So, what do you do with this dirt? Mix it into your garden before planting plants/vegetables?

Can you use this as top dressing for lawn?

don`t every use this type of soil on your lawn, it`s full of ***** . the weed gonna be all over.

I don`t see the need of this top soil not even for gardening. i got a truck of gardening soil which i used part of it for my lawn and the rest for gardening.

I paid 32$ for each yard (which is equal to 27 bag) and no hassle.

Some stores don't have a limit. (ymmv) I'm sure most probably do, but Kingston store doesn't. Buy as much as you like until it's all gone. Dont wait any later then sat. It will fly out of there no matter what store u go to.

The general consensus seems to be that this "black earth" is not ideal for growing anything. But, it can be used to give soil a darker colour.

Last year I roundup my backyard and
got about 30 bags from RONA,
about 20 bags from Walmart,
10 bags from HD,
all the dirty cheap ones (it turns out Walmart $1/bag was the most expensive one I bought)
they turn out just fine, I think I did pull out some weed once.

I successfully used Home Depot's $1 "Garden Soil" to grow grass seed, so I'd expect that stuff to work ok as well. I suggest mixing it with a small amount of starter (high-high-low) fertilizer for best results.

Some RFDers prefer the soils that claim to be "weed free," but that claim comes at a cost.

We just got a small 9 inch stone wall added to our lawn, a little more than a half cubic yard. I was hoping to fill it with Pro-mix from Lowes and some mushroom compost but some people say because the pro-mix is soiless it might not be the best option for completely filling the raised bed. Should I add in some of these black earth bags as well?

Black earth would give you some volume, at a low price, that's a good thing. So, you could use it at the bottom of your bed. But, it will not do much to support growth.

So would you say filling the first half with this and the second half with pro-mix and compost would be a good idea?

I could also just fill the whole thing with pro-mix and compost, I'm not too concerned about the cost as there isn't very much needed.

I'm not too sure about the Pro-Mix. I've never used it myself. Personally, after using a few bags of anything cheap for filler (black earth would be fine) I'd probably go for a "triple mix" of top soil, compost and peat moss.

If this filler cheap stuff isn't great, that does people recommend buying from HD/Rona?
