Sand is very versatile and a common main component of many landscape projects.
Uses for Sand:
- Between Pavers - sand is often used to provide leveling beneath pavers and to fill spaces between pavers. This helps to prevent shifting and breaking of the pavers and makes a paver walkway much more stable.
- Concrete - sand can also be used for making certain types of concrete because of its coarseness. Concrete then can be used to create walkways, outdoor seating areas, garden edging, steps, and so much more.
- Children’s Play Area - sand makes the perfect medium for play boxes and for under play equipment. The medium or coarse reduces tracking from play areas.
- Outdoor Sports Play Area - Play sand is one of the softest sands and often used in sand boxes. It also can also be used for a soft playing surface for outdoor sports like volleyball and beach ball. Sometimes it may be beneficial to apply a layer of gravel underneath a thick layer of sand to provide better durability.
