Is this special black earth?

Walmart has their own branded stuff for $1 regular price all the time.

I bought nearly 100 of these bags.

That exact same bag has been at 0.99$ regular price at Reno Depot (QC Rona offshoot) since forever. And then you can get it for 0.84$ during their frequent 15% off everything promotions.

Edit: LOL, I just checked and reno depot is having another 15% sale this Saturday. It is the 3rd one I can count since mid-May.

I buy a lot of black earth, either from Rona or Walmart for lawn repairs. I find it doesn't do such a good job by itself, but when I mixed it with some soil from my veggie garden, it worked like gangbusters.

When I actually read the instructions on the bag of black earth that came from Walmart, it said that it should be used as a soil 'amendment'. RTFM, then. YMMV, of course.

A RONA store near me has an unadvertised BOGO deal on the Voila soil. So, a few days ago, I bought another 40 for $1.49/2 each = $0.75 per bag + tax. Best deal yet, IMHO. :)
I guess I should go back and see if they will do same deal with the new webprice of $0.99/2 = $0.50 per bag!!!
Now to try to find some sheep manure ...

I know this isnt good for garden beds, but what could be added to make it similar to what triple mix so it can be used on garden beds for flowers?

Says 10% organic content from the old thread, so add peat moss or compost for garden beds. Lowes has the 3.8L big bags of peat moss for $6.99 and no tax this weekend. That's the cheapest I've seen so far for peat moss (Rona/HD/Lowes/Walmart/garden centers)

How is this for grass?
Can I put it all over my lawn and spread grass seed over it? Will that be okay?

I bought some bags of black earth from Home Depot a few years back and they had a ton of sticks and roots and chunks of wood etc, mixed in the dirt. It was annoying trying to pick all that crap out after spreading it on my lawn. Earlier this year I bought some of this black earth from Rona and it was just dirt, no extra chunks of debris so I was pretty happy with it. I would buy more if I needed it.
