What you need to know about Fill Dirt

At Everglades, we understand that investing in your home’s landscape is critical in, not only making your property more aesthetically pleasing, but also in increasing the value of your property. One of the most common materials used in the landscaping process is fill dirt. Fill dirt is earthy material which is primarily composed of sand, clay, gravel, or a combination of the three, which is commonly used to fill empty spaces in the soil or to otherwise change the elevation of real property. Unlike dirt containing organic matter which is more vulnerable to natural elements, fill dirt does not contain organic matter and will not shift or move over time. This makes it ideal as a solid foundation for use in many projects such as construction, septic systems, and building up landscapes.

Fill dirt is best used as a base a cost-effective material for building landscape features. While it does contain some topsoil, its composition, the type of organic material (such as lumber, shredded trees, and other landscape clippings, and inorganic materials (such as rocks, concrete, crushed cinderblocks) and texture are inconsistent. It may contain some topsoil from a previous landscape project, however if it was sourced from a landscape where plants already absorbed most of the nutrients the fill dirt would be unable to support the growth of plants without supplemental fertilization. The origin of fill dirt can range from a demolition site to a road clearing and leveling project. Our fill dirt is purposefully cleared as much organic material as possible. The common use case for fill dirt is creating hills and raising a yard’s grade creating pleasant contours. Yards that use fill dirt for features should have nutrient rich topsoil placed on top.

Our professional landscape design clients use fill dirt to mold landscapes to create unique features. Raised landscape features such as a flower bed or a raised fountain require large amounts of material to create a solid foundation. Fill dirt is a low-cost option that has advantages when used as a base for landscape features that have plants growing. Fill dirt provides artificially constructed landscape feature with drainage. When using concrete or other solid materials you may hinder the feature’s ability to drain itself of water. Insufficient drainage can lead to soil and aggregate erosion, fertilizer runoff, and it may cause root suffocation. Additionally, may of our clients use fill dirt to repair large holes created from the removal of structures with deep foundations.
