Lanier Sand and Soil started in 1953, as a family-owned and operated construction company, Lanier Construction, in Millen, Georgia. After Lanier Construction was founded, it transformed into Lanier Sand and Soil as the family owned one of the richest deep-bank sand properties in the United States, located near Columbia, South Carolina.

Now, Lanier Sand and Soil focuses primarily on providing the best soil and sand products to customers. They offer fill sand, masonry sand, sand clay, screened sand, ag-lime soil, crusher run, fill dirt, top soil, blended sand, and blended soil.
