Annandale, Virginia (webnewswire) February 13, 2019 – The Baltimore fill dirt contractor at Dirt Connections released a blog outlining the steps that homeowners should take before receiving a delivery of Maryland fill dirt. Properly preparing for your delivery can make the process, from delivery to cleanup, run more smoothly.

Fill dirt is a type of subsoil that has a small amount of organic matter within it, making it ideal for projects that will require the dirt to be compacted. It can be used for a variety of home improvement and construction projects. Fill dirt can often smooth uneven ground, fill in holes, create different levels within a backyard, and bolster foundations, among other uses. Failing to adequately prepare your site for your delivery of fill dirt could prevent successful delivery and placement of the dirt, delaying your project and potentially costing you more money to complete it. Following the correct steps is therefore critical to ensure a timely and professional finish to your project.

Your fill dirt delivery will likely include several truckloads of dirt, depending on the size of your project. Before receiving such a large quantity of dirt, ensure that you will have enough space near the project for it to be placed and for the dump truck to be positioned. The property should be free of any obstructions, such as rocks and tree stumps, which should be removed prior to the delivery. Before digging, call 811 to confirm that there are no obstructions below the ground or restrictions regarding building on the property. Carefully measure the areas in which fill dirt will be used and calculate the amount of dirt needed for each of these sections to prevent over-purchasing. After these steps have been completed, your land will be ready for a fill dirt delivery.
