pure sand for soil
I won't even call it sandy soil because there isn't anything else in it but sand. This is my first time on this forum and I need help to amend my sand so that I can grow a garden. We have already stripped the 'grass' which was mostly weeds anyway.
The area I live in has several sand pits that are excavated, there isn't anything but sand here. My home is a raised bungalow and all of my other beds are on the 'regular' ground level and this lot used to be part of a farm so the soil is decent. The problem is at the front of the house where the builder dumped sand to raise the level at the front.
I know that I should amend it with organic material but are there other materials as well? When bark is composting it takes nitrogen so I should avoid that, yes? Should I order triple mix? peat? manure?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
