Garden Sand: White Sand (Silica Sand)
A ‘pure’ silica sand from the foothills of Mid Canterbury. Used to achieve a white mortar for lighter-colour bricks. Can be used for those ‘special’ sandpits! Great for fish tanks.
Coloured Sand: Golden Sand
Gold-coloured sand from Oamaru. Used to achieve a gold-coloured mortar for Oamaru or light-colour blocks and bricks. Can be used for ‘special’ sandpits. (Note: can cause some staining.)
Landscaping Sand: Brick Sand
A grey-coloured fine sand. Mainly used by bricklayers for a grey mortar.
Landscaping & Garden Sand: Plastering Sand
Grey medium sand. A general purpose sand used for plastering and concrete work and to improve drainage on lawns and gardens. Used as a bedding sand and under pavers. The most popular sand for sandpits (drains well, does not stain). Recommended for schools, preschools and playcentres.
