    A supplier here gets $25.00 per cu-yrd....thats picked up,they deliver about $1.00 per mile round trip.

    This is good quality screened from a landscape supplier.

    My topsoil man brings me a 10 yard load any where in the county for $60.00. Good service and I buy from him often. I can't own and operate a dump truck that cheap.
    Works well for me.......

    Ok then, here in CT area it runs from $15 a yard to $21 a yard from a borderline topsoil, humes, compost material mix (if you could call it that .. more like the residue of the bottom or the swamp) to good top quality material 1/2 screened. Delivery is about $6 per yard.... that should be a good ball park for this area...


    Check with the local guys to see what they are charging.....
