    can buy it off constructions sites for around $10/yard from contractors i know. or get it from the local mine at $16 a ton, $19.50 a ton delievered.

    the people at the mine use a factor of 1.4 tons per yard of topsoil. some advice....you dont want to buy topsoil when it had just rained because if you're paying by weight, then you are paying extra for water content.
