Recently my son's friends played a prank on our house. Specifically they dumped bags of sand on our basketball court in the backyard so that they could pretend to have a beach party. I am not sure how I will remove the sand now though, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this strange problem?

I don't see how it's your problem. They played the "prank", they get to clean it up. Right? – iLikeDirt May 22 '14 at 23:40
Perhaps a ShopVac? – bib May 23 '14 at 0:10

A number of guilty teenagers, a broom or two, a shovel, a wheelbarrow.

Your job is to point out when the job has not been completed to your satisfaction, until it has been. Your job is definitely NOT cleaning up the sand.

Also give them a shop vac to get all the sand out of the surface. When they are done, congratulate them with a new basketball! – shirlock homes May 23 '14 at 8:59
