I've heard on your excellent radio show about the importance of increasing the slope of soil around the foundation of my house to keep water out.  You mentioned that we should use filtered ground soil and not regular top soil.  Well, I checked in my town and found no one who knows what filtered ground soil is or where to buy it.  Any advice.
