Construction Sand for projects, Bioretention Soil for stormwater, Topsoil for lawns
Gainesville is informally known as the “Chicken Capital of the World” and for those who grew up around the area we all know how chicken farming and processing has been a part of our lives. It is better known as a city surrounded on 3 sides by Lake Lanier, the most visited USACE Lake in the nation. River Sand has supplied countless tons of concrete sand and construction sand over the years to help build Gainesville. We have supplied masonry sand, topsoil, topdressing, and infield dirt by the truckloads around the city. Many of the public and private beaches around Lake Lanier, like Don Carter State Park and Clarks Bridge Park, are constructed from our beach sand. Even more above ground pools have a few tons of our pool sandbeneath them. The Atlanta Botanical Gardens have our Topsoil and Bioretention Soil surrounding a lot of roots. Chicopee Woods Arena is not the only horse arena in town that has our Arena Sand installed. Your kids have probably played baseball, soccer, and football on a field around Gainesville that has our Topdressing Sand. We say all that to say that River Sand is proud to be the company that supplies Gainesville Georgia with its landscaping materials and supplies!

Featured Project: Brenau University Softball Field – A Showcase of Products
Brenau University is rooted in the heart of Gainesville. A little distance off college campus they decided to build a softball field for the softball team. The contractor was a long-time River Sand client and knew how to professionally install athletic fields. They also were well aware of all of the products that River Sand has to offer. Gravel was the first need for the construction entrance. It was followed by hundreds of tons of an Engineered Soil Mix comprised mostly of River Sand for the outfield rootzone and sod installation. Next was the Infield Dirt that was a perfect ratio of sand to clay and a rich red color. It didn’t take much of our Masonry Sand for the brick and block work for the dugouts. Indirectly, our concrete sand was delivered in each load of concrete as well. Even a little Topsoil was used for the finishing landscaped areas. So this sport field project was very unique in the amount of products sourced from River Sand in Gainesville Georgia.
Featured Project: Dredging Lake Lanier with an Arsenal
River Sand, Inc. has dredged millions of tons of sediment from Lake Lanier. One project that added up to about 30,000+ tons took the full arsenal of equipment to complete. The project was spearheaded by Dr. Bob, a local Gainesville resident, and well respected around town. Dr. Bob and his neighbors came together to fund the dredging of a cove on Lake Lanier near downtown Gainesville. The sediment was very consolidated and sandy in texture. River Sand was able to utilize a hydraulic dredge to start the process of removing and pumping sediment about 1,000 feet and 65 feet of vertical head (uphill). Once we removed the sediment far out in the cove, River Sand was able to move a long reach excavator, loader, dewatering equipment, trucks and other support equipment directly out in the cove on top of the sediment. The arsenal of equipment worked daily to pump, dig, load, and export sediment one ton at a time until it was all removed. The before and after look and water depth was unreal. The project has had a long lasting effect which is a common question about dredging.
