Our Play Area Sand is a lovely fine, light sand, tested to BSEN1177 for use in kids sandpits and is ideal creating 'fake beaches' in public spaces such as bars and county fares. Makes fabulous sandcastles!  

We can supply you with 3 sizes of bulk bag:

  • Jumbo Bulk Bag which contains approx 1000kg (one tonne)
  • Standard Bulk Bag contains about 750kg (same as most builders merchants)
  • Half Bulk Bag contains approx 500kg

Small Handy Bags are 25kg and the perfect option if you want a small quantity or if you have access issues and will need to carry through your house or over any walls etc - Fab if you want to store some ready for re-filling! 

Delivery Information

Delivery is currently between 3 - 15 working days depending on your location and the products you wish to order - please select an option at the Checkout (this will vary during Christmas and over bank Holidays).

We use a variety of delivery vehicles and haulage firms to complete our deliveries.

If you live in or near Chester, we'll deliver to you ourselves with a HGV crane, if you live elsewhere in the UK we'll use a pallet network who will use a manually operated pallet truck to move the pallet of bag(s) to the kerbside or onto a level, solid surface such as a tarmac drive (not gravel or grass sorry).

Shipping is free to Chester and some North Wales postcodes - outside of this area prices start at £19.95.

Product Disclaimer


We do not chemically treat our products for weeds. Weeds thrive in warm, wet weather and especially in very fertile soils and composts like our own. Although every care is taken to remove weeds during our screening process we can not guarantee that weed seeds are not present in the soil or compost that you receive. To keep your topsoil organic we suggest pulling up common weeds, when and if they appear, instead of using chemical weed-killers. Or purchase some of our anti-weed prevent membrane and some gravel or mulch, for an easy weed-free garden!

Gravel/Stone Size & Colour

Images are for representation only.  All products that Dandy’s supplies are naturally occurring products and may have slight variations in colour, size and content, individual rocks, stones or cobbles made be broken or misshaped because of this. Sizes of products specified are approximate and can vary.  Naturally occurring products such as slate, natural stone paving or gravel are sourced from quarries and so can often differ in appearance slightly from load to load.

We are absolutely over the moon with our play sand! The dogs just can’t get enough! From first initial contact to delivery was spot on and plenty of correspondence in between to ensure the order and delivery ran smoothly. Thanks Dandy’s! Will definitely use again! X

Delivered within 48hours

Customer services proactively called to inform about a potential delay, and offered apologies. 900kg of sand came next day. Perfect 👍

Alison D. (Cheshire West and Chester)

The team at ordering were very helpful as we had limited space for our sand and were able to advise the amount that we would need. At delivery the driver was very good and accommodating due to our location and space and was able to find a solution for the sand to be delivered.
