CLASS II FILL SAND
A graded fine aggregate, produced by screening natural sand, a yellow to light brown material formed by the natural abrasion and disintegration of rocks by glacial or riverbed action. The particles can be sized from 3″ (75.0mm) to zero (dust), but are typically sized 3/4″ (19.0mm) to zero (dust).
Industrial topsoil screening is done using large machines that separate the finer soil particles from larger pieces of debris such as twigs, stones and large plant roots. The soil is fed into the machine by a front-end loader and falls onto a screen that vibrates to loosen the materials. The fine soil falls through the screen, and the debris is discarded outside the machine. The machines work in place and leave the screened soil where it is, and the debris is collected and disposed of. Other screening machines collect the processed topsoil and send it to distribution warehouses for bagging or to garden centers and nurseries where it is sold by the truckload.
Unscreened topsoil is a clean farm topsoil with some rocks and clay chunks in it. More rocks and clumps of clay makes for a better filling soil for large areas. Unscreened topsoil doesn’t wash away like other soils like screened topsoil or pro-mix soil because of its heavy consistency and its clay content doesn’t allow unscreened soil to turn to mud when it is rained on. Use unscreened topsoil when working in areas that needed to be filled 6 inches or more.
