What is Torpedo Sand?

Sand is a naturally occurring material that most of us don’t need to spend much time thinking about until we head to the beach for a fun day in the sun, take the kids out in the sandbox, or need it for a home or commercial construction project.  After all, sand is just sand, right?  It feels great between our toes, keeps the kids wondrously occupied for hours and is a necessary ingredient for many construction projects, but not all sand is the same.  The term sand covers a wide range of materials, and it is important to get just the right type of sand to make your project a success.  Whether you want to buy a bag to fill the kids sandbox for the summer, add some paving stones to your patio or fill in a volleyball court, your project will determine the type of sand you need.  Whatever the project, Shoreline has the high quality sand you require.
