Sand .... I wish I had sand. I will trade you three truck loads of rock for three loads of sand!

Here in Halifax, the builders like to use the rock that they blast / hammer out of the foundation hole to level the front and back yards. They toss a one inch skim of topsoil on it, then sod. Makes for some lovely digging whenever you want to plant shrubs and trees. Would have to dig for weeks to get to a decent depth for a water feature :sad:
