ordered several bags, 1 is black want my money back
black bag of sand ordered several but one was black!
    CAUTION! Sand has rocks
    I bought 5 bags of the Leveling sand and all 5 bags had rocks in the bag. And not small rocks that you can hardly tell, these were 1 inch stones. I would not recommend this product. Stay away.

      My sand is black
      I was worried when I bought this sand because it comes in an opaque bag. Why don't you want buyers to be able to see the product? When I got home, I found out--it's black. I wrote to Sakrete to ask about it and the reply I received was, "During the mining process different veins underground will product different color sands from the more traditional tan. Given the leveling sand and paver base are used underneath as a compacted bed for pavers, the plant likely continued to package the material." Yes, I can use it as a base under my pavers, but now I will have to go elsewhere to get sand for the joints. Not the end of the world, but I don't appreciate hauling 40-pound bags from shelf to cart to car to patio and then back again when I have to return them.

        Sand but not as advertised, not tan.
        Ordered some bags of this and the "tan" is not nearly as pure as the picture. Either we got the wrong product or don't trust the image.

        This sand goes under a paver system. The color depends on the vein that it is harvested from. The picture is just a picture of a particular batch. since the pavers cover the leveling sand, the color of the sand should not be relevant. sakrete

          The Step Two Leveling Sand in 0.5 cu. ft. bags worked exactly as expected while building out block patio. Having the product in bags allowed us to purchase what we needed, transport easily and then use it for our home project on our own schedule. Leveling the blocks was quick and efficient with SAKRETE's Leveling Sand. Our new patio is the center of our outdoor living, not to mention the envy of the neighborhood.
