In 2002, we purchased land in Garden Prairie, IL (10 minutes west of Marengo, IL – 15 minutes off the I-90 NW Toll road). Today that 120 acre, automated Container/Propagation Facility produces 3 and 5 gallon container Shrubs and Evergreens as well as over 300,000 1 gallon Perennials and Grasses. The Propagation Facility utilizes climate controlled greenhouses and irrigated liner beds to consistently produce quality liners for the Garden Prairie container range and Kenosha B&B production. Producing our own liners ensures a more consistent availability of Mariani Plants container and field production.
In 2010, we expanded to our 40-acre Evergreen Farm (located at the corner of Rt. 20 and Garden Prairie Road). We have lined out spreading, broadleaf and upright Evergreens. This farm specializes in quick turn-around Evergreen material so our customers can regularly and frequently freshen availability.
