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*

Bought this to level ground and put new grass on top of and 4 of the 6 bags were actually concrete mix and not sand. All 6 bags clearly said All purpose sand but I noticed the color of the sand was greyer than the others. next morning I had concrete all over front lawn. I now have to dig up and buy new sod and replace because it will die since the concrete won't allow it to take root. Spoke to the store manager and he basically said "I've never heard of that before, what do you want me to do about it"? Looks like I'll be traveling to Lowes as I've never been treated like this there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely A Great All Purpose Bag Of Sand..lol 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.
