I live in Michigan and have a very shady area of my backyard with several trees that is adjacent to a pool. The area is about 450 sqft.
I would like to lay sand for this summer as a tiki beach area and then next summer install large pavers in the area over the sand. Can I get suggestions for what type of sand to use as a beach area and then as a leveling base for pavers next year? Should I use a coarser sand which I've read is preferred as a base for pavers?
As I mentioned the area is shady so the sand won't get a lot of sun to dry out after rain.
