What sand to use on turf? 

For turf applications, especially on high-performance areas like golf greens and sports ovals, we recommend using turf sand. This fine graded sand is specifically designed to resist compaction, ensuring optimal drainage and structural integrity even under extensive activity. Turf sand provides a smooth and durable surface, making it the ideal choice for areas that experience frequent use. 


Coarse sand meaning? 

Coarse washed sand, the coarsest variety we offer at Daisy’s, has similar properties to with kerb or propagating sand. Characterised by its larger particles and the presence of small stones, this sand type is renowned for its excellent drainage properties. Often incorporated into heavy soils, it enhances both structure and drainage. Beyond these applications, it's frequently utilised as a staple in propagating and potting mixes. Moreover, Coarse Washed Sand, with its inherent minerals from the riverbed, is also beneficial when mixed through garden beds, improving drainage and enriching the soil.
