Sharp sand bulk bag is a highly versatile material suitable for both construction and decorative projects. Sharp sand, otherwise known as grit sand, features very little silt and clay and sharp angular grains, as opposed to smooth round ones. Each grain of sand ranges anywhere from 0 to 4mm in diameter; this large grain size and angular nature of sharp sand render it ideal for drainage on lawns and in landscaping projects. Sharp sand is also a suitable aggregate for block paving and patios; combined with cement and mortar, sharp sand makes for an excellent stiff mortar mix. On top of sharp sand's versatility, it is also highly cost-effective. Please note, as the sand is sourced from seabeds, moisture can affect the mass of each bag, by as much as 5% either way.

Product Description

Bulk Bag of Sharp Sand Applications


Each sharp sand bulk bag contains between 850kg and 1 ton of grit sand. In general building projects, coarse sand is often mixed with cement and water to create concrete which can then be used as mortar in block paving.  

However, you might need more than one sharp sand bulk bag for mixing (possibly a second bag or three), as concrete is comprised of three parts aggregate material and one part cement. 

On the whole, sharp sand's versatility knows no bounds; it can be used to strengthen block paving, driveways, and paths on a structural level. 

Our bulk sharp sand is ideal for both domestic and commercial projects such as: 

  • Block paving
  • Patios
  • Driveways
  • Laying slabs
  • Paths
  • Concrete mixing - mixed with gravel and cement
  • Constructing floor screeds
  • External rendering
  • Lime pointing work


Sharp Sand Bulk Bag Features 

Sharp sand, often referred to as concrete sand or grit, has a gritty texture with lots of large grains that makes it perfect for a range of construction tasks. 

Let's check the features and many benefits: 

  • Suitable for screeding, block and slab laying applications and concrete mixing
  • Perfect for use with bulky construction materials like screeds
  • Multi-functional - both decorative (with consistent colour) and functional 
  • Ideal for general building and landscaping projects alike 
  • Locally sourced
  • Weight may vary depending on moisture content
  • Coverage will be dependent on depth laid and ground conditions 


Sharp Sand Weight

Our excellent sharp sand bulk bag contains between 850kg and 1 ton of good quality, sharp aggregate materials - proper grit sand, as it should be. Builders' sand comes from large quarries and riverbeds.

The sand is put through as few manufacturing processes as possible to ensure our customers get the raw, natural benefits. However, this also means that there might be some excess moisture in our sharp sand bulk bags.

Because of this, customers should expect the weight of our bulk bags to fluctuate by 5% on either side. This is an important consideration for small teams who need to be prepared to manoeuvre heavy weights around their construction site with specific equipment.
