I have been using this sand for a while now and I really don't know why its got such a low star rating... defo a 4 star for me and that's coming from a bricklayer.

I bought this sand to lay bricks and do some pointing up. Full of large stones and grit. Totally unfit for what it’s advertised for!!

Bought 4 bags yesterday, it wasn't sand more like ballast labelled as sand, so many stones and grit. Spent more time getting the stones than getting anything done, shocking.

I bought 2 bags of this sand to build a full size model of Egypt in the spare room. There was even a bit left over. My 2 cats helped but I am sure the pyramids arnt supposed to be brown and smelly.

Bought 6 bags several weeks ago with cement for bricklaying and OK. Bought 6 more yesterday and they are an entirely different material. Grading is more like sharp sand and material is hard and gritty so prevents creation of smooth mortar. Had to abandon work and go to another supplier for decent smooth sand. Cement has rocks of cement in bottom of bag where it has been wet. Wouldn`t buy bagged material from B&Q again. Quality untrustworthy.
