Sharp sand

Sable rivière 0/4 will get you sharp sand, if you want soft builders sand then ask for sable à lapin if they do it in your area, beware it is not screened, has lumps in it and lots of cat s**t because it is not used for masonry but for bedding of sewer pipes.

I agree with above - it's all sharp sand, soft "uk builders sand" sand is utterly ridiculously expensive and as rare as rocking horse poooop

On a more practical note, do you have the necessary vehicle to collect 1t of sand ? There are builders merchants that will give it to in a bag but you may still need a big trailor to pick it up.

If it's delivery you need then make sure you order it with a lot of notice, especially if you are not around for long. Although, where you live you may get a better delivery service than us. Here it's not like the UK where they ask if you want it the next day before 8 or after 1 in the afternoon. If we order it here could be a week to 10 days before they turn up with it.
