Fill Sand Description

Fill Sand, also known as Backfill Sand or Utility Sand, is a versatile construction and landscaping material. Usually available in shades of tan to light brown, Fill Sand is primarily used for backfilling trenches or holes, leveling ground, serving as a base for pavers or pool liners, and for mixing into concrete. Its gritty, granular texture allows for excellent drainage and compaction, making it a reliable choice for various construction and landscaping applications. While Fill Sand is low-maintenance once in place, regular checks are recommended in erosion-prone areas to ensure stability. Available in bulk and year-round, Fill Sand continues to be a staple in residential, commercial, and construction settings.
