Washed Concrete Sand can be used anywhere coarse-textured sand is specified. It can be mixed into native clay-based soils along with organic matter to alleviate compaction and improve porosity. It is one of the primary coarse-textured sands A-1 Soils uses in its custom soil mixes when weight is not an issue. Uses of concrete sand have included, backfilling of palms, horse arenas, base under pavers, and mixing with cement and aggregate for concrete work.
