Compost, top soil, or fill dirt?
It seems that the soil around my house has eroded a bit. I can see the house foundation in some parts, and around the fence, the soil is below the bottom of the fence. Can anyone provide some advice on what I should get to "fill" it back up to the right level? I'm roughly estimating that I need 6 yard or so...
My first thought it to use top soil... but I couldn't find it for bulk around here. Getting it from bags at the gardening store would cost a lot more than bulk compost, coming in at approx $100 for 2 yards.
I do see some ads for free fill dirt, and they'll even pay you $20 to dump 10 yards of it in your yard... but I'm not quite sure if thats the type of soil I need.
