideal for construction projects.

To order coarse sand for your project, give us a call on 0151 257 8816 or fill in our contact form and we’ll do everything we can to help.

All sand, from play to coarse sand, is permeable because it has a very low density and has lots of air pockets between the particles – which means it can be easily penetrated by water.

The permeability of sand encourages water to drain away, stopping it from collecting and flooding, making it an excellent option for construction, landscaping, and gardening projects. For recycled coarse sand from our on-site sandwashing plant, order today.

Coarse or sharp sand is ideal for a range of construction uses, thanks to its increased strength and drainage capabilities. This includes:

  • Mixing concrete or mortar
  • Floor screeds
  • Laying paving
  • Top dressing for lawns – in landscaping and seed composts

    While not flexible, coarse sand has jagged or angular edges of the grains that help them interlock and give them a high strength, perfect for construction use. If you want to know more, you can read about our recycled coarse sand.
