“The ground is boring.”
“It's just ground.”
“Just some ground, eh?”
“It appears to be some turf.”
“A piece öf the battlefield.”
“Some ground that we dug up.”
“It's like an ingredient for the ground.”
Sandy Turf is one of the Turf items that appears in the Reign of Giants DLC, acquired by digging Desert tiles with a Pitchfork. Like other Turfs, it can be placed on any bare ground tile or used as fuel.
Berry Bushes, Spiky Bushes, Pine Cones, and Birchnuts cannot be planted on Sandy Turf. Additionally, Lureplants can be planted on these turfs but its Eyeplants will be prevented from spawning.
When placed on the Surface World and the area is large enough, Crows are the only Birds that will spawn and land on these turfs.
Farm Plots can be placed on Sandy Turf, so one does not need to worry about not being able to build farms in a desert.
