Customer Questions & Answers

What kind of sand should i use for a chicken pen bottom?

Asked by: woody
Sand in chicken coops is dangerous. It can compact their croup. Best to have natural ground they can scratch around in and use a very course wood chip for bedding. Or build a wooden floor and use wood chip bedding if you want to make the coop secure from predators. Love those chickens.

OK with vegetables?

Can I use this sand in an area with a vegetable garden? I want to use it to level an area for a raised vegetable garden. Are there any contaminants that might be a problem with growing food?
Asked by: dtmd
The problem with play sand is it is too fine. You need a coarse sand for gardening to improve drainage and aeration. Now we learn that there are problems with coarse sand. Why does everything have to be so difficult? *sigh*

Can it be used for a fire pit ?

Asked by: sergio
QUIKRETE® All Purpose Sand may be suitable for use in a firepit. If your firepit is fabricated, or built from a kit, please reference the manufacturer’s instructions. Some specify using sand, while others call for lava rocks, or other materials. Generally, sand, rock, or lava rock are acceptable. Particularly if using any type of rock or stone, it is important to ensure that the material is dry - Any rocks or stones which are not dry can shatter when heated.

50 lb. All-Purpose Sand is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely A Great All Purpose Bag Of I am very pleased with this product.. the sand was very clean and dust free.. a big plus.. it Is also very versatile. I used it under my walk way paver stepping stones in my front yard and I have had no Problems with the stones slipping around or sinking.. I will also be using it to fix up some all of the half buried bricks that once was my landscape edging in the back yard.. Next is the BBQ Station I Plan To Build Before Summer.. I Like Not Having To Buy All Kinds Of Different Paver Sands that Cost 3 times the price of Quikrete .. I Can get the same exact results for a fraction of the price.. I Highly Recommend Quikrete All Purpose Sand For Every Garden Or Patio Project To Everyone.

Only reason I though this would be a good sand for the chicken coup run is because it does not contain any silica, it's cheap, and the description stated the sand was course and also another review did recommend this product to use inside the chicken coup run as it would make chicken droppings easier to clean up than to spray down with a hose. With that being said, I bought 3 bags. I only opened two, because I really needed something down on the run. I like that it's soft in texture. that's it. I gave it two stars because it is not course as the description read and it makes dust clouds when I poured the sand out. so I know there will be more dust clouds as I clean/remove the chicken droppings. I am reviewing based upon how good this product would be if ever used for chicken coup run. Not because of other purpose, but for only this stated purpose. Oh and it also doing a good job absorbing water droppings from the chicken water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value I used this sand to provide a level base for a walkway. It worked perfectly and wasn't so fine that I had issues with it blowing away, even though I was working on a windy day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works to start my Mittleider garden I picked the best ten bage off of the skid that was at sholder height. no one around for help at the matteson store at 0900. I hand loaded them one at a time onto a tarp inside my car. when I drove the 4 miles and unloaded them 4 had leaked out of the ends all over my tarp. I never handled the ends that leaked. I handled a lot of heavy machines and daily lifted 100 pound plus items during my last job for 24 years the bags are only paper. as I will need to buy at least 20 more bags, I will need to buy a roll of duct tape to secure the bag seams.
