Soils and Stone offer a full range of sands and ballast for all types of building project.
Sands and ballasts can be supplied in the loose or in industry standard bulk bags, delivered via grab, tipper or hiab crane off-load.
Sharp washed sand has a variety of uses and is a standard across the construction and landscaping industry. A naturally occurring product, it consists of angular particles that are ideal for drainage solutions. Landscapers particularly value it for its low clay content. It is widely used for laying block paving, screeding or other building projects.
Soils and Stone’s fine-grained soft sand (also known builders sand) is suitable for bricklaying, rendering and pointing.
This is a mixture of sharp sand and 20mm gravel. Widely used in concrete mixes, this is ideal for concrete drives and concrete base slabs. The high fines content means it is not suitable in drainage applications.
A naturally occurring crushed granite that ranges in size from dust to 2mm and 0-5mm, this is ideal as a bedding layer for block paving.
Self-binding gravel is a versatile and hard-wearing aggregate that combines the traditional look of gravel with a firm finish. Fine textured (typically 10mm to dust), it is laid on top of a firm hardcore base, such as MOT 1 or MOT 3. Once compacted down, it is an ideal material for footpaths and cycleways.
