Fill Sand

Composition

A natural blend of dirt, clay and sand that is not processed.

Description

This is a material used primarily for fill.  It has not been processed so it can be fairly clumpy.  There is no organic matter added to it and it compacts very well.  Fill sand can be worked by hand, but it is not easy.    It should be top-dressed with a processed soil before planting. Sold by the ton.

Uses

  • Backfilling holes or trenches over 12” deep.
  • Filling holes where good compaction is needed, such as where something will be built over the filled area.
  • Filling areas by hand that processed soils are too expensive for.
