    Default Sand

    Not really 4x4 related, but I'm willing to risk it:

    I'm looking to get about a cube of dune/beach sand for my 9 month old son's sandpit. Any ideas?

    De La Rey delivers sand by the cubic metre. They'll charge you the bucks per metre plus deliver charge to your area.
    If you collect it yourself you can buy half metres.

    Boerbaba will be lime sand. Philippi sand is plain dune sand. If you deliver it yourself it's not going to cost you more than about 60 or 70 bucks.

    Edit: Those plastic clams are small though. You can probably get by on 5 or 6 bags of sand from any hardware.
