this award-winning Master Gardener knows winter is the best time to prepare projects for spring. use the freeze/thaw of winter to break any clumps. get the best DIRT now and don't compete for the high demand in spring. this DIRT was a lawn 17 years ago and recently was an alfalfa field, so it contains more organic matter than any previous or future loads. only lousy sub-soil DIRT containing NO organic matter will be available in spring. if you are renting a truck or trailer, come by to see the DIRT, as many think DIRT means "soil", which it is not. this DIRT is just the start of good garden "soil". in previous years, i sold soil amendments for $15 per 5-gallon bucket, but all of it has already been sold this year, but with time, you can make your own for free. read further...

1+ cubic yard in a pile around the corner on jay dr. from 6169 west chestnut ave. next to the sidewalk for easy loading anytime during daylight; park up on the sidewalk to keep mess to a minimum. WE WILL UPDATE the post if we see it is gone and replenish quickly from another pile. good for berms, foundation grading, or raised beds. organic in this instance means no chemicals have been used in 17 years, not that it has organic matter in the DIRT. covered during rain/snow, so it isn't mud. bring your own containers or tarp, and shovel. we remove rocks and roots. if you need more, you can dig down a foot below the sidewalk. first come first served; will not "save" for anyone. TAKE DIRT ONLY FROM INSIDE THE FRAME, not the wood, rocks, tarp, metal frame, or my mound gardens. offered by a master gardener. this is DIRT (not soil, but better than some "top soil" i've seen, that has sand added = adobe), NOT IMPROVED GARDEN "SOIL" (which takes 10 years to build), but there might be some mixed in. WE DO NOT REPLY TO EMAILS; just come by to get the dirt.

the hugelkultur mounds are NOT available. if you are curious about my gardening techniques, search "hugelkultur" and John Jeavons on the internet. i'm a member of the Littleton Garden Gang, that offers free classes on gardening in Colorado and has a plant sale each spring. see our facebook page and get on our email list. the internet is a good place to look for or post requests for local biomass: logs, branches, spoiled hay, or leaves that hold moisture and slowly improve dirt. Your municipality or tree companies might have free wood chips from a tree recycling program, but i use getchipdrop.com if you want a large load of wood chips delivered. I do not use horse manure because it may contain "persistent pesticides" which stunt many crops, or grass clippings that usually contain the weed killer 2,4 D and non-organic fertilizers.
