Silica sand is even used to repair greens and to facilitate everyday maintenance like root aeration and fertilization. The natural grain shape and controlled particle size distribution of silica provides the required permeability and compaction properties for drainage, healthy plant growth and stability. Due to the distinct properties and qualities of industrial sand, silica, fields are able to maintain firmness while never developing the hard crustiness that inhibits recreation. In golf and sports turf applications, silica sand is the structural component of an inert, uncontaminated, growing media.
