Boyce Offers the Cream of the Organic Crop

Registered Landscape Architect Rob Boyce, owner of Natural Environments, is a plant guy. He sells certified organic plants and veggies at his greenhouses and area farmers’ markets, as well as offering landscape and design services; plus, he’s a florist. The Lake Zurich greenhouses carry heirloom vegetable plants, native and pollinator plants, organic blooming annuals, perennials and herbs, compost and mulch in bags, available every day.

      Boyce says, “Stop into our vintage greenhouses to see just how we grow all the beautiful plants. Our sales area is a meandering path with displays that help you visualize how plants will look in your garden. Step into the greenhouses and select your plants from an even larger selection.” He can be found Wednesdays at Ravinia Farmers Market; Thursdays at Antioch Farmers’ Market; Saturdays at Deerfield Farmers’ Market; and Sundays at Buffalo Grove Farmers’ Market.

      “At Natural Environments, providing great products and a personalized shopping experience are more than just words—it’s what we do,” says Boyce. “Our knowledgeable staff shares a passion for the green industry and is always willing to take the time and make sure the customer’s wants and needs are met.”
