Also known as ‘grit sand’ or ‘concrete sand’, sharp sand is more coarse and has larger particles than other construction sands such as soft/ builder’s sand, which consists of finer grains
Typically, sharp sand is used within applications where more strength and less flexibility is required. It is ideal for mixing concrete and is commonly used for floor screeds and laying paving courses. In addition to construction projects, sharp sand can also be used as a top dressing for lawns, in general landscaping and in seed composts, because it enables moisture movement.
