Minooka (IL) Soil

Need Soil in Minooka (IL)?

Working out in the yard in Minooka (IL) can deliver healthy and attractive rewards when you have the right gardening and lawncare materials.

While Illinois has good source soil, the earth alone typically is not enough to produce the flourishing results you envision. A Minooka garden or lawn also needs proper black dirt (topsoil) and gardening soil. The supporting soil helps build the foundation for a lush yard, lively flowers and vegetables, and bushes, shrubs & trees that are landscaping highlights.

Minooka (IL) Soil: Quantity for Pick-Up or Delivery

Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply specializes in professionally treated and stored soil for Minooka projects, including topsoil (black dirt), compost and specialty soil mixes.

Together, we’ll want to make sure you order the right amount of soil for your project. If you ever have questions about soil calculations, our experts are always glad to assist you.

A main thing to note is that one cubic yard of soil (27 cubic feet) weighs about 2,000 pounds (one ton). If you will pick up your black dirt or gardening soil with a truck or a trailer, you’ll want to confirm it can handle the total load. To ensure proper tractor loading, the trailer or vehicle should not have a cap or a rack*.

Your other choice is to have us deliver your black dirt or gardening soil to your Minooka residence. We’ll bring from 2 to 12 cubic yards straight to your home. You also can call us in the a.m. for same-day delivery!

*Please note Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply is not responsible for vehicle damage during loading or unloading.

Minooka (IL) Soil: Topsoil and Compost

Tim Wallace Soil Mix Supply is an automatic resource should you ever be thinking of “topsoil near me” in Minooka. We pulverize and store our black dirt at our facilities. We also keep it dry and ready for your project.

If your Minooka project involves a flower or vegetable garden, compost will provide organic matter and nutrients that help to break up soil structure for flower and vegetable growth. This makes compost a superb garden amendment.

Choices of Tim Wallace compost for Minooka gardens and lawns include:

  • Purple Cow Classic Compost: For soil aggregation that makes nutrients more available to the plant; 100% plant-based product with the OMRI Listed® seal for organic production
  • 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

Sometimes a vegetable garden might require an application of manure. If yours does, our Composted Horse Manure is aged and turned regularly for fortifying your efforts.
