Bulk & Residential Delivery Service Available | Call For Pricing & Delivery
Green Earth has #2 Topsoil for sale in the NW Ohio and SE Michigan regions. Sold both in bulk and per yard for pickup or delivery, #2 Topsoil is our blend of dirt that is harvested from the second layer of material, usually found 8-12” deep. This classification of dirt is left unscreened, keeping naturally occurring root systems intact. #2 Topsoil is not as dark in color as our premium grade topsoil; however, it is still high in organic matter. This product is ideal for large scale projects taken on by both homeowners and contractors that are looking to finish grade areas that will become lawns after construction.
All of our topsoil is custom blended using rich dark native farm soil from our sand pit located near the oak openings region which is known for having pockets of nutrient rich topsoil that can run 2-3 feet deep because of the ancient glacial lakes that were once here. Our all natural, organic topsoil is referred to by many as “Black Gold” because it is so dark and very rich in minerals and organic matter.

What Makes #2 Topsoil Unique?
#2 Topsoil contains the natural, rich properties of the local areas soil, and it is left unscreened and unprocessed. Beyond the manual mixing that occurs during the excavation, transport, and storage of the product, the product is left in its natural state. This product does not include supplemental compost that is found in our Garden Soil product, allowing for the topsoil to compact and provide a firm surface for outdoor activities. Since this product is not enhanced beyond its natural nutrients found in the local area, #2 Topsoil is ideal for areas that will be seeded for a lawn.
How is #2 Topsoil Made?
#2 Topsoil is the least processed of our materials. This product is made from the second layer of our harvested dirt from the native soil found at our own pit located in the Oak Openings region. Once harvested, the dirt is left unprocessed and transported to holding areas and our sales yard for storage. The manual mixing process created by the harvesting and transport process breaks down clumps and pockets of dense nutrients, spreading the rich ingredients throughout the finished product.
