5 Ways to Use Masonry Sand on Your Glen Arm Property

Consider using masonry sand from Lehnhoff’s Supply for any of these five projects on your Glen Arm property.

Folks all over Maryland are working on home improvement projects while they are in quarantine, and Lehnhoff’s Supply is here to deliver the materials you need! Masonry sand is a versatile material that is used in all sorts of applications. Its fine texture makes it ideal for use in masonry, but it can also be used as an aggregate or fill material. Consider using masonry sand from Lehnhoff’s Supply for these five projects on your Glen Arm property.

1. Install a Paver Patio or Walkway

For folks who are somewhat experienced in landscaping and construction, installing a patio or walkway using pavers or flagstones is an excellent DIY project. The base material for your pavers can help keep them in place and should provide excellent drainage. Masonry sand is often used as a paver base, just be sure to grade your patio or walkway appropriately.

2. Create a Volleyball Court or Sandbox

Due to its fine texture, masonry sand is an incredibly popular medium for sandboxes, playgrounds, volleyball courts, and more. If you need assistance determining how much material you need to fill your sandbox or volleyball court, contact the team at Lehnhoff’s Supply. Don’t worry, we deliver!

3. Use Masonry Sand as Fill Material or Aggregate

Another widespread use for this type of sand is as a fill material for things like swimming pools. Its texture also makes it desirable in some cement mixes as an aggregate. The small grains give the cement a smoother, more finished appearance.

4. Apply Masonry Sand Topdressing to Your Grass

Owners of commercial and residential properties alike can apply topdressing to their lawns. Aerating the soil and using masonry sand as a topdressing can improve soil texture, mitigate the effects of compaction, and provide much-needed drainage. 

5. Use in Horse Arenas and Golf Courses

In addition to its use on golf courses as a topdressing for turf, masonry sand is also an excellent material for creating sand traps. Many horse arenas also use masonry sand (mixed with specific additives and extras) to give horses the ideal surface to run on. However you decide to use masonry sand in Glen Arm, call the experts at Lehnhoff’s Supply for sand delivery!
