The addition of sand into soil can be harmful if not proportioned correctly. Sand can be a beneficial addition to your soil bed, by creating pockets of air to increase aeration and loosen up the soil. However it can also suppress the soil’s ability to absorb water. Using sand in soil depends upon what plant is being gardened, and it is recommended to consult with Cobble Patch to decide whether sand could support your plants.
