Fill Dirt- Unscreened

Unscreened fill dirt is dirt that has not gone through the screening process of sifting through the dirt to remove roots, wood pieces, rocks, etc. Since the dirt has not gone through this screening process, it is an inexpensive option to fill holes. Unscreened fill dirt is used where soil is needed with little need for soil nutrition.

Topsoil and Fill Dirt

Topsoil is the upper layer of soil, typically the top 2-3 inches, which contains the highest concentration of organic matter and nutrients that support simpler plant life such as grasses, bedding plants and other foliage with shallow root systems. Georgia soil is largely a clay composition that needs to be improved in order to sustain a high quality lawn or planted area. Topsoil is available as "screened". Topsoil is the primary manner to improve your planting area although blending in compost, sand or fertilizers will greatly improve the overall quality of your soil.

Fill Dirt is used to fill a hole or depression, or to build-up an area. Fill dirt can provide a lasting solution to level an area whereas filling an area with organic matter (leaves, logs, etc.) will not. As organic matter decomposes the area will collapse and the depression will return. Fill dirt is usually subsoil and contains little organic matter or plant sustaining nutrients although during the clearing of land it may become mixed with stumps, limbs, rocks, concrete or other elements. Fill dirt is usually obtained from excavation done on construction sites. Fill dirt should be used as an inexpensive manner to level an area prior to paving or to serve as a substrate which can be topped with topsoil. Areas using fill dirt should be thoroughly soaked with water to pack the dirt so that a true evaluation may be made as to the true level of the fill.

Special Soils are "blended soils" where topsoil has been mixed with compost or other nutrient rich materials to develop a soil that promotes better plant growth and development. These soils are typically identified by their deep, dark color and loamy texture.
