You can purchase packaged top soil or garden soil or you can fill it with packaged potting soil. I prefer potting soil because it's lightweight and drains well but it can be expensive if the planter is large. Or you can try mixing your own soil - use one part garden soil and one part peat moss or compost. Mix well and fill your raised garden. Best wishes with your new garden.
