We stock a wide range of high-quality and cost-effective sand products suitable for various requirements. Our sand products typically come in poly bags (25KG) for smaller projects or bulk bags (minimum fill 800KG) for larger projects.
Our comprehensive range includes our popular and competitively priced sharp sand, building sand, plastering sand, and kiln dried sand.

It’s very important to choose the correct sand product for your end-use. For example, sharp sand is based used as part of a base under driveways, patios, artificial grass, or block paving, where a layer of hard or MOT is used, then topped with a layer of sand and compacted. Whereas building sand is a finer grade and is mixed with water and cement to make mortar. Plastering sand has much finer particles and therefore is used for internal and external rendering and plasterwork. Finally, kiln dried sand is brushed into the joints of paving slabs to help repel water and preserve the position of the slabs.

Unsure of how much sand, slate, or gravel you’ll need? Our handy aggregate calculator can assist.
