Absolutely... the difference is like a gravel road to start with and now it's like a paved road. It is much more level now than before. The only places where i have trouble are the ruts the water created when washing the sand away. But these ruts aren't very wide or deep, and i actually don't get scalp marks at these places just longer grass where the mower dosen't go all the way down and just passes over it. It took 1 full day of "hard labor" to get 6 yds of sand down over 4000 sq ft. If you wanted to take it easy...you could make it an all weekend project, but I wanted to get it down rather than wait. Another thing I noticed between the back and front yards is the color of the grass. The front... where the river sand was applied... is a much deeper green than the back, there is a stark contrast between them.
