Would this be considered washed construction sand.

I want to make a sand/soil mixture for potted Aloe Plants. Mix 2 parts washed construction sand , 1 part manure or compost and 1 part shredded leaves, bark or other organic matter.
Asked by: kcb3rd
QUIKRETE Commercial Grade Medium (#1962) sand is a clean, dry silica sand with a predominant US sieve size range of #20-#50. This is finer than what is typically referred to as construction sand. QUIKRETE All-Purpose Sand #115251 is a washed coarse sand which is often used to mix with Portland cement and gravel to make concrete, and is likely more typical of what is considered to be a construction sand.

If I need a total of 1 (cubic?) yard of sand, how many bags would I need?

I couldn't find any info regarding the area covered by one 50 lb. bag. Also my research shows coarse sand is recommended for underlayment for paving -- is medium adequate?
Asked by: Jillian
The type of paving would dictate the type of sand needed. If you want a sand for leveling purposes for laying down pavers this product could be utilized, we however offer a sand intended for this purpose, QUIKRETE® Patio Paver Base Sand (No. 1150) or QUIKRETE® All-Purpose Sand (No. 1152). The approximate yield of these products would be about ½ cubic foot per bag, so for 1 cubic yard (27 cubic feet) you would need approximately 54 bags. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

Are you sure I can use this in an aquarium without problems like is it a neutral substrate?

Freshwater not salt and maybe pond
Asked by: Alvaroavalos
Yes, QUIKRETE® Commercial Grade Sand - Medium is screened, washed, and kiln dried. It has no other ingredients added to it, so it presents no more danger to fish than sand obtained from a beach or a river. As a safety precaution, you should soak the sand in water outside the aquarium/pond for 30 minutes and test the pH of the water.

Is your QUIKRETE SAND SAFE AND SANITIZED FOR KIDS' PLAY? Is it NON-TOXIC or has the CA Protect Proposition 65 Warning ?

Asked by: Anonymous
Children should play in QUIKRETE Play Sand, not QUIKRETE Commercial Grade Sands. QUIKRETE Play Sand is safe for use in sand boxes. The only material in QUIKRETE Play Sand is natural sand – the same as you find on the beach, at lakes and in river beds. The printed warning is required by law for natural play sand. QUIKRETE Play Sand, and practically all other natural sands in the world, including beach, lake and river sand, contain a portion of silica sand. The printed warning is required by regulations in case someone chooses to utilize the sand for sandblasting in an industrial environment. Industrial exposure studies cite concerns following long term occupational exposure to very high levels of dust, such as for workers sandblasting for years. No studies show health risks for use in sandboxes The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission recommends sand for use in playgrounds. You can be confident using QUIKRETE Play Sand; it is washed, 100% natural sand.
