Soil Blends

Soil Blends

At Tim Wallace Landscape Supply, we always have your bulk topsoil for pick-up or delivery, including garden soil. We also carry mushroom compost and soil blends for specific needs.

If you plan to pick up your material, remember that one cubic yard of topsoil (27 cubic feet) weighs about one ton (2,000 pounds); you’ll want to be sure your vehicle or trailer can handle that weight. To allow for tractor loading, the truck or trailer also should not have a cap or a rack. (Please note that Tim Wallace Landscape Supply & Nursery is not responsible for damage to a vehicle during loading or unloading.)

If you would like topsoil delivery in our service region, we can bring up to 12 cubic yards to your residence (two-cubic yard minimum). Deliveries of compost or soil blends are likewise from 2 to 12 cubic yards. We will deliver the material right to your driveway. Call in the morning for same-day delivery!

Most all of our products are only available in bulk. All Composts, Garden Mix, Raised Bed Mix and Topdressing are available through our BUCKET PROGRAM at our Bolingbrook Garden Center as noted below.


Topsoil – also called black dirt – is pulverized and stored at our facilities. We keep it dry and ready for your landscape project. (Minimum for machine loading is 1/2 cubic yard )



Organic Mushroom Compost: Our mixture combines composted straw, horse manure and peat. 

Organic Compost: A by-product of recycled organic material such as leaves, vegetable scraps and small twigs turns into a rich soil amendment gardeners call “Black Gold”.

Purple Cow Classic Compost:  Purple Cow Classic assists in soil aggregation and makes nutrients more available for the plant. This 100% plant-based and organic product is OMRI Listed for organic production. Seed, manure and weed free.

Compost adds organic matter and nutrients to your soil and helps break up clay soil structure. It is the best amendment for vegetable gardens.

Mix and Till Garden Soil Amendments

Our Mix & Till compost and sand amendments are ideal for gardeners who have an ample amount of good black dirt and want to replenish and reinvigorate their garden’s soil. These products perform best when roto-tilled or hand-blended into the existing soil. Each mix is a blend of your choice of compost and your choice of sand – coarse or fine (depending on which type of garden you have) mixed at a 50% / 50% ratio of compost and sand. Call us for more information and to schedule your delivery. 

Each soil mix is taken through our 4-step blending process:

Step One: All required materials are gathered from their enclosed, covered storage bins

Step Two: The materials are then piled atop of each other in our mixing bin, and turned over several times using an end-loader

Step Three: Once blended, the soil mix is mechanically processed in our diesel-powered pulverizer

Step Four: A conveyor belt attached to the pulverizer moves the blended product up where it drops the finished soil mix into the bed of the delivery truck
