|I am preparing some areas in my yard for landscaping. After removing the grass, I dug a pilot hole to see what my soil situation is like, and it turns out I have about 2" of topsoil on sand. I don't mean "sandy soil", it is like a beach sand under there.
I plan on planting some shrubs that are in 3 gallon buckets.
Do I need to dig out the sand around where I am planting and replace with soil? If so, how far around (sides and below) should I dig out?

|You just need to dig out the proper sized hole according to the tag on the plant. Back fill with soil, sand and peat moss.
It is just with dandy soil, you'll need to water more often over all.
