Used as a base for brick paving, this sand is screeded (levelled) off prior to laying pavers and is often installed over the top of a compacted crushed limestone sub-base. While pavers can be laid directly onto compacted paving sand for pathways, a crushed limestone sub-base is generally used under driveway or trafficable areas. Paving Sand is also used as a bedding sand for pipework and as an alternative to fill sand for house and shed pads. Brickies Sand or Plastering Sand can also be used for paving.
