“The quality and service we have enjoyed from Country Road Greenhouses for the past 20 plus years has consistently exceeded all of our expectations. You have truly acted as a partner; not just in the careful coordination of our ever changing project schedules with the timing of cutting back of plants or propagating new ones, but also in taking the role of teacher, mentor and consultant with our management, the landscape architects we work with, and above all, our staff in the field.”

Al Roloff
Natural Resources Manager
DeKalb County Forest Preserve District

The DeKalb County Forest Preserve District has purchased plants from Country Road Greenhouses for over twenty years. Whether for wetland, prairie or woodland, their plants have consistently been the highest quality. The broad selection of species, the large number of local genotypes, and the competitive pricing makes them our primary supplier of native forbs, grasses and sedges.

“Your plants, your prices, and your service are the best. I know I can depend on Country Roads to deliver healthy plants on time. I can always count on your nursery to have my orders ready to go when I need them. I can’t tell you how important that truly is.”

“You are my vendor of choice and I let everybody know that!”

Bob Stanton
Prairie Restorationist

“I had an opportunity to do some direct comparison of your plugs to those of other local suppliers. I was supervising a crew installing plugs on native plant installation projects. There was plant material from 3 different suppliers involved. The Prairie Plugs from Country Roads were consistently larger, better formed, had better root structure, and were less prone to frost heaving.”

Dan Brown
Grundstrom Landscape Maintenance, Inc.

“We used your plant material quite extensively for our Lake County Forest Preserve District project ( Independence Grove ). The plant material performed wonderfully. The plugs were in the ground for only about a year and the root growth was unbelievable, and of course the plants showed it! We look forward to utilizing your native plant material in the future.”

Peg Jensen
Village of Wayne, Illinois

“The plants we received were three times the size I expected and not one died. When Larry said the plants would be delivered at a certain hour, they were. I wouldn’t buy any where else.”
