Post Good compost poor water retention 
I recently got a truckload of great compost dropped in my driveway- put it where I want it- planted it- and now when I water it LOOKS wet but when I stick my finger in it it is very dry underneath. Hints? I've already planted stuff in it and was thinking of painstakingly working in some sand or topsoil but not sure what would be best.

Post Pure Compost 
Compost is good for your garden and things will grow there, but it is missing minerals and substance that soil has. I would add topsoil to the compost and mix that in. No need to add sand to compost soil will bind better to the compost.
