Waupaca Sand & Solutions is the Midwest’s leading supplier of golf course maintenance materials. We set the standard for greens topdressing and construction mixes in Wisconsin and Illinois.

If you think all infield dirt is the same, you haven’t talked to a shortstop…if you think “sand is sand”, you haven’t talked to a volleyball player…and turf managers who maintain football fields know that the soil makes all the difference.

Waupaca Sand & Solutions offers one-stop shopping for your decorative landscape stone needs, with a wide variety of colors and sizes of rock to use for ground cover and enhancing landscape planting areas.

We’ve been producing quality abrasive products for the blasting and sealcoating industry for decades using a state-of-the-art air fractionating plant to meet customer specifications for abrasive materials and industrial sands.

Spoil your horse by using the best footing materials for your indoor and outdoor arenas, and reduce dust and maintenance in your arena, all while giving your horses a safer environment!

Do your project plans call for bioinfiltration areas? Bioretention basins? Biofilter soil? Save time and money while meeting the project’s requirements by using pre-blended Engineered Soil from Waupaca Sand & Solutions.

What Do Our Customers Say?

“We can play on our Sure-Hop infields well before anyone else in the area.”

Jason
Bartonville, IL

“Thank you for your Glacier Granite Warning Track! It has already been a life saver. We love our product.”

Jordan
Canton, MO

“An immediate positive response was received from our user groups in response to the darker, red color of the Sure-Hop Infield Mix. As the season went on, we experienced fewer problems with dust and drifting, and a lower frequency of rainouts.”

Ted
Highland Park, IL

“The long jump sand looks great. Thanks for working with us on this.”

Louie
Mitchell, SD

“We rehabbed 10 ballfields and used the Sure Hop mix. We averaged 8-10 missed games per season per field because of rainouts. With the new fields we’ve only lost a total of 2-3 games per year since. Love that Sure Hop.”

David
Hartland, WI

“The infield mix worked out perfect. Better than what we had and everyone is happy! Thank you.”

Cindy
Peosta, IA

“My golf course has received superior service from your company and your staff.  Great service has come from everyone including your truck drivers.”

Scott
Menasha, WI

“The ThawDust Black Sand is amazing stuff. Very happy with the end results.”

Lee
Beaver Dam, WI

“I can’t believe how much difference the ThawDust Black Sand made. It raised the surface temperature 20 degrees. The plants that were partially damaged got kicked into high gear due to the soil temperature increase.”

Brian
Highland Park, IL

“I have been very happy with the root zone sand that we have used on both of our soccer and softball field sod replacement projects.”

John
Champaign, IL
