Compost and Topsoil for Homer Glen (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 you!

If your garden project involves flowers or vegetables, compost will add organic matter and nutrients for helping to break up the soil structure. This makes the compost a superb garden amendment.

Compost for Homer Glen lawn and garden care:

  • 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 garden need manure for planting, our Composted Horse Manure is aged and turned regularly to keep it ready and fresh for fertilizing.

Figuring Out How Much Soil You Need

Once you place your order for soil, you can:

  • 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.)
  • request delivery to your Homer Glen residence. We can bring from two to 12 cubic yards of your chosen soil right to your driveway. Call us in the a.m. for same-day delivery!

Homer Glen (IL) Gardening Tip
In addition to the right soil, a garden needs a proper water system. Before you start planting your vegetable garden, set up a hose, a rain-barrel system or drip irrigation. This will make watering your garden easier than having to carry a watering can to and from a sink or a hose spout. Vegetables usually need about an inch of water per week. Keep track of rainfall in your area and water plants manually during dry weeks. Adding mulch also can help conserve water by reducing surface runoff, slowing evaporation and restricting weed growth.
