I need about 60 cubic feet (about 2 yards) of good soil for my new raised bed. Any advice on where to get some? The bags at the garden centers are just so expensive to buy large quantities. I live in Moore.
If you have access to a pickup truck, I know of some bulk soil places that will charge you by the yard. I picked up some cotton burr compost and cow manure compost from Minick Materials in Norman, and they just used a front end loader to scoop up some and dump it in the back of my truck until it was full. Unfortunately Minick doesn't list their prices on their website. There's also a place called Murphy Products in OKC. I linked their website instead since they have prices for everything.

The phone number for Murphy's is 1-800-TOPSOIL. When you call, ask for Dirty Harry. If you are good at talking dirty, Harry will make you a deal.
at K & K on Sooner Rd in Moore, you can get good soil dumped in the back of your truck for $65. I filled 3 2x8 beds with it. It's good stuff too.
I do have a pick-up truck. I'll check these places out! Thank you all!
I recently got some garden-ready soil from Minick, I think it was about $30/cubic yard. I don't have a truck so had to pay an exorbitant amount for delivery.
Last year we had good discussion about the garden ready soil sources for raised beds. I am linking thread below. -Chandra
