Sparta Block yellow sand is a washed mason sand that is golden yellow in color. It is typically used for mortar brick and block work, spread under swimming pool liner, pour in children’s sandboxes or volleyball courts. It can be used for many other things as well! Our Masonry Sand is mined at sand pits in Southern New Jersey at seashore areas but is not a beach sand. It is very important to use proper sand, especially in mortar applications.
Well-graded sand features a well-distributed mix of particles of varying sizes, which minimizes voids. Sand that is too fine has more surface area to coat. Coarser sand particles result in larger voids to fill. As a result, a mortar made with sand that has too fine or too coarse contains more water per unit volume, which decreases the mortar’s strength. Excessively coarse or fine sand also makes mortarless workable.
