Coarse sand to suit every project in Warrington

Here at Grundy & Co, we appreciate that no two construction projects are the same. However, coarse sand is one of the most versatile materials we supply – favoured by construction workers, builders, civil engineers, and DIY enthusiasts.

Unlike other types of aggregate, our coarse sand in Warrington has large, angular grains that provide additional strength and reduce the amount of water retained. Perfect for laying the foundations for patio and paving constructions.

Although frequently used as a base material for concrete slabs and flagstones, sand can be mixed with topsoil and mulch to create a top dressing material for lawns. When used in this way, coarse sand in Warrington smoothens the ground whilst improving the soil’s drainage. In some cases, it can promote grass growth, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

Just like the rest of our recycled aggregates, coarse sand can be made from recovered materials, normally taken from demolition sites in the North West.

Once collected, these spoily materials are processed in our on-site sandwashing plant, which removes unwanted particles and impurities and allows the materials to be used again in future projects.

Worried that recycling affects the quality of coarse sand?

With regular testing by an external testing house that demonstrates how we meet tight regulatory specifications – all of our recycled aggregates are suitable for public and government projects.

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

For this reason, it is well suited to a 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

Coarse sand used in construction can be known by multiple names, including:

• Sharp sand

• Grit sand

• Rough sand

• Concreting sand

• Construction sand

This means that if you are looking for ‘coarse sand in Warrington,’ you are likely to find quotes for any of the sands mentioned above and can use them interchangeably, as long as the grain sizes are between 0-6mm.

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

To order, 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.

Unlike fine or play sand designed for children’s play areas and sandpits, coarse sand, also called sharp sand, looks, and feels very different.

While play sand tends to be lightly coloured and has small, round, softer grains, coarse sand has a much larger grain, making it look and feel grittier – more like very fine gravel.

The individual grains of coarse sand are also much sharper and angular– which helps the sand bind and interlock when compressed, increasing the surface strength and making it better suited for construction projects.
