    Good morning: I could use help on a topsoil question. I moved a building for a customer and had to dig about 1' around as the building was that deep in the ground. Question is i wll back fill with dirt I took out with the loader but need to know if I can use cow feed lot compost for the topsoil? The compost is at least three years old and is totaly composted down and only smells as compost. Anyone?
    Thanks A.S.D.S. Mowing:confused:

    Don't just layer the compost on top, mix it in with the backfill and you should have a good soil to grow what you need.
