Grit/Sharp Sand – 1 Ton – Bulk

In horticultural use the larger grain structure of grit sand provides excellent drainage and can be used to loosen clay-heavy soils that would otherwise be waterlogged.

It’s frequently used as a component of potting soil mix, again to aid drainage and prevent developing roots from rotting due to being exposed to too much water.
