Below are the formulas. When I initially came up with the numbers, I was leary that I was ordering too many bags. But we needed more bags because I underestimated. To get volume it's L × W × H = volume or amt of sand needed. Each bag should have volume amt on it. Sample of calculation in ft with #s: 10' × 5' × .5' = 25 cf3 Below are the calculations to convert different measurement units into cubic feet. Good luck Cubic feet formula for different units length(feet) × width(feet) × height(feet) = cubic feet(cf³) length(inches) × width(inches) × height(inches) ÷ 1728 = cubic feet(cf³) length(yards) × width(yards) × height(yards) × 27 = cubic feet(cf³) length(cm) × width(cm) × height(cm) ÷ 28316.846592 = cubic feet(cf³)
I am sorry but I don't know. My honest guess is no because once it is wet it hardens like cement and I think that would destroy any plant roots. I have a large raised garden bed and I would not use it in my soil. It might work if you are trying to make a path on which to walk but I would not mix it for garden purposes
Yes, although it is likely more expensive than play sand by comparison, and once the leveling sand dries out, its pretty much a fine play sand. It comes out of the bag somewhat damp to make it tampable and workable.
I am not sure about your total sq ft but when I did my patio, I used about 1 bag for every 2 -3 stones (my stones were about 13" sq) and I had to make the depth 1"-1.75" in some places due to the "lay of the land." Good luck and enjoy. Great product.
Paverstone sand would be excellent for an umbrella base. It is really clean fine sand.
I wouldn't. I had some stones in it that were the size of a grape and were very sharp. If you don't mind sifting through it before you put it down, then absolutely. But you'd probably have to pull out the larger stones.
This product was great. They filled my order super fast and delivered it to the curb for me. The product also worked out great.
To fill the weights? I see no reason why not. Just ensure it’s dry and weigh it when you fill the weights so you get them consistent.
I ordered the sand 2 years ago to help seal the gaps in between my pavers. I am not good with measuring. I am more visual. See it and do it.
Whether you want to fill the umbrella stand or level under the stand this should work. If your filling the stand there may be less expensive sand though I haven’t looked.
