This high quality limestone sand is the perfect base material for concrete slabs, concrete pavers and natural stone pavers. It compacts extremely well and offers outstanding rigidity and strength. You can use it in place of natural sand for paving. It is categorised as a type of ‘crushed rock sand’ and is a waste product from quarrying.
In the last decade, limestone sand has proven itself to be a viable alternative to natural sand in a wide range of building applications. Not only can it replace natural sand for paving, but it can also replace builder’s sand to provide bulk and strength to materials like concrete. It offers very similar performance in this regard.
Typical applications for this sand include paving, stonework, cement bulking, wall and patio construction, step construction and as a topdressing for driveways. When compacted, the sand performs similarly to solid limestone.
When would you use limestone sand in place of paving sand? Simply when you can’t get a hold of paving sand or when it is cheaper. It is merely a substitute for paving sand, rather than an outright replacement. Both types of sand have their place in your project. We think it’s good to have both types of sand on building projects.
