Ideal Soil for Lawns & Gardens in Lockport (IL)

Not all residents may be aware, but Illinois has some of the best soil on Earth. The state is particularly notable for its black dirt, with Drummer silty clay being the most common.

As Illinoisans, we can enjoy knowing we typically have good source soil as a start for our landscaping projects. At the same time, earth soil alone is not enough to nurture and sustain a vibrant lawn and flower or vegetable garden at your home in Lockport.

For your lawncare or garden project to flourish, you also need topsoil (black dirt) or gardening soil that has been properly treated and stored. The right professionally provided soil will help establish the vital foundation for the landscape and lawn you envision.

Lockport (IL): Topsoil (Black Dirt) & Compost

When you’re about to start a project in the yard and you’re looking for gardening soil or “topsoil near me” in Lockport, Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply is always ready to be the first call you make to find the correct materials and information.

We pulverize and store our black dirt for your project at our facilities in Bolingbrook. We also keep it ready and dry for either pick-up or delivery.

When you add compost to your flowers or vegetables, you give your garden organic matter and nutrients that will help to break up the soil structure for favoring growth, making it a superb amendment.

Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply offers different types of compost for lawncare and gardens in Lockport:

  • Organic Compost – by-product of recycled organic material such as leaves, vegetable scraps and small twigs that become a rich amendment known as “Black Gold”
  • Organic Mushroom Compost – composted straw, horse manure and peat
  • Purple Cow Classic Compost – 100% plant-based product for soil aggregation that makes nutrients more available for the plant

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