Two people have reported this. Can anyone speak from experience? And then I wonder if this refers to maybe some individual sand such as silica sand? I have a tributary that runs through my farm that leaves fresh deposits of sand. I have a tractor with the loader and I've hauled quite a few loads of sand onto my garden and mixed it in. On one end of the garden I mixed in a pretty heavy amount, like several inches. I've seen no evidence of compacting or hardening. I like to collect the soil from that area to use for potting. I also add compost across my garden which may be negating any hardening affect. The sand that I bring up this quite clean.

I suggested that on the list last year - mixing sand into the clay soil at my other location - and was told that the result would be cement :)
