Try to order by the yard if possible.  Volume is more accurate than weight.  Sand could have a high content of moisture and therefore weigh more.  Always round up the next higher amount if they will not deliver 1/2 yards.   There will generally be sand left over after the installation.

NOTE - VERY IMPORTANT:   Always insist on masonry sand!  Sand must not contain any rocks, stones, pebbles, twigs, trash, grass, etc.  It must be pure, fine masonry sand.
