Having removed a shed and the concrete base I found builders sand and shale underneath. I have removed most of the sand. Is it ok to dig in what remains and then add topsoil and compost?. It's builders sand so probably conbtaines salt. I'm creating a mixed border of shrubs etc



As long as you've removed as much as you can, and continue to do so if you find extra pockets of sand, it should be fine.
