Screened Fill Dirt
Screened fill dirt goes a step further, removing rocks, gravel, and other debris larger than three-quarters of an inch in diameter. Removing these larger fragments can make it easier to maneuver the dirt and transport it to and from various locations. Screened fill dirt also has fewer clods of clay, giving it a finer, more uniform consistency. During the screening process, the dirt is moved through mesh screens, sifted, and evaluated to ensure the proper consistency. Larger particles might even be removed by hand.
