This is nothing but old mulch and Peat Moss. It is NOT for planting. Even the product's web page says it's not for planting. I may be able to use it for mulch, but it's a poor product even for mulch.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dust the product is ONLY sticks
The bag says consistent texture, no sticks. I bought some bags and they were 90% sticks!!! I used two bags before realizing i was dumping a bagof sticks into my yard. This product is more than double the price of generic topsoils sold at Lowe's and HomeDepot. I was dissapointed with the generic brands as they had "some" sticks. I chose this product and got NOTHING BUT STICKS. TERRIBLE PRODUCT. The bag weighs about one pound BECAUSE IT'S ALL STICKS!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by au5599 DO NOT BUY WASTED MONEY!!!
Home depot had 2 picks this one and a cheaper one. I figured name brand company they should have better quality.
My project consisted of filling in next to the new concrete pad and sidewalk poured a month earlier. Total of 40 bags.
I seen a couple bags on the pallet with plant roots or leaves sticking out of the bags. I made sure to skip those ones.
This was back from April to May. Well after putting it all down I first sprayed weed killer that was safe for grass. Then let that sit for a few days. Then put down Scotts turff builder grass seed. Well I have things growing but it isnt grass. Its some kind of weeds. Big think ones. Some are almost half an inch think. Once you pull them out its like there was never any grass seed put down. I used enough that would cover 1400 sq feet. But no grass. I have used grass seed in normal dirt and even on top of clay dirt and got grass to grow in less time. Pure waste of money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kiran Top soil or mulch?
I'm a first time gardener. We started preparing soil for our vegetable patch. I bought 4 bags of miracle grow garden soil thinking that the soil to plant in. It was my ignorance and mistake. Up on reading the instruction I figure it needed top soil to be added. Next day I went back to buy 11 bags of Scott's premium topsoil. Up on adding it to the soil .....I saw it was full of sticks, stones and various plastic pieces. Not much soil at all!! It looks more like mulch! Now we need to re do the whole plot! :-(((
If I had read the reviews before, I'd not have bothered to buy it in the first place.

Scotts products have gotten Really BAD. Miracle Grow and Scotts are the same company. I went to a much better quality product, and got ALOT BETTER results. I stopped buying all miracle grow AND Scotts products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Linda Soil from a cow pasture??
Ths soil was full of grass seed found in cow pastures to feed cattle. Ruined my yard with
unwanted vegetation and made the work of filling holes from a fallen tree a major job.
