What is coarse sand?

Also referred to as grit sand, coarse sand is ideal for various construction projects due to its increased grain size – up to 10 times larger than standard play sand.

This heavier sand also has sharper edges that promote advanced interlocking – increasing the strength of the foundations in construction projects.

This enhanced strength makes it ideal for a range of construction and horticultural projects, including (but not limited to):

  • Laying a base material for concrete slabs or natural stone paving
  • Mixing with water, aggregate, and cement to create concrete
  • Increasing traction on roads and pavements – particularly by using gritting machines in the winter
  • Creating top dressing materials and improving drainage for lawns and composts
  • Bedding pipes and septic tanks for installation
  • Blending floor screeds
  • Crafting mortar mixes – commonly used for bricklaying and pointing

Its increased versatility makes coarse sand a popular aggregate used by many professions and industries – from construction teams to laypeople completing home DIY, civil engineers, and general builders to landscape gardeners.
