You can find a lot of previous questions about topsoil, types of soil available, typical prices in the Lawn & Garden > Landscape Materials link under Browse Projects.

Mulch and Topsoil would be your Search the List category to find vendors for this - or Landscaping if you want it delivered and spread/placed.

As well, if you have a sidewall trailer or pickup, some greenhouses and plant centers will load you up to haul it yourself - just be certain not to overload your vehicle. Dry topsoil runs about 85-100#/cubic foot with the peaty and silty loam types being at the lighter end, so about 2300-2700#/CY for most types which means 1/2 CY is a full load or even overload for most 1/2 ton pickups if dry, or 3/4 ton truck if has more soil in the mix. Soaking wet can run about 110-150#/CF, so about 3000-4000#/CY - so even 1/2 yard is a major overload for all but the heaviest duty pickups. Do NOT overload - failed wheelbearings or broken axle is NOT worth avoiding another trip or two.
