If you are more of a "D.I.Y. " type person, we also offer weekly delivery to your home or business. We deliver plant material every Friday during the growing season. It is first come, first serve, so make sure to place your order early in the week to ensure that you make that Friday's list.
For delivery, planting, and design, we service a 12-15 mile radius around our main office. Our large service area covers over 1,200 square miles of the Western Suburbs. Certain cities, like Naperville, are within our service area, but have a purchase minimum and travel fees in order to cover the extra time it takes to get there. This is typically on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions regarding whether or not you are in our service area, you can text or call us at: 630.584.4424.
