Coarse Red Sand

Suitable for:
• A Wide Range of Subsoil Applications

A light textured, single grain sand with a pH of 8.0, this BS Subsoil has a predominance of medium sand (0.25-0.50mm) and coarse sand (0.5-1.0mm), which makes our Coarse Red Sand ideal for use as a subsoil in a wide range of general landscaping applications. When compacted, porosity levels should be maintained and with a saturated hydraulic conductivity value of 53 mm/hr, this subsoil would be described as having ‘moderate drainage’.

Whilst the recorded value of total sand (91%) was a little high and just exceeded the maximum permissible value given in BS8601:2013 – Fig 1, this is not regarded as being significant.

• Tested to the British Standard for Subsoil (BS8601:2013) table 1
• Fully Tested and Accredited by Tim O’Hare Associates for use as a Subsoil
