River sand is commonly used for many landscaping or construction projects. In Georgia, river sand is generally made from large quartz rocks that weather and wear down into fine particles. The sand is then washed and screened to remove any large debris and is then available for your use.
Uses for River Sand
River sand is stable sand to use for most projects. It is often used in fill projects where the more refined quality of masonry sand is not needed for aesthetics. River sand is also used in sandboxes or play yards, golf courses and more.
