I was there, last weekend, to check out their concrete sand, which is basically coarse sand. You drive up to the piles of sand, gravel and stones; fill your vehicle with what you want; and on your way out, your vehicle and products are weighed, and you pay for what you buy by weight.



The "concrete sand" that they have is nice dark tan/brown color, but extremely dusty. You will have to sift it to separate coarser grains from fine dusty grains of sand, and wash it a lot.



I did not have the facility nor energy to go through a ton of sand just to get a couple of hundred pounds of large grain coarse sand. So I ended up not buying it. I did however buy a couple of rocks from them, which I used for my 220 gallon planted tank.





More photos are in my journal here.

This is in lorton, va? This looks identical to the luckstone lot in goochland. I went to the luckstone lot in search of rocks like the big one in your 220 and came back empty handed. Did they have more like what you picked up?
