Newbie Question: Will Menards top soil work for a planted tank?

I tried a search but could not find a answer, thanks in advance.
Any soil will work if you use the right amount. If you already own it give it a go, if you haven't bought it yet then consider taking a shovel to your back yard and bake it in the oven to kill any hitchhikers. Anyway the key is to use very very very little dirt in the tank and keep it under a thick cap of sand. 1/8 to 1/4 inch max of dirt under 2+ inches of sand.
