Product Description

Product Description

Fully pulverized, rich black dirt.  This dirt does not decompose into near nothingness.  Popular for use under new sod or mixed with local loose soil for planting.  This is a heavier soil and may not be well suited for top dressing lawns, but is highly effective at moisture retention.  Typically this soil is approximately 50% clay, 30% silt, and 20% sandy soil.

Area Coverage Guide

To Calculate How Many Cubic Yards of Material You Need:

1. Measure the Length and the Width of the area you need to cover. Multiply the Length x the Width. This is the square footage of the area (sq ft). For multiple areas, just do this for each section and add them all together.

2. For circles measure the Radius (1/2 the full distance across) and multiply as follows: 3.14 x Radius x Radius. For Triangles, multiply the length of the base x the length of the height x 1/2.

3. Divide your total sq ft by the number of sq ft covered with a cubic yard of material for the depth you desire.

One cubic yard covers:

324 sq ft @ 1" Deep

162 sq ft @ 2" Deep

81 sq ft @ 4" Deep

54 sq ft @ 6" Deep

27 sq ft @ 12" Deep

  1. Excellent Topsoil

    Posted by Pat Carlson on Aug 31st 2019

    I chose the light topsoil. It was delivered on time by a professional, courteous driver. The soil is nicely pulverized and exactly what I was looking for!

  2. heavy black dirt

    Posted by Tom M on Aug 8th 2019

    They r very understanding and calls when there is a problem. The dirt was pulverized a little clumps,very workable. On time as scheduled. Very pleased.

  3. What I needed

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 1st 2018

    The black dirt itself was pulverized and I found 1 rock and 1 piece of metal in it. In my frame of reference that would be wonderful as I have found some weird stuff in black dirt delivered in the past. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is based on the delivery. 8-12 was my window for delivery and he was here at 12:40. Secondly, I placed a very large red X on the driveway as to where to drop the material. He missed by 6 feet. Issue? My driveway slopes down and the X was at the top. by placing the dirt farther down the driveway required me to tarp it all the way to the top of the driveway to prevent rain from washing it down, clogging my drainage system. That is a pain in the a$$ and cost you a star.

  4. Almost perfect

    Posted by Unknown on May 2nd 2017

    I received 3 yards of black dirt. The driver dropped the load exactly where I requested, deep in the back of our yard. Left some minor ruts in the lawn but the driver cautioned me about this beforehand, and I had no problem with that.

    This delivery would rate a perfect 5 stars if all of the dirt had been in a pulverized state. But there were many sizable clumps that were not easily broken up. Might have been due to recent rains, but the clumps were like hard sticky clay, not merely wet. Still hard and sticky a week later.
