Hey everyone.

I would like to get away from pool filter sand as its just a bit coarser than I would like for my eartheaters.

I want brown / natural looking sand. Is there any reason I can't use playsand or natural sand from a landscape yard?

I would only be using 1-1.5 depth as there is only plants on the driftwood and not in the sand.

Thanks for opinions.

Playsand is fine, but grain size might be larger than pool filter sand.
Would steer clear of sand marked "contractor's sand" as it may contain mortar or lime.

Masonry/paver sand looks good. You can get it next to the bricks at Homedepot. Playsand is by there too if you want to check it out.
