Beautiful for your garden and the planet
The greenSand decorative split of 8-16mm is broken from Olivine rich rock. The rock has a gray-green color and permanently removes CO₂ through weathering. In addition, this fraction has a very high hook resistance and is also permeable to water. This way you prevent unwanted puddles of water in your garden.
Due to the natural reaction of Olivine with rainwater, it deacidifies the soil and inhibits the growth of algae and weeds. As a result, your decorative split retains its original color, unlike other decorative splits that turn green over time.
greenSand decorative split 8-16mm is suitable for:
Due to the high hook resistance, this fraction is ideal for use as ornamental paving
This fraction decorative split is easy to walk on and also wheelchair resistant.
Splash water strip
Prevent mud splashes on the outside walls of your house with a splash water strip.
Frequently Asked Questions
What grade do I need?
This mainly depends on your goal.
Below are some examples:
- Parking space: 8-16mm/16-32mm
- Green roofs: 16-32 mm
- Garden Paths: 2-6mm/8-16mm
- Garden Terrace: 2-6mm/8-16mm
- Gravel box: all gradations possible
- Ornamental paving: all gradations possible
- Splash water edge: all gradations possible
Tip: animals do not like to walk over the 16-32 mm gradation. If you want to make your project animal-friendly, choose 2-6 mm or 8-16 mm

What layer thickness do I need?
The layer thickness depends on the substrate. In general we recommend a layer thickness between 5-8 cm. You will have to lay thicker on a softer surface than on a harder surface. It is of course always possible to add some split a few years later.
How high are the shipping costs?
The shipping costs differ per purchase and are automatically calculated based on the weight during the checkout process. For large projects you can always request a quote using the form below.
How much CO₂ do I clean up?
The greatest profit is achieved by using greenSand as an alternative. Since other decorative splits do not clean up CO₂ and only emit CO₂. The exact amount of CO₂ that you clean up depends on the amount of weight you need for your project. You can assume 1 ton of CO₂ per 1 ton of Olivine. In reality, you will clean up more than 1 ton of CO₂ per ton of Olivine. However, we retain part of the CO₂ for our own account, due to transport, grinding, etc.
Every kilo of greenSand clears up 1 kilo of CO₂
The mineral Olivine weathers (rusts) with the CO₂ in the rainwater. It has been proven in the lab that 1kg of greenSand Olivine captures 1kg of CO₂. However, we are convinced that it goes even faster in real nature. By using greenSand Olivine as a replacement in as many applications as possible worldwide, we can permanently capture a large part of the CO₂ surplus in a natural way. Will you also contribute?
