What is coarse sand?

Sand from a children’s sandpit is generally made up of sand grains between 0.075- 0.425mm. Coarse sand for construction projects however can be made up of particles over 10 times larger, from 2.0- 4.75mm.

The larger grains in coarse sand are sharper and heavier. These irregularly shaped grains have edges that help sand grains to fit together and interlock, adding strength that is essential for a range of construction projects.

What do I need coarse sand for?

Coarse sand is incredibly versatile and as such, is utilised for a wide range of construction and agricultural projects, including:

  • Mixing with water, aggregate, and cement to build concrete structures
  • Bedding pipes and septic tanks
  • Base material for concrete slabs or pavers
  • Traction sand for roads and pavements
  • Creating top dressing material for planting lawns
