DESIGN ADVICE

We can help you design the best scheme

 

Sand Application

Professional application of a range of washed silica sands

Only washed silica sports sand should be used for application to a natural sports surface. Using reject or building sands merely introduces more silt and clay into your playing surface, increasing the chance of surface compaction and impeding drainage. Soft sands will break down quickly.

Adding silica sand will gradually improve the particle size of the soil but needs to be implemented on a continuing basis over a number of years. It is not advisable to apply more than 100 tonnes per pitch in one dressing for fear of smothering the grass.

 

We will supply a washed sports sand from the nearest quarry to you to keep the haulage costs to a minimum. The sand is delivered, tipped on to a stone free area close to site, and loaded on to belt and spinner spreaders pulled by tractors all with sportsturf  tyres to avoid any unnecessary damage to your playing surface.

Although sand application should ideally be carried out in conjunction with other treaments, the introduction of a good washed medium/coarse silica sand into the rootzone will go along way to aiding drainage and improving the wear tolerance of your grass playing surface.

We can carry out particle size testing on your exisiting soil in our own laboratory to ensure that you are applying a sand that will enhance the soil structure. Please see our Pitch Perfect service for more information.

"We have been using Bourne Amenity for all our bulk product requirements; sands and rootzones, top-soils, pathway materials etc for over 20 years. Their combined knowledge within the Amenity/Horticulture and Agricultural sectors with regard to product knowledge and technical support is second to none and being a family-run business, continuity with regard to customer relations and ongoing communication with people you know and trust is a key asset. This is especially so now, with the current penchant for call centres and lack of “the personal touch”."
