    I'm thinking about using sand in my run. I'm a bit confused about where and how to get it and which type. I don't have a truck and the deliveries look too huge for my use. What is "washed masonry sand"? Is that ok to use? What about "washed coarse concrete sand"?

    Thanks

    If it's just sand, I think those will be fine.
    You'll be better off (price wise) with a load delivered rather than buy it by the bag, especially if you have much ground to cover. A bag of sand will disappear almost immediately.
