if i were to make a comment it would be, stone in place of sand, but it's your backyard so you should know what to use.
I had the same thought. Always go with a washed drain rock, but as Jim said you know your neighborhood and your business. As always it looks like you did a great job.
This kind of situation is my life. I live in a world of compacted decomposed granite. Safe to build foundations on...it's not so bad when you are equipped for it. I don't even think about it anymore. Jackhammer, remove dirt, load in skid, put in dump, grab dirt/rock replace...Ad nauseam.
