Im going to start building a project home this year,my block which is 20m wide by 50 deep needs to be built up slightly to make sure i get drainage to the street,im going to first get a pool dug out and concreted.My soil is clay,should I use that to build up my land or should I get pol company to take it away and get the builder to bring in their own fill.I guess my main question is,is clay alright to use to build up the land or is sandy soil /fill better
