Mosser Lee Decorative Sands are selected especially for Mosser Lee for their beauty. Our clean sands are the highest quality on the market and highly rated among users, including professional interior decorators.

The Many Types of Sand:

Sand is not just sand. When we started offering sand, we chose Desert Sand because it was attractive and still offered many of the usual sand uses, such as loosening clay soils. Our customers told us that they liked the beauty of our Dessert Sand and wanted more variety to enhance their plants. We sourced white sand from the sand pits in Western Wisconsin, which became extremely popular. We continued to receive inquiries for black sand, so our supply group was tasked with finding a suitable supply of natural black sand. They researched all the known sources, typically on volcanic islands. Not surprising, every country that has natural black sand restricts sourcing and even imposes stiff fines for removing it. We discovered a black sand-like product manufactured in the USA for sand blasting that was relatively available. Today, we offer three popular types and colors of decorative sands.
