SANDS

Sand is processed in many ways!
It is washed so the grains can be fine to course and consistent in size, they are suitable for mixing concrete, grouts, paving, tiling, filtration or propagating.
It can also be blended with clay and silt to produce brick sand for mixing mortar, the color and texture will depend on where the sand is quarried from.
Less refined sands are used as packing sand for under concrete slabs and bedding pipes.
Sand is a natural product and its color shading and texture will always slightly vary.
