Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Minty1 Poor Quality - worse than my usual cheaper bags
My usual top soil was out of stock at HD, and as I needed some that day, I thought I would spend a little extra for 'Premium' quality from Scotts.
What a disappointment. The soil was full of stuff other than soil. A lot of rubbish, including plastic, wood and stones.
There was far more twigs than I've seen before. I know that may be the 'organic' mater, but there's just too much of it.
Also, the soil was clumped together really hard, so it took 5 minutes per bag to get it nice and smooth.
I wish I had not spent the extra 20c per bag!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Writeon This stuff is just fine to use, as advertised.
I don't get the trolling about this product other than there must be a lot of rookies out there who think they're going to get the highest grade of top soil for $2.09/bag. This stuff works just fine for filling-in low spots, holes or doing some general top-dressing to smaller yard areas. Would I build my entire yard out of it? - no; but, that isn't what it's made for. Insofar as the "sticks" and other material some have commented about, there are very few. I do what you should always do when using any top soil - I "sift" it through a 1/2" square 4'X4' metal screen. The sticks or anything else that remain after sifting were not more than a cup full. This soil was easy to work with and did a great job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobG Surprised for the price
I planned on using this as a base for three raised garden beds while buying a more "premium" top soil for the final layers. I bought 80 bags and was impressed enough that I will use this for all the soil in the beds. I found no rocks. Yes it does have some small twigs but they are not big enough or strong enough to even poke through the bag. Very small and fine. The bags are compacted so it's best to break it apart once you get it un-packaged. I didn't have any dry bags. Soil was moist and had a good feel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NoGood123 WERE IS THE SOIL!!!!!!!
I bought 50 bags for a neighborhood boy to work on my backyard. I come home to find that my Premium topSOIL was missing the SOIL!!!! It rained 2 days later and I was left with a yard full of mulch like twigs. Scotts has been a number 1 choice for me BUT this PREMIUM topSOIL is anything BUT premium!!! He threw all bags and receipt away so I have no proof of purchase...I am going to have to spend more money to clean up this disaster ...No thank you Scotts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 40ozBilly Not good topsoil. Full of contaminants and bugs!
I bought some of this for seeding and replanting. I found a large amount of sticks, plastic and other debris. After replanting I found a lot of tiny bugs which killed my plants. My mother mentioned to me that she had bought this topsoil and found a lot of bugs and worms as well as debris. Not much topsoil consistency at all. I am disappointed with this product and probably will not use again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DissappointedD Okay Scotts soil is good old black dirt and not mulch.
This product is finely ground mulch being sold as good old mother earth topsoil. I have tried to use it and grow Bermuda grass and failed. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JayMax33 70% mulch
Bought 6 bags of this to fill in yard, 70% of it was mulch and twigs, hardly and soil at all. There was also miscellaneous trash and metal pieces mixed in. Would not recommend .
