What Is Fill Dirt?
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 cheap and inexpensive way 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.
