I want to start a garden where the above ground pool use to be. There is approx. 4″ of sand. Would I have to remove all the sand or mix it up with other soils. What’s best process to get this moving? Any other suggestions to make the garden thrive? thank you.

Keep the sand…good for drainage.  You can beef up the soil with compost…we sell composted manure in 1.3 cu. ft. bags (approx. 40 lbs.) that would be prefect for this.  Cove the area with 4″ of the compost then blend it into the sand.  I’d also add some Espoma Bio-Tone organic food into the soil at the time you’re turning it.  This will add organic nutrients as well as beneficial soil microbes to jump start the soil.
