Downers Grove (IL) Soil: How Much Do You Need?

If you have a truck or trailer for picking up your gardening soil or “topsoil near me,” remember that one cubic yard of topsoil (27 cubic feet) weighs about 2,000 pounds (one ton). You’ll want to be sure your truck or trailer can handle that weight.

To ensure proper tractor loading, the trailer or vehicle should not have a cap or a rack. (Please note that Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply is not responsible for any vehicle damage during loading or unloading.)

You can also have us deliver your topsoil or gardening soil to your residence (two–cubic yard minimum). We’ll bring up to 12 cubic yards straight to your driveway. You also can call us in the morning for same-day delivery!

Downers Grove (IL) Topsoil and Compost

We pulverize and store our topsoil (also called black dirt) at our facilities. Your topsoil is always dry and ready for your landscaping project.

If your project involves a flower or vegetable garden, compost adds organic matter and nutrients to your soil to help break up soil structure, making the compost an ideal garden amendment.

We offer different types of compost for Downers Grove gardens and lawns.

  • Organic Compost: By-product of recycled organic material such as leaves, vegetable scraps and small twigs that become a rich soil amendment referred to as “Black Gold”
  • Organic Mushroom Compost: Composted straw, horse manure and peat
  • Purple Cow Classic Compost: Support for soil aggregation that makes nutrients more available for the plant; 100% plant-based product with the OMRI Listed® seal for organic production

Shoveling soil and compost in garden

If your vegetable garden requires manure, our Composted Horse Manure is aged and turned regularly for supporting optimal results.

Downers Grove (IL) Fun Fact
The town’s first schoolhouse was built in 1844. The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad was extended from Aurora to Chicago through Downers Grove in 1862, boosting its population. The town was incorporated in March 1873. Its somewhat unusual spelling (“Apostrophe-free since 1873”) remains a minor historical mystery. (
