One of the most important resources in the game is dirt, which can be used for everything from building walls to patching the holes. But do you know how to properly place dirt in order to make the most of it?
Our resident gamers will show you everything you need to know in this guide:
How to Place Dirt
Dirt is a basic block that may be found all across the map and clay soil can be obtained by harvesting them.
In most biomes, it is the topmost block off the ground and has a depth of four blocks or more, with the top layer holding a grass texture removed upon breakage.
The most suitable equipment you can use for unearthing dirt is a shovel, but it can be mined by hand pretty quickly with high stamina. You can also harvest dirt with a pickaxe, although a shovel  works best.
Dirt is no longer used for farming and thus has little use these days. It can still be used decoratively or to patch ground holes. To place dirt, go to the crafting menu and look for “ground,” then craft your favorite type.
Do know that you can’t just dump dirt into your quick slot and try to position it. You must first shape the earth into a ground, which you can use then to fill holes in the surface or concrete.
