River Sand, Inc. supplies Sand, Soil, Gravel, Dirt, and Mulch to Milton, GA. For over a decade River Sand has provided landscape supplies and construction materials to Milton located just north of Atlanta.

We focus on exceptional quality products, with great service, at a competitive price. Since we are the actual producer of the sand and soil products you are buying direct from the source. We deliver to you project whether it is your backyard, road construction, or concrete plant. Landscapers, contractors, and homeowners all call River Sand for their landscape supplies.
Delivery to Horse Arenas, Lawns, Driveways, and New Construction
Milton has become one of the safest, most desirable, and unique suburbs of Atlanta. The unique tie to its rural heritage is evident by the many horse farms scattered throughout the city. Its city limits are mainly residential so much of our products delivered to Milton are Topdressing, Topsoil, and Arena Sand. There have been many equestrian enthusiasts with horse arenas that we have consulted with and supplied sand. We have supplied many types of Arena Sand including many blends of geosynthetic fibers. Landscapers and homeowners in Milton know that leveling your turf with Topdressing can improve the look and health of your lawn. For new construction, our Topsoil is one of the best products to place beneath the sod as a perfect rootzone. Milton is one of the few city’s in its area where you can find a few gravel roads and driveways still today. The nostalgia and practicality of a gravel driveway is still present. Driveway maintenance is usually best done with a spreader truck that spreads the gravel upon delivery, and River Sand offers this service to save you time and money.
Featured Project: PerfectSoil for the perfect lawn
Mike and Julie had finally purchased the home of their dreams. Milton was a perfect place to live outside of Atlanta but close enough to enjoy all the Metro area has to offer. The back deck was a favorite spot to sit and read or work. The back lawn was fenced to keep their labrador at happy at home. The one maple tree provided just the right amount of shade but not too much for the bermuda sod and a small, raised bed garden. However, no matter how much Mike fertilized and watered the turf it still wouldn’t remain lush and full throughout the summer. He even hired a landscaper to help, but the solution was just to spray more fertilizer and more herbicide. They weren’t opposed to this but with the dog and kids favorite play area being the back lawn it wasn’t ideal. One day Mike dug a hole to place a birdfeeder and realized what most Georgia homeowners may or may not know. His sod was growing in nothing but compacted red clay. The roots were shallow and most of them on the surface. After a quick internet search, Mike found answers. He needed a quality soil for deep root penetration and a healthy lawn. This would reduce irrigation, fertilizing, and herbicide applications. Another search and he found River Sand. It only took a few more days before two loads of dark, rich Topsoil, called PerfectSoil arrived to be dumped out. Mike rented a small walk behind skid steer to place and grade the material. With one more call he was able to have the sod delivered and installed it the next day. It took a season for the sod to establish but the next year Mike realized the difference. The only one disappointed in the project was the dog that had to re-dig all of her favorite holes to bury the toys back in.
Featured Project: Corporate Campus Lake Dredging
Even though Milton is known for its quality residential living, there are many business’ that call it home too. One corporate campus in Milton has multiple Class A buildings that overlook a lake and a bridge over the lake connecting the buildings. The high-capacity parking lots have 5 separate stormwater detention ponds as well. The lake offers a beautiful view from many of the offices, and the bridge is a favorite lunchtime break to enjoy a few minutes out of the office. Over time sediment filled the upper end of the lake. Vegetation started overgrowing the lake, and there was also a large amount of trash along the shoreline. River Sand was contracted to clean it all up. Our process involved a long-reach excavator to dredge the lake and load it on a low ground pressure off-road truck. The sediment was placed on an empty area to improve the grade and save export costs. Our team was able to remove a ton of trash (plastic bottles, bags, tires, and other debris) that had come from the runoff from the upstream sources. The 5 sediment ponds could only be accessed without cars in the parking lot, so River Sand’s team scheduled a Saturday in which all the ponds had to be cleaned. It was a long day and each pond involved a different approach to dewater and dredge. This portion of the project is an example of a functional dredging project that needs to be done to keep the stormwater treated, but may not add aesthetically to a property. The lake portion was the part that did both, restore functionality along with the beautiful look of a lake outside the office.
