Because of the relative large size of sand particles (.05-2.0 mm), sandy soils have trouble holding water and nutrients. They are commonly deficient in calcium and magnesium. Adding humus to sandy soils can help. When mixed with a heavier soil (one that is largely comprised of clay), sand can help provide aeration. Sand is also commonly mixed with seed for broadcasting.

In metalcasting, a loose, granular material high in SiO2, resulting from the disintegration of rock. The name sand refers to the size of grain and not to mineral composition. Diameter of the individual grains can vary from approximately 6 to 270 mesh. Most foundry sands are made up principally of the mineral quartz (silica). Reason for this is that sand is plentiful, refractory, and cheap; miscellaneous sands include zircon, olivine, chromite, CaCO3, black sand (lava grains), titanium minerals and others.
Soil composed of large particles. Mitawan in the Ojibwe.
earth material consisting of grains of worn-down or disintegrated rock, mainly of silica, larger than silt but smaller and finer than gravel. [AHDOS
A term that can have several meanings. The sand at a beach could be a variety of unconsolidated materials, though most likely it is silica (SiO2). Sand is also a term used for a size of rock ranging from very fine to very coarse.
Subject: The Earth Sedimentary material composed of fragments ranging in diameter from 0.0625 mm to 2 mm. Sand particles are larger than silt particles but smaller than pebbles. Much sand is composed of quartz grains because quartz is abundant and resists chemical and mechanical disintegration, however other materials such as shell and rock fragments can also form sand.[ Pics List
Loose granular material resulting from the natural disintegration of rock or from the crushing of friable sandstone, passing through a #4 sieve but predominantly retained on a #200 sieve; manufactured sand is the fine material resulting from the crushing and classification by screening, or otherwise, of rock, gravel or blast furnace slag.
Sand is a granular material made up of fine rock particles. Sand is a naturally occurring, finely divided rock, comprising particles or granules ranging in size from 0.0625 (or ) to 2 millimeters. An individual particle in this range size is termed a sand grain.
