People in the metro region of Philadelphia looking to source dirt to fill a hole or a ravine, or for another purpose, could use DirtFill.com.
The new website has been set up to offer an online forum for people looking for dirt for a range of reasons and for people looking to get rid of any excess, while the site itself uses zip code software to help users locate each other.
A range of US cities are already served by the website, with users across the country taking advantage of the service for their construction or repair needs.
Kelby Bailey, vice-president for marketing of Cut and Fill, a firm that sponsors DirtFill.com, said: "DirtFill.com has been successfully serving our clients in Minneapolis, St Paul for ten years, Dallas, Fort Worth for three years and Seattle for the past two years."
