Golf Course sand
Liner (gray clay)
ARENA SAND: Our
coarsest sand is Arena Sand, with some particles the size of pea
gravel to granolithic. While
it is called sand, please be advised that some of this product
(the pea gravel and granolithic) is of a size quite larger than
what most people consider sand to be.
Arena Sand is often used in horse arenas.
However, there is a wide difference of opinion as to
what’s best in a particular arena, depending upon whether it’s
covered or uncovered, and what is best for your horses to use.
So, it is wise to examine the look, size, and feel of the
Arena Sand product before you buy.
SCREENED SAND: Screened,
but not washed, is the operative description for our biggest
selling sand product. Screened
Sand is smaller in size than Arena Sand, but larger in size than
Washed Sand. It does
not have the big particles like Arena Sand, but does have some of
the clay fines (about 2-3% measured on the #200 sieve screen) that
are typically cleansed from the Washed Sand.
Screened Sand is used to bed pipe and has a wide range of
other uses in the construction industry.
WASHED SAND: Washed
Sand is similar to our Screened Sand, but this product has gone
through a sand washing process, so most of the very fine, clay
like material has been washed out.
The sand washing process yields a slightly different
product during the dry summer months, than it does during the wet
winter months, so there is some variance in the sieve size screen
analysis between “summer” Washed Sand and “winter” Washed
Sand. Both are a
medium sized sand, washed free of most fines.
Some customers like washed sand between pavers.
GOLF COURSE SAND: Golf
Course Sand is silica-type sand similar to washed sand, but
slightly finer and more yellow in color. It is sometimes used in
the bunkers of golf course sand traps, hence its name.
When it comes to hues and shades, the exact color of any
product is often in the eye of the beholder, so please examine the
Golf Course Sand to make sure it is the color that you expect.

screened sand is a blend of two different sand sources.
It’s very fine size means it can be easily pumped,
leading to uses in pressure grouting or slab-jacking.
PCCC’s 60-40 sand has been used in a number of
highway/freeway projects where quality pressure-grouting sand is
needed for shoring. Call

CLAY LINER: Our
Clay Liner is not really sand, but it does contain about 20-30%
sand-sized particles. This
product packs extremely well, creating a low permeability liner
for ditches and ponds. When
properly handled and place, our Clay liner packs to a concrete
Sandcastle Sand is our finest sand, recovered from ponds
that collect the finest sands that are cleaned from our Washed
Sand. Sandcastle Sand
approaches the size of clay as most particle sizes are in the #60
to the #270 sieve size. Because
it is very fine, it packs well but also retains moisture.
