Concrete Sand 

We stock Concrete Sand which might also be called Sharp Sand, Coarse Sand and Pit Sand.

Ideal for screeds, renders or concrete, concrete sand can also be used when laying slabs or block paving. Alternatively, concrete sand can be sprinkled and forked in to peat and compost for root cuttings and propagating cuttings as it can improve the soil’s overall drainage.
