Hello,
You can purchase topsoil in bulk at a landscape supply company or at many local nurseries (for example Echters or Jareds in the Jefferson county area). You can find options in the yellow pages, or via a google search. HOWEVER, be aware that there is no legal definition of topsoil, so no regulations on what it contains. So there is no guarantee that any given retail business is the best place to purchase good quality topsoil. You should examine the topsoil before you buy, using the guidelines in this good publication from Oregon State University:
