Like its name suggests this sand is used for paving and compaction. Similar to the Washed River Sand in its properties, Paving/Compaction Sand is a course sand that compacts down firm whilst still allowing for drainage and flexibility.
Fill Sand is a recycled by product of crushed bricks, tiles, concrete etc. It is suitable for use as a base for concrete, paving and paths as it compacts down solid. It is also useful for filling in trenches around pipes but is too course to fill around electrical conduit.
Also known as Concrete Mix, Sand & Gravel Mix is a blend of natural Blue Metal and Washed River Sand that can be mixed with cement to make concrete and core fill for retaining wall blocks.
Special Fill Sand is a natural granular washed sand, comprised of very fine crushed minerals. It can be used as a clean fill for concreting, paving, levelling and to fill in trenches.
Sydney Sand is a washed fine sand that comes from the Sydney beaches. It is very versatile, and due to the absence of clay content, it can be used for applications which range from filling a sand pit, to tiling, rendering and sweeping into the gaps between pavers.
Our own special blend of course natural sands that is used predominantly for horse trotting tracks, arenas, etc. and paving. Warradale Blend provides the perfect mixture between stability and flexibility. Its course grains lock in together like no other sand, providing a solid base and keeping dust to a minimum, yet the blend is still flexible and workable enough that it does not damage horse hooves and pavers lock into it with ease.
Washed River Sand is a course washed sand that is dredged locally from the Nepean River and then thoroughly washed. It is an ideal base for paving as it compacts to form a sturdy yet flexible base. Washed River Sand also drastically reduces efflorescence in pavers (salt leaching through the pavers), due to the intense washing process.
White Brickie Sand is a ‘fatty’ sand most commonly used for brick and block work. ‘Fatty’ sand refers to the high clay content in the sand, which repels water (like fat) allowing the sand to become stickier and more workable when mixed with cement. The standard ratio for White Brickie Sand mortar is 6 parts sand to 1 part cement.
Yellow Brickie Sand is a ‘fatty’ sand most commonly used for brick and block work. ‘Fatty’ sand refers to the high clay content in the sand, which repels water (like fat) allowing the sand to become stickier and more workable when mixed with cement. The standard ratio for Yellow Brickie Sand mortar is 6 parts sand to 1 part cement.
