Sharp sand is ideal for building work and construction use. Our sand is perfect for mortar work and mixing with concrete for a wide range of construction applications. Also known as ‘grit sand’ or ‘concrete sand’, sharp sand is coarser than builders’ sand thanks to its larger particles. Having a larger grain size means sharp sand is slightly heavier, giving the mortar more strength yet making it less flexible to work with. Most people use sharp sand over builders’ sand for floor screeds, fine concrete work and laying paving courses. In addition, sharp sand can also be used as a top dressing for lawns, as it provides good drainage.
Available for delivery or collection from our Sandbach yard in loose tipped loads or bulk bags.
