Builder’s Sand (sometimes referred to as Plasterer, Mason or Bricklayer Sand) is a finer grade sand with smaller particles, mixed with water and cement to make the mortar for laying bricks among other uses.
Sand is hugely important in paving work and is used twice, quite differently, during the process. So whether you need paving sand, filler sand or bedding sand for your paving jobs, we will be able to advise you on the best solution to your project needs.
Plastering Sand / Sharp Sand
Sharp sand has a more coarse texture than more common “soft sand.” Unlike the fine grain sand used to cement bricks together, sharp sand or plastering sand has a thicker grain and usually a gritty texture. Plastering sand has many uses, plastering being the obvious one, but sharp sand can also be added to soil to create potting soil or to loosen clay soil.
