Compost (Nutrient Rich DIRT)
If you are in need of dirt right away, perhaps checking Craiglist everyday won’t be the most effective way (although you can still do that, especially if they are going to deliver it!). A widely forgotten place offer compost for free…the City Dump. Yes, Orlando Waste Management has a huge composting program and there are tons of dirt that you can go and pick up for free.
The one my husband goes to is off of Young Pine Road. Check the other OWM sites to see if they have free compost also. Realize that when you call them you have to use the word “compost,” they don’t refer to it as “dirt.” They will say they don’t have dirt, they have compost (a bit technical, but that’s how they operate). We still have yet to do a soil test, I will update, once I find out.
