The Q&A Archives: Soil amendment

Question: We are prepping an area of our yard that was pretty much destroyed during home renovation. Right now the soil is pretty much just sand. We can get free compost from our city dump. Is this what we need to add to the sand to make good planting beds? If not, what? How much (of whatever) should we add and how deeply should we till? Drainage is generally good in that area. We live in NH.
