Gardening Soil, Topsoil Near Me / Joliet (IL)

Are you working on a lawncare or garden project in Joliet (IL)? The garden and grass really can be greener on your side of the fence when you have the right topsoil and gardening soil.

When you need to locate “topsoil near me” or gardening soil in Joliet, Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply has it available for pick-up or delivery. We also carry mushroom compost and soil blends for special applications.

Good soil provides the foundation for a lush lawn, vibrant flowers and vegetables, and bushes, shrubs and trees that become landscaping highlights. In addition to being your material supplier, Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply can answer your questions about using them the right way to achieve the results you desire.

Joliet (IL): How Much Soil Do You Need?

Once you place your order for topsoil or gardening soil, you can receive it in one of two ways. If you will pick it up yourself in a trailer or truck, simply remember that one cubic yard of topsoil (27 cubic feet) weighs about 2,000 pounds (one ton). Make sure your truck or trailer can handle the weight you will transport.

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

If you would like us to deliver your topsoil or gardening soil to your residence, we can bring from two to 12 cubic yards straight to your driveway. You can call us in the morning for same-day delivery as well!

Joliet (IL) Topsoil and Compost: Choices

Here at Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply, we pulverize and store your topsoil (also called black dirt) onsite. It will always be dry and ready for your landscaping project.

For Joliet projects involving vegetable gardens, compost will add organic matter and nutrients to your soil. This helps break up the soil structure, making the compost an optimal garden amendment.

The different types of compost we offer for Joliet gardens and lawns include:

  • 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 vegetable garden need manure for planting, our Composted Horse Manure is aged and turned regularly for assisting your goals.

Joliet (IL) Fun Fact
The origin of the name was most likely a corruption of the name of French Canadian explorer Louis Jolliet, who in 1673, along with Father Jacques Marquette, paddled up the Des Plaines River and camped on a huge mound a few miles south of present-day Joliet. (
