Screened top soil has been screened to remove debris. Screened top soil is used to fill a hole or depression, or to build-up an area. Screened top soil can provide a lasting solution to level an area. Fill dirt should be used as an inexpensive manner to level an area prior to paving or to serve as a substrate. Areas using screened top soil 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.
