Riversand generates naturally, and its slightly rough with very tiny sharp cornered particles. At times, according to sand processing companies, its extracted with mixtures of pit sand then washed to requirement. Cracked stones/rocks and other natural soil particles make up river sand. Unlike pitsand in most cases where you need to dig a bit down into the ground, since the ground level sand will be mixed with lots of dirt and grass. River sand is found readily available at ground level on river banks and usually clean from dirt and grass. The only disadvantage that compels contractors and builders to choose alternatives is because of the limited sources of collection. Due to limited access to it some trade mens resort to quarry dust as an alternative. However with us, its always available for you our clients.
