A general purpose sand which has a multitude of uses. 

Can be used as:

  • a component for mixing concrete
  • a jointing sand to be swept in between pavers for pave jointing at the end of your paving project
  • a mortar sand
  • a turf or lawn sand for sports fields and home grasses to increase drainage
  • a landing medium of sand for school long jump pits

this sand is widely used in the building industry. Commonly referred to as #1 sand, this is a grey coloured river sand.

Size: Graded between 0.15mm - 2.36mm

When used as a paver jointing sand some contractors also order bags of cement and mix it at a ratio of 6 parts sand to 1 part cement (must let the building sand dry first on a good day) and brush them together in between the pavers. The cement then sets creating a hardened mortar / joint between pavers over time. Of course you can wet down the gaps also after sweeping the sand and cement mix in the gap to hasten the process as well.
