    Hi All,

    I currently have three (3) aviaries that I'm looking to re-design with 2" of gravel/pea stone on the bottom topped with 2"-4" of sand. From what I've been reading this sounds like the best solution for controlling mud and adding a nice look to the aviary.

    The only thing I'm missing here is what type of sand should I be looking at using?

    - Masonry Sand
    - Golf Sand/Fill Sand
    - Play Sand

    Hoping to hear feedback from others in the forum :)
