Sharp sand is perfect for laying pavement and soft sand is ideal for brick laying. We offer soft sand, sharp sand or a 50/50 combination, depending on your preferences.

Concrete Ballast

Ballast aggregate is a combination of sharp sand and stones, used for a large range of landscaping projects. Ballast is a common concrete aggregate.

Perfect for garden paths and driveways, 10mm gravel or ‘pea shingle’ is often used for decorative use. We offer 10mm or 20mm gravel, or a mixture.

20mm gravel is a popular driveway gravel that is considered very affordable and cost-effective. We offer 20mm or 10mm gravel, or a mix of both.
