Mix to plant spruces in

I am going to order about 25 spruce trees to serve as a windbreak. I think I'm going to have to do a shallow planting method where I scoop a little out of the ground, but most of the root ball will be above it. I think that my soil either drains poorly or it's from the pool being drained into the yard--either way I think I need to raise the tree plantings.

What kind of planting material/mix would you suggest I use to bury the rest of the exposed root ball that would be a good choice for spruce trees?
