Fill the sandbag one-quarter to one-half full with sand. It should weigh about 40 lbs.
Fold the empty part of the bag over. Be sure that when you place the bag, the folded-over side is facing down, so that no water will seep in. If one bag leaks, the whole pile will be ruined.
Sandbags work best for filling in low areas of 2 feet or less.
Wait to place the sandbags until the rainy season is near, since the bags can deteriorate over an extended period of repeatedly getting wet and then drying.
