Pit sand

The fine sand is most often used as a binding material – pit sand mixes with less moisture than other sands, so it can withstand the weight of heavier bricks and other materials without losing its form. Other common uses include:

  • block laying
  • rendering and bagging walls
  • grouting
  • kids’ sand pits
  • top dressing for lawns, especially golf and bowls clubs.

Topsoil (organic)

Topsoil is the outermost layer of earth, where plants draw their nutrients from in order to grow and thrive. Organic topsoil is simply soil excavated from a site and delivered as is, often used to fill or level other excavation or construction sites. Natural topsoil can contain pieces of debris, like plant roots and other weeds. For gardening purposes, screened top soil is generally recommended.

Screened topsoil

Plant growth is strongest when topsoil is screened to remove debris and other barriers preventing nutrients from reaching plants and establishing roots. Screened topsoil can be combined with fertilisers, compost and other mixes for a wide range of uses, including:

  • garden bed growth and maintenance
  • lawn preparation and improving soil health
  • vegetable gardens
  • flower pots
  • creating a base for garden paths or walkways.
