Landscaping materials...know of a good place?

well finally got all ther dirt filled to where i wanted it behind the retaining walls in front of my shack, wired up some malibu flood lights,
but now its time for some fancy rock. (or this RUBBER mulch shit my wife seen somewhere which i dont like the sound of)

anyway...is there any good places with a GREAT selection of materials to use. at decent prices?

the only place (and i havent looked for rock) was that place on rt83 and the schawn caleys or something bar but there like 1/2 mile from them.

but any other places big with nice stuff?

thanks guys.

I got my rock delivered from a place on Rt 30 between 59 and Renwick Rd. on the S side of the street. I cant think of the name. Its not a huge place put big in rock I guess. They were the most reasonable when I looked around. Western Landscape Supply maybe its called ?

Its on the right hand side and they have a bunch of wood outdoor furniture out front. I cant remeber the name of it though




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Huge place with good prices over in Bloomgindale I think.....a few miles west of D&B's.

Mulch, stone, boulders, pavers, rubber mulch crap for playgrounds, timbers, etc.

There is also a smaller place in Downers Grove/Lisle on Ogden where I bought my 5 tons of medium size boulders.

We get our mulch from the Home Nursery on Rt. 53 just north of Royce Rd. They have a lot of different colored rock on display.

Thats the place Im talking about although Ive never checked out their selection of "shit"

They also delivered 3 colors of stone at the same time if thats important to you.
