grading soil around foundation

Asked July 1, 2019, 10:13 PM EDT

Hello, What type of soil is best to re-grade around foundation? For example, should I use top soil, sand, or something else? To replace what has been lost due to erosion, I will need to replace 2-4" where the dirt and foundation meet and slope from there. Thank you.

Bags of top soil are fine. Try to use ones that are not heavily or almost entirely organic amendments (There are some that seem to be primarily old decomposed mulch.)
