Dear Customer:
Welcome to Dune Country Landscapes 2003 wholesale plant catalog. This year DCL has an expanded list of offerings of woodland and savannah species. Our woodland plants are grown from local seed sources that we are pleased to identify for our clients. In our experience woodland species are often expressive of regional ecotype development; therefore, our efforts are to grow from seed plants that will thrive in the Chicago region.
This is our second year. We have been closely working with most of our clients to insure our mutual success. This season we offer plants in mostly 2.5” pots, but some plants perform better in plug, quart, or gallon size. Whatever size, we guarantee your purchase 30 days after purchase. Please notify us should anything be out of ordinary so that we can replace your plants or provide a refund. We can deliver up to 90 miles from New Buffalo at this time for no extra charge on orders over $250.00, and we will make delivery arrangements for orders of less. Please call for delivery. Our price list is below and is by pot size. Exceptions are noted in the plant descriptions.
In addition to plants DCL offers other services. We offer restoration consulting, planning, & execution, pesticide applications & tree injections, & seed sale.
