I am building a rock patio and I was told that I can skip the gravel but need to use sand. Then when I was telling my friend what I was doing she said that I need to be careful because the sand will attract ants and a certain type of worm. She also said that if my dogs lay on the sand it will cause them problems because of the worms.
Now I am sure there are others like me but my dogs are like my children and there safety and comfort is usually my first thought when doing anything in my yard. I have not been able to find anything to confirm or deny what my friend said. Does anyone know if what she said is true or false?
Any assistance I would truly appreciate.
