With its coarse, gritty texture, Sharp Sand is also often referred to as builders’ sand. It is 0-4mm in size, with a higher percentage of large grains.

It is versatile, with a number of applications, including mixing with concrete, smoothing floors and screeding, loosening heavier soils (such as those with a high clay content) and for the laying of block paving and slabs.

We also provide a broad range of other sand products, including:

  • As dug sand
  • Washed Building Sand, which is finer and provides a smoother finish required for mortar
  • Washed Sand for top dressing
  • Washed Rootzone Sand
  • Dry Screened Building Sand
  • Screened Pit Sand
  • Grit Sand (graded to 4mm)
