Unlike grit sand, soft building sand is all about smooth finishes and ease of use.

Super friendly to work with, bulk bags of fine sand are typically mixed with other building essentials to create sturdy, durable materials, with its most common use lying in bricklaying - you can whip up bricklaying mortar in an instant, simply by mixing building sand, cement and water. It can also fill structures and create a basis for bedding slabs and paving.

Its characteristic softness and fine composition make for a super smooth finish, meaning you get a uniform result every time.

It is this same softness and consistent quality and colour which makes soft building sand perfect for decorative purposes, with some people using it to achieve a powdery beach aesthetic in their very own back garden - who needs a holiday?

We deliver high-quality soft building sand to domestic and commercial construction sites all over the UK.

Weight may vary by +/- 5%. 


Soft Building Sand Applications

Soft building sand is an essential building aggregate on a lot of sites and is one of the vital ingredients in mortar used to glue bricks together.


We recommend this product for labourers who need to create a large amount of mortar in a short time frame for joining, pointing and plastering projects. In this case, heavy-duty mixing machinery and equipment is required. 


Soft building sand is suitable for a range of building applications including: 

  • General building and landscaping projects
  • Pointing applications 
  • Decorative applications - providing colour and texture to garden displays and waterworks
  • Bricklaying and brickwork
  • Under slabs 
  • Rendering 


Soft Building Sand Features 

Our customers can expect high-quality raw materials with each building sand bulk bag. 

It should be noted that because of its natural sourcing, the sand retains moisture, which means that it might weigh 5% more or less than expected; a single bag contains approximately 800kg. 

Let's check the features below: 

  • Comprised of fine sand and clay particles
  • Locally sourced from seabeds in quarries
  • Commonly mixed with water and cement to create concrete and bricklaying mortar
  • Easy to install - builders can simply cut the bags down the middle and spread the sand into place
  • Weight may vary depending on moisture content


Soft Building Sand Benefits

There is no limit to the number of tasks that labourers can accomplish with a single bulk bag. 

One of the biggest benefits of soft sand is that it is multi-purpose; construction professionals cannot build a house without it and landscapers also use it to create stylish designs. 


Let's check the benefits below: 

  • Fine sand guarantees smooth surfaces
  • Easy to work with 
  • The colour of the sand is uniform - perfect for decorative displays
  • Contains natural, raw materials that are sourced from seabeds
  • Bricklaying mortar can easily be made if you mix building sand, cement and water


Building Sand Near Me

At Materials Market, we know how difficult it is to get high-quality materials delivered. Whether you want one building sand bulk bag or ten, we can deliver your order on a date that suits you, whether that be to a domestic property or commercial premises.
