I believe I actually said that in the past with that stuff.

Most people's reviews of the stuff were "you get what you paid for" but generally positive and happy with the results.

Generally positive doesn't mean it'll help you with your goal. See what I learned over the years with RFD is a lot of people know the price of something but not it's value.
I learned a long time ago with Yardwork and housework is Labour is expensive even if doing it yourself. Sweat equity might be free but why spend the effort putting in "garbage" when you can spend a bit more and get the results you want.
You'll see this when people shop for the lowest price paint and have to do 2-3 coats vs guys whole pay more for Benjamin Moore or SW and save on labour/time.
Back on topic: What's wrong with Black earth? It's got next to no organics and nutrients in it for that you want Triplemix. Blackearth is filler, that's why it's so cheap. If you're going to spend the hours and hours to wheel barrel and raking dirt around, don't you want to do it with dirt that's going to help your lawn grow? Of course you do. That's why I'd rather get a cubic yard of garden soil or triplemix trucked to me (also avoids the mess in my car).
