Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MORPHEUS Perfect for working with pavers, retaining block
This paver sand was just the thing I needed to level and adjust height. It seems to have almost a concrete mixture in it. Once it gets damp it sort of sets up a bit. It can still be worked with but it will keep the other items in place. Made putting in my retaining wall a much easier job. It took me nearly 6 weeks ( rainy days not counted) to complete it. But, it's beautiful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OCEANSIDE Great product to build a firm base
I used the 0.5 cu. ft. Sand Paver Base (Step 1) bags as a base and then put this sand on top of it to build my new patio.
It all came out solid and level - and it looks great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Duffenstein Great for small projects
These bags are great for small projects. My project stretched out over a couple months and after it was done I realized that after 25 to 30 bags I would have been better off just getting a ton delivered by a dump truck. If you are near that point though, the dump truck will cost about the same but you will get more material and can use it more liberally.
I did find a few small rocks here and there but nothing that had any impact on leveling. There aren't enough present to cause difficulty filling paver voids either.

Used the sand to level some deck blocks. Very easy to level and held form when compacted. Good price.

Used this for leveling patio blocks. There were many HUGE rocks in it. Didn't work as well as other brands. Don't waste your time or money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tgower Paver base
The crushed material is fine and does what you need it to do; however, there are far too many uncrushed rocks that you have to pick out when distributing the material. Out of approximately 10 bags I was able to fill 1.5 bags with approximately 1" diameter uncrushed rocks but that does not even count the abundance of rocks half that size. So I had a lot of unusable material when laying a base for pavers. A real nuisance.
So there is not much an alternative available, since sand does not compress as well as this material.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Msdrea32 Okay but you have to work with it
This leveling sand is not sand its mostly rocks and they do not crumble they are solid. It makes it hard to get the area level, you really have to work with it. The brand that Lowes carries is better
