Does option B sound better? I wasn't sure where to post this.

you are pretty close to the water where you are. Here on the east end of Long island in most of the areas you can dig down about 2-8 feet a get clean sand maybe it will work where you are. check this out
on Monday i was digging a very small dry well for a puddle that forms in a low spot of a driveway after 4.5 feet i was in the water table.
