In my many languages there is overlap between the words, earth, soil, ground, land. And in cases it could be misinterpret you would use world or planet instead of earth, (and country in stead of land for instance).
In (old) english aswell earth used to mean ground, soil, like the other germanic languages, its meaning just has come mainly mean the planet.
Unless this is another case of differences between American and British English
