            I purchased this multi purpose sand to use in my cats outdoor litter box. It was great, until it rained and the sand never dried.

            Great for under our above ground pool
            We used this to smooth and level when setting up our above ground pool. This worked great. No rocks or pebbles. Just smooth sand. This worked great for our needs.

            Inaccurate description. Not for sandboxes!
            The product description on the Home Depot webpage says "This sand is graded, washed, dried and sanitized for use in sandboxes..." BUT the label on the bag itself says only that it is "graded and washed" and includes the warning that "This product should not be used for play sand." So it appears that the webpage description is not accurate. The bags I purchased for use in my garden included a high proportion of small stones, which was not what I wanted for this use.

                Extremely inconsistent product. Depending on what you need it for, it might work. The left side of the picture shows the fine sand I received late last year. The right side shows what I just received. It looks more like gravel to me. It also had some rocks about the size of a cherry tomato. I'm not happy with this because I needed more of the fine sand I bought last time. And yes, I bought the exact same product with the same SKU and it came in the same leaky paper packaging that wants to rip open when you pick it up.

                  Just the right amount of sand per bag no complaints.

                  Paver base
                  We used this as part of our paver base over crushed gravel. We bought 28 bags based on the calculations they provided for 1" depth. I would recommend buying more than you think you'll need. We are about 4-8 bags short. It tricks down into the gravel so you end up using more than you think. We used 2 'sticks' cut at 1" high and dragged a 4' level over it to get it grade. 1 bag would do a section. The sticks were about 1'-1' /12 long so hopefully that gives you an idea of your doing a similar project. It does contain small gravel but for construction or gardening use it seems perfectly acceptable. I wouldn't purchase for a sand box.
