Grit Sand Suppliers In Manchester and Lancashire

Greenvale carries a range of products used for both gardening and construction purposes. Also known as Sharp Sand, Grit Sand has a variety of construction and gardening uses. It is larger grained and heavier than regular sand and can be mixed with soil in small proportions to improve drainage. If your container plants require extra drainage, you can add a small amount of grit sand at the bottom of the pot.

Grit Sand or Sharp Sand comes primarily from quartz rock. It is particularly valued because of its low clay content. At only 3% percent the clay content of Grit Sand is considerable lower than many other sands. As experienced gardeners know too well, clay soils can be problematic; they do not drain well and they can clump together and harden—both of which are problems you want to avoid in the garden and when choosing an aggregate.
