Fill Dirt Description

Fill Dirt, also known as subsoil or backfill, is a type of soil devoid of organic material that is commonly used in construction and landscaping projects. Typically available in shades of brown to gray, Fill Dirt is prized for its compactability and resistance to settling, making it an excellent choice for forming a stable base for roads, buildings, and other structures. It’s also used for filling low areas or for raising the ground level. With its gritty texture and sturdiness, Fill Dirt requires minimal maintenance once compacted, though it may need occasional regrading in response to natural settling or erosion. Available in bulk and year-round, Fill Dirt is a staple material for both residential and commercial construction efforts.
