Garside Sands range of natural silica sands have a high silica content, typically above 95 per cent, making the sand hard-wearing with low attrition rates, and its ‘sub-angular to rounded’ grain shape and a naturally occurring colour range from white through to yellow and brown make it suitable for a range of applications including water filtration, industrial manufacturing and sports amelioration.
Garside’s sands are washed and technically graded from a variety of coarse, medium, fine, and very fine sands, and can also be mixed with a range of soils and peats to create landscape and divot mixes.
