Think about --What do you want to achieve??
There are many choices.
Sand alone with a good solid base is the--Gold Standard. Start with 2 inches depth (hard to remove). Over time, Sand will erode and compact, Sand is the cheapest materials.
There are other sands other than river sand like Polymer-fused/wax-coated sand:
Each individual grain of sand is coated with a plastic polymer product. The coating is laminated on to the sand using a heat process, which makes it permanent. Very Expensive $$$>
