Our fill dirt is perfect to fill in large areas where higher quality topsoil may not be needed. Make no mistake about it though, it is Fill Dirt and NOT topsoil! It may include rock and root material but it is just normal dirt (like if you were to dig into the side of a hill). Fill dirt can range from being very sandy to having high clay content to glacial till. Email us to find out what kind of Fill Dirt we currently have in stock.
Do not expect to grow anything in the Fill Dirt that we bring you! It is also not feasible to amend the fill material in order to support plant growth either. Please use TOPSOIL for any kind of plant growth, including grass. Use Drain Rock, Tailings or Crushed Rock Chips as back fill for retaining walls (for maximum drainage potential).
Fill Sand- (Horse Arena Sand)
Available for a limited time, we have a limited quantity of Fill Sand available. Once it is gone, it is gone for good unless somebody hauls us more in the future.
It is coarse washed screened sand but it also has little 1″ square pieces of weedblock material in it- I guess to facilitate easy movement of the horses on the sand in an arena environment. This is something we are unfamiliar with so we don’t know 100% why it has the little pieces in it but we really don’t care either. And if you don’t care and we don’t care, then maybe we can do business together….right?
You can use it for whatever you might want builder’s sand for or for other purposes. The idea is that you get it significantly cheaper than builder’s coarse washed sand (which we also carry) and you make space in our landscape yard for something else to sell that customers might want. It could also be great for childrens’ play areas but be warned, the neighborhood cats might love it too!
Builders Course Washed Sand
Our Sand is excellent for use in rototilling into heavy clay soils to facilitate drainage, in mixing concrete, or under flagstone, pavers or bricks for creating patios. It is also used for children’s play areas.
Our Fine Sand is excellent. We mix it in some topsoil blends and sell it to customers to lay pavers and stepping stones in too! Obviously, it can be used for multiple purposes but it is also used in place of Builders Coarse Washed Sand as a cheaper alternative. It is also used in specialty applications where fine sand is recommended or required.

Barged in all the way from Alaska, this course sand can be used for decorative purposes or as an abrasive “sand blast” sand.
