What is coarse sand?
Coarse sand can also be referred to as grit sand. Washed sharp sand is more coarse than building sands and has much larger particles.
The individual grains are more angular which creates an interlock. This provides added strength for a base layer under paving.
What is coarse sand used for?
Thanks to its angular-shaped grains, coarse sand is the primary ingredient in forming the base underneath driveways, patios, and block paving.
As well as construction jobs, it can also be used for lawn care and in the garden. Why? Because the grains of coarse sand are bigger, contain a low level of silt and clay, and are free-draining. They effectively reduce the amount of water retained which makes this aggregate an ideal foundation layer for patios, paving and landscaping.
