Question Robertson County and surrounding folks!!!

Anybody around this area ever had to buy or put in some top soil. If so, who did you buy it from?
I need a couple of loads, but don't want the "sandy stuff"!!
This will be going in my garden area and I want the best. Being I'm not the one paying for it!!

Long story, but Tanos gas company is footing the bill, and I was told I could use anybody but him. I guess since they drilled on his place and a suit followed, there is still "bad blood" between the two!!!

Congratulations! It sounds like you laid the law down and are getting some satisfaction.

Well, it ain't done yet!!
The contractor doing the work "thought" he was done. The sumbuck never even bought off what his crew did. He came back out last Tue to look and we nearly got into it again. The 2 loads that he spread out over the crap he was supposed to scoop up, looked like some ole crap. He tells me it was "the BEST STUFF in Robertson county"!!! I know good and well he got the cheapest dirt he could find. Then I threw him for a loop when I said I will take soil samples, one from mine and one from his. That's when he tuned down and said if I can find better to let him know.

double s, terry sanders, may have some, although we usually just use them for fill dirt so im not 100% on top soil

I've ordered topsoil from edge before, other than a bunch of roots it was good soil.
but are affiliated with rios

Wow... I've heard they have some of the best prices around, Kelley Burt has always been a little pricey but the Burt's are good people with quality stuff. So if you want to make the company pay extra just for a little jab I would use them.
