Default Cinder Blocks

Where around LC is the cheapest place to get cinder blocks?

Carol's mom and Jayden want to start a garden and I figure this would be the easiest way to build a bed. Also, where should I go to get the bedding material?

Paul, go to the Gillis saw mill and get a load of soil conditioner. it's a sandy mixture to blend with dirt and it works well for what you want... you can mix some sacks of miracle group top soil into it and plants grow great
