Q.

Yard is all sand

Zone Albuquerque, New Mexico 87121 | StefX added on July 4, 2017 | Answered

Just moved to new home with very large corner lot, but there is no soil here, only sand over hard pan. Can I grow a cover crop in the sand if I mix in some top soil? Want to convert this area to a good growing space.
