Coarse sand for Runcorn-based projects

Here at Grundy & Co, we have worked in the industry long enough to know that sand is one of, if not, the most versatile materials available – used for construction projects the world over.

Coarse sand has angular grains that give it additional strength. Its larger grain size prevents it from storing water, making it ideal for laying the foundations for patios and pavements.

Our coarse sand in Runcorn is often used as a base material for concrete slabs and flagstones in domestic gardens and commercial environments. However, it can also be combined with topsoil and mulch to create the perfect dressing for grassed areas. When used in this way, coarse sand helps to smoothen the ground whilst improving the soil’s drainage capacity and grass growth.

No matter how big or small your project may be, you can trust that Grundy & Co will deliver the quantity of coarse sand required. And best of all, we can assure you that – just like our other recycled aggregates – it will be washed and screened using our sandwashing equipment!

Are you spending hours trawling the internet for ‘coarse sand near me’ in search of the best prices?

Well, you’re in luck!

Grundy & Co Excavations Ltd supplies recycled aggregates across the North West, including coarse sand, MOT Type 1 and crushed brick.

We reclaim waste materials from construction and demolition sites across Merseyside and bring them back to our 2-million-pound on-site sandwashing plant to wash the products, separating any impurities.

We then store the clean coarse sand and redeliver it to sites as ordered, to Runcorn, Liverpool, Manchester and everywhere in between.

While you may assume all sand looks the same, coarse sand, also called sharp sand, looks very different to fine or play sand.

While play sand tends to be lightly coloured and has small, round grains, coarse sand is grittier, giving the impression of an incredibly fine gravel.

The individual grains of coarse sand are also much larger, with sharper, more angular grains – which helps the sand bind and interlock when compressed, increasing surface strength.

If you need coarse sand for your project, why not call us on 0151 257 8816 or fill in our contact form to receive a no-obligation quote?

Coarse sand is highly compactable, creating a firm, steady surface for further construction work using tools like a plate compactor.

Coarse sand is chosen for building work because of its compactibility and the high strength of the surface that this gives.

Then, it can be used for a wide range of purposes, including:

• Bedding pipes and septic systems

• Concrete slabs or pavers

• Combining with topsoil and mulch for top dressing material for lawns

• Traction sand for roads and pavements- an alternative to gritting salt

• Mixing with water and cement to create ready-mix concrete

For recycled coarse sand direct from our on-site sandwashing plant in Widnes, order today - you can use our quick contact form or email us at and we’ll be in touch to arrange delivery at a date and time that suits you.

Coarse sand, rather unhelpfully, can be known by many names, including sharp, grit, rough, and concreting sand.

This means that if you are online sourcing ‘coarse sand in Runcorn,’ you can use any of the sands mentioned above interchangeably, as long as the grain sizes are between 0-6mm.

Fine sand and pipe bedding sand, on the other hand, are not suitable for the same projects as coarse sand and should be avoided for construction, as it does not compress as well or provide the same strength.

If you are looking for bagged or loose-tipped coarse sand in Runcorn that can be delivered in as little as 48 hours – reach out today.

You can call us today on 0151 257 8816 or email us at with your project requirements and we’ll do everything we can to help.
