Excavated earth

Rob Banwell asks:


I have recently had a huge amount of earth dug out from under the concrete floor of a barn and cow shed. It was dug down to about 4 feet, 1.3 meters. It is now sat on an uneven grass lawn and i was hoping to use the earth to level the garden. Is this earth any good for growing grass or anything else? Thanks, Rob


The soil is most likely quite void of any organic matter and nutrients I would mix the soil with some hummus material and compost to add nutrients to the soil before planting.

Happy gardening!
