Dirt is a Block in Minecraft Pocket Edition that was added in the Pre-Release. It is a commonly available Block as it spawns in every Biome, either on the surface or underground. It can be mined by using a Shovel or hand. It was one of the first Blocks added into the game.


Main Article: Grass Block

When Dirt is placed in a light level of 9 or above, it can turn into a Grass Block if there is a Grass Block directly adjacent to it.


Dirt is mostly used for Farming by tilling it into Farmland using a Hoe. The Player can also use it to make a Grass Path, by letting it become a Grass Block and tapping it with a Shovel. It is also a common building Block which can be used to create cheap, makeshift structures.


  • There are many blocks in Minecraft PE that are based around Dirt, including Grass Paths, Mycelium, Podzol, and Tilled Farmland.
  • Mycelium can spread onto Dirt Blocks in Mushroom Islands.
    • The only way to stop this is to create a barrier of non-Dirt Blocks such as Cobblestone between the Mycelium and the Dirt.
  • Dirt is the second most common Block in the game (the first being Stone and the third being Wood).
