First time posting here.
Not certain if this is the correct forum.
I'm doing some landscaping work and have
roughly 5 yards of clean dirt/soil if anybody
needs it; loose pile. The only problem is
I can't deliver it. You have to pick it up
and/or have it hauled away.
Well it could be anything, as you should see what they pass off as
topsoil to folks in Alabama. It oculd be anything from prairie soil to
blue marle clay to sand to clay gravel to mushroom soil that some
places import from the northern states. I have seen places use a front
end loader to just mix up whatever they can collect together be it
stuff vaccummed up from parking lots to recycled ground up ashpalt
roadways mixed with cow manure, and sawdust.

Where's the problem?
Having that much "top soil" precludes his living in city/town centre,
The use of the term Soil probably indicates British or European background,
So you are just looking froe an ex pat Brit living in the country.......
Now doesn't that make it easier to find him?
Not definitive. "Top soil" (or topsoil) is a common term in the US. It
is often applied to anything that isn't sand or solid clay when
flogged commercially. The use of "dirt/soil" indicates this may be
*good* dirt with some organic component, not just landfill.
5 cubic yards isn't *that* much for a USAsian suburban yard/garden,
and in fact, wouldn't be much of a problem or prize in the country, so
I'm guessing suburban, but not Major Metropolitan Area.
As an earlier poster wrote, all we have to do is check world satellite
photos for a new pile of dirt in a (probably) English-speaking
