    ...Well, its more sand than dirt! Has anyone used it in their runs? or should I just bring in my own sand?

    My Dad and I cleared some area in the back to put up a play ground for my son, so I can use what the bobcat pushed out of that area...only thing is, the sand down here is pretty fine...like kids play sand.

    to use, or not to use??

    I was thinking of using the construction sand (from reading other posts about it), putting gravel down then the sand to help with draining...

    any better ideas?


    thanks for the reply!
