Can anyone give me an estamated guess as to how much a small pick-up truck of top soil would cost me.I live in georgia and we are famous for our red clay dirt,which is what my back yard is completly made of.

Unless someone lives right in your area, I doubt you will get a correct answer here. A DUMP truck load of topsoil (sifted, even) is $120.00 here (S.E. Kentucky), but would probably cost $120,000.00 in California! [Big Grin]

Call your local nurseries. They usually sell topsoil in small quantities. A bobcat bucket full here is about $30.00 from a nursery.

Welcome to trying to garden in Georgia clay. [Eek!] [nutz] I am tilling up my yard for the 3rd time in 3 years, due to the grass keeps dying. I sent a sample to the extension office here in Walton County and found I have absolutly no nitrogen in the soil.
My solution rather than bring in topsoil is this: I am tilling in mulch and creating my own. Most tree trimming companies around here offer free wood chips/mulch if you haul it. It may take a little longer but much cheaper than truck loads of topsoil($120).
Good luck

Our local landscape material supplier charges $33.00 per cubic yard [of top soil], free delivery on order of 2 cubic yards.

1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet

A bag of 2-cubic feet of top soil cost any where from $3.59-$3.99/bag. One cubic yard of bagged soil will cost about $48.00 to $54.00
