More About Garden Soils For You
Organic Screened Topsoil
Did you know? Topsoil is the material that makes the top two to twelve inches of the earth’s surface. Comprised of mineral particles, organic matter, water, and air, topsoil is ideal for improving the condition and appearance of your lawn and garden. In fact, quality topsoil makes a dramatic difference in how your plants derive their nutrients from the ground, and is extremely important to healthy plant life. Without it, the earth’s plant life would disappear.

The Benefits of Screened Garden Soils
There are several benefits to screened dirt that might make it the right choice for your home construction project. The lack of large particles in the dirt decreases the amount of space around which water can enter, preventing settling and creating a stronger foundation for your project. With screened fill dirt, you can be more certain that the foundation of your gazebo, living space, or other installation will be secure. While standard fill dirt can still be used to create a strong foundation, screened fill dirt’s lack of large rocks may be ideal for particularly sensitive projects.
Screened fill dirt is also helpful when your project requires additional precision. Without large rocks around which to maneuver, you can purchase the exact amount of fill dirt needed for your project. You can also use it to grade land more precisely, making it beneficial for areas in which you need to slope water away from a foundation or create a platform of a precise height. This can give contractors added peace of mind when dealing with projects that may otherwise fail if the wrong amount of dirt is used or the dimensions are incorrect.

Fill dirt is found beneath the top layer of soil and does not contain organic matter, such as sticks or leaves. Instead, it is made solely of rocks, clay, and sand. This makes it more stable than topsoil, which may settle over time as the organic matter within it decomposes. The resulting shifting of topsoil can even create uneven foundations or allow water to enter and further destabilize the area. For these reasons, contractors use fill dirt to fill in holes and change the elevation of an area, among other uses, as opposed to any old topsoil. Fill dirt is also an essential part of many common construction projects, such as filling in a pool.
Unscreened Fill Dirt
This material is generated from our excavation projects in the adjoining Bethesda, Maryland area. We provide excavation for new home construction and commercial building projects.
What Is 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. The extra effort involved in creating screened fill dirt makes it more expensive than unscreened, though the higher price may be worth paying for the right project.

For starting a new lawn, if the top 4 to 6 inches of your existing topsoil are rich with organic matter, you can proceed with it.

How Deep Should You Plant Grass Seeds?
The recommended depth for planting grass seed is around 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch below the surface. The seeds can be dispersed using a spreader or by hand across an aerated lawn. Aeration enables the soil to be broken up just enough that the seeds are able to go below the surface without getting completely covered in a thick layer of topsoil.
As a general rule of thumb, the University of Minnesota Extension recommends that you should only be able to see about 10 percent of the seed’s shape above the ground when it has been tilled into the soil. You should start to see your grass seeds emerge around three weeks later.
The cost for fill dirt, can have devastating affects on your project budget.
Always apply straw or straw mat over your landscaped and seed project area.
