I had to dig up my pond recently because of invasive roots underneath. With the lockdown I am unable to buy sand. I do have Sandy soil. Thanks Julie

Sandy soil is fine, too! The idea is to create a pocket underneath to keep it level, and from shifting so much.

Sandy soil will be a close second to sand, especially for these circumstances.
