Q:

I have heard on your excellent radio show about the importance of increasing the slope of the ground around the foundation of the house.  You have mentioned that we should use filtered ground (soil) and not regular top soil.  I have checked in my town (Champaign,IL) and found no one who knows what filtered ground (soil) is or where to purchase this filtered soil.  I need your help in solving this problem.  Many thanks.
