Washed Concrete Sand

**Washed concrete sand** $22.95 per ton

1 ton of sand covers 100 square feet 2 inches deep.

We sell washed concrete sand which is suitable for roundpens and horse arenas.

It is a medium size course sand particle that holds up to most uses very well.

You do not want over 3 inches of sand in the arena or roundpen and you may want to start with a 2 inch lift. Too much sand can injure your horse. It is much easier to add more material than to remove it.

Heavy daily use of the arenas and roundpens by multiple horses can break the sand down and it will become dusty. This is natural, just as every so often your car needs new brakes or tires, your horse riding and exercise areas will need new sand.

At that point you can add another inch or so of sand or use squeegee instead. Squeegee is 1/4 inch minus rock with 20 - 30 percent sand in it. Squeegee covers 100 square feet 2 inches deep per ton, the same coverage as sand.

Squeegee is the material sized between sand and pea gravel. While some arenas and roundpens add up to 50 percent squeegee, most of the time it is a better idea to start with 25 - 30 percent.

The amount of sand or squeegee needed to acheive average depths is as follows.

- Sand and squeegee both cover 100 square feet, 2 inches deep, per ton.
- The ground should be graded with a slight downhill slope to help with drainage.

- Most sand and squeegee is delivered in 15 ton truck loads.
- The delivery price is the same whether you get 12, 13.50 or 15 tons delivered.
- You will have to decide, based on your budget, if its is less expensive to buy a little more than you need and get a full truckload so you'll have a little extra either for the arena or roundpen in the near future or only buy as close as you can to the exact amount you need.

**To Order the Correct Amount of Material **

Measure the length and width of the area to be covered. If you don't have a tape measure, walk the length and width of the area. Figure each full step as 2 1/2 feet. Get the total square footage of the area by multiplying the length by the width.

Example: 120 feet long by 60 feet wide = 7200 square feet

1 ton of Washed Sand covers 100 square feet 2 inches deep.

For every 2 inches of depth you will need 72 tons of Sand
