When I bought my house 7 years ago there was a sandbox in the
backyard, maybe 8 x 8, with pressure treated wood holding about 300
pounds of sand. I have no kids, and the sandbox quickly turned into a
place where stray cats shit and weeds grow.
What can I do with it? Getting rid of it would be a major ballbreaker
- maybe fill it with 6 inches of topsoil and grow vegatables, flowers?
Plant a tree in it? Any ideas to take care of the eyesore without
spending a fortune wound be appreciated.
I dont want to blue tarp the thing again.
No problem when starting trees. Even vegetables would not be a problem
when starting them as long as you moved them elsewhere for production.
I doubt much poison would still be leaching out after 10 years.

Suggestion: Demolish it; disposing of the wood in an approved fashion or use
wood as pressure treated fence posts.
Rake/spread the sand etc, around the garden/lawn etc. Is it not sand that
they use on golf greens to level, fill in holes and dips etc.?
Could add a small amount of fertiliizer and possibly lime if required at

Get rid of it. I don't understand the 'ball breaker' problem. A few
minutes with a bar and hammer or sledge will dismantle the PT lumber
then a few more with a shovel to spread the sand in the general area.
Probably has a floor of some kind which can then just be picked up.
The only major problem is disposing properly of the PT lumber.
