Topsoil & Gardening Soil Supply for Glen Ellyn (IL)

When spring and summer roll around in Glen Ellyn (IL), one of the joys of being outside is having a lush lawn and a vibrant garden. If you desire a flourishing landscape, it starts with having the right topsoil and gardening soil.

Soil for Glen Ellyn (IL): Determining How Much You Need

In addition to being your supplier of soil, Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply can answer your questions about using it the right way to achieve the best results. That includes helping you figure out the amount of soil you’ll need for your project. Simply call us at (630) 759-1080 to tell us more about your lawn or garden and we can calculate your soil quantity.

Once you place your order for soil, you can receive it in one of two ways:

Pick it up yourself in a trailer or truck. One cubic yard of topsoil (27 cubic feet) weighs about 2,000 pounds (one ton), so you’ll want to be sure your trailer or truck can handle the weight.

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

Have us deliver it for you. We can bring from two to 12 cubic yards of topsoil or gardening soil right to your Glen Ellyn driveway. Call us in the morning for same-day delivery!

Topsoil and Compost Choices for Glen Ellyn (IL)

Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply pulverizes and stores your topsoil (also called black dirt) at our facilities. We keep it dry and ready for your landscaping project.

If your Glen Ellyn landscape project involves a vegetable garden, compost will add organic matter and nutrients to your gardening soil. This helps break up the soil structure, making the compost a superb amendment for your garden.

Compost for Glen Ellyn 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

Should your Glen Ellyn vegetable garden need manure for planting, our Composted Horse Manure is aged and turned regularly to keep it ready and fresh for fertilizing.
