## How many bags will i need for a 37 square ft. area?

According to the specs, each bag contains a volume of 4*8*15=480 cubic inches of sand. If you plan to spread a 1 inch layer of sand over 37 square feet, then you are going to need 37*12*12=5328 cu inches of sand, which means you will need 5328/480=11.1 bags. Since you cannot buy a partial bag, you will need 12 bags of sand.

## How many bags equals 5 yards?

How many bags equals 5 yards?
Geez...this question and several others apparently needs a convenient 'cube' calculator. One cubic yard equals 3 feet times 3 feet times 3 feet....length, width, height of one cubic yard. So one cubic yard equals 27 cubic feet (3 x 3 x 3), and there's 0.5 cubic feet to each bag... uh, 27 divided by 0.5 equals 54 bags to one cubic yard. Check me out, and see if I've done this right, because then there would be 270 bags needed to equal 5 cubic yards ( 54 X 5). Can I get a job with HD teaching math

## How many bags will i need to use for leveling a 15' diameter above ground pool?

This depends on how level the area is you are placing the pool. As a general rule, 1&quot; of sand will satisfy most pool manufacturer's requirements. Square footage of a circle is the radius (squared) x 3.14. So the radius of your 15 ' diameter is 7.5&quot; (squared) = 56.25 x 3.14 = 176 square feet So a 1&quot; deep base will require (30) bags of sand. I hope this helps!

## Is this the sane thing as stone screen? I was told regular sand attracted ants.

Stone Screen? Not sure that is the proper term. When Concrete sand and Plaster sand is made, gneiss, trap rock, limestone, granite, etc is crushed and then put through a &quot;Screen&quot; so the same size particles come out the other side. Concrete sand is larger than Plaster Sand. White sand is much much finer. Either way, this is the proper type of sand to use under pavers and retaining walls. It will NOT attract ants.

As a base layer this works well if properly saturated to "pre-settle" the sand. There is a lot of course sand in the bag which makes placing a very thin layer difficult and the volume of course sand to fine sand results in a lot of waste when filling between pavers. I do wish there was a very fine sand available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LEVELING SAND - USED IT TO LIGHTEN CLAY SOIL AND UNDERLAY SOME SMALL RIVER STONE Needed garden grit to lighten heavy soil. Did lots of research and came up with levelling sand by this company. There's actually lots of different sand out there for different kinds of hardscaping and it was important to get the right sand. Otherwise I'd just screw up my garden. So - when you need Garden Grit, try this stuff. You'll have to use your own judgement about how much to use based on how dense and clay packed your soil is, how much organic matter it contains, etc. But go ahead. Fork it in and fork it over! Good luck, enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great in Conjunction with the Pavestone Step 1 Paver Base Had an area with no grass that we wanted to add a paver patio. I initially leveled the existing dirt and sand area out and watered the heck out of it for a week to ensure the existing material had compacted. I then added 2" of the Step 1 Paver Base and ran a plate compactor over it two times in each direction. I then added an additional 2" of the Step 1 Paver Base, and ran the plate compactor again over it twice, in both directions. It is really important that you ensure there are no high or low spots (I kept it under 1/4"). I then placed a stick of 1" PVC Pipe along one edge of the area, and another 8' away. I then added 1" of the Leveling Sand between the PVC, and then pulled a very straight 2x4 along the two pipes (called screeding) to create a smooth, level surface. I repeated this until the entire area had been completed. Was then just a matter of placing down the pavers, adding the border to keep everything secure, and swept some PermaSand in the joints, got it wet, and the patio looks incredible!

The only thing I could say is that some of the bags had punctures or holes in it and some of the sand had leaked out but that could have been from transporting of the bags. Other than that, excellent product.
