    Check with local quarries/gravel pits. They often sell dirt from their operations.

    Hallett Materials

    There's one in Pleasant Hill.

    I live in Bondurant.....I bought 8 ton of river rock and some dirt from Huber Grading in Bondurant. It was pretty cheap and they delivered it. Not sure if that helps.

    Re: Blackdirt Altoona/Bondurant/PHill?

    I had quite a bit of dirt hauled in for a decent size landscape project several years ago.

    By the time I had it delivered, then shoveled it into a wheel barrel and moved around the yard, I wondered if this was the right way to go. Shoveling that wet heavy black soil is an energy burner and slow. Then I didn't have enough and had to finish with buying more 40lb bags of top soil.

    After I was done, I sat down and did the numbers. I could of nearly broke even with less effort and without the hassle of shoveling the dirt into a wheel barrel, by just buying 40lb bags of dirt for it all...much easier to handle, move and drop.

    Obviously the size of your project will determine plus/minus.

    The grass always looks greener, on the other side of the fence, but the dog over there might be meaner, on the other side of the fence… Stay in your own yard, play in your own yard!

    Go to a Lowe's, Menards, Home Depot, and buy a pallet and have them deliver it for you. I bought top soil at Lowe's for 98 cents a bag today. A pallet would be 39.20 + tax and delivery. This way, if it rains, you aren't dealing through a pile of mud.

    eeck..that is pricey. Call almost any sod place and they'll usually have some and will deliver if needed. Just got some today from Don White & Son's.

    Covered what I didn't use today with a tarp in case it rains tonight.
