Mason sand and pea gravel are great tools for home improvement projects. Most people are not even aware of these products and what they can be used for. Here is a quick lesson on mason sand and pea gravel so you can start using them on your property today!
This product can easily be compared to concrete sand because the two are very similar. Mason sand is made in the same way as concrete sand; however, it is crushed into a finer consistency. It is composed of some blend of gneiss, granite, limestone or trap stone. It is also washed through screens so the grains are consistent in size. Most people prefer the appearance of mason sand over concrete sand.
Mason sand is used primarily as an ingredient for mortar. It can be used for any projects that use concrete paving, such as outdoor pools. Due to the fact that it possesses a fine consistency, it generally looks better in concrete than concrete sand does. Also, because of it’s fine consistency people actually like using it as a replacement for beach sand.
Have you ever heard of pea gravel? If you haven’t, don’t feel bad because many people have not either. Pea gravel is a blend of small stones that are found along bodies of water. It has been weathered so it possesses a very smooth texture. The colors usually consist of shades of rust, brown, white, and gray.
This type of gravel is extremely versatile and therefore used for several home improvement projects. However, it is mostly used for above ground needs. People frequently use it for flower beds and walkways. It can also be a great tool for drainage.
