From Our Website

Since the early 1950's, the Schwarz Family name has been well known in Addison and the surrounding area. Otto Schwarz started out in the egg business. For many years, the barn was the home of "Otto's Egg Basket" where he raised chickens and sold eggs in the community. In the 1960s, Otto began to grow trees as a hobby. It did not take long for this hobby to grow into a successful business for his family. In 1971, Otto's sons, John and Richard, joined their father in starting Schwarz Nursery. Their goal was to grow trees and shrubs of the highest quality and provide professional landscaping services to their community.

We are a full service garden center with over 7 acres of shopping area. We specialize in single stem trees from 2" - 5" diameter, multi-stem trees up to 16' tall. We carry a full line of hardy shrubs, perennials, roses, vines andground covers. In the spring we are fully stocked with annuals and vegetables. With our complete line of Bonide products our knowledgeable sales staff can help diagnose and solve any insect or disease problems you have had. Each spring we restock the garden center with a new selection of pottery, statuary, fountains, furniture and garden art.

The Schwarz family and staff have been proud providers of landscape design & installation services to families like yours for more than three generations. Whether you are the first owner of a new home or need a landscape makeover, our professional designers can create a plan that gives your home a vibrant and refreshing new look. We offer several different plans. For our Complete or Partial Landscape Design, one of our designers will meet with you at your home to discuss your ideas, requirements and any concerns you have.

Trees sold at our Garden Center are grown at our nursery field located on Rt. 64 just west of the town of Sycamore. On this 40 acre farm we grow many varieties of shade and ornamental trees as well as Pine and Spruce. We take pride in knowing that all trees we install are grown in Northern Illinois, in soil that is compatible with the soils we have in the Chicago suburban area. By growing our own trees, we know that they have been properly pruned and maintained, giving us the highest quality plant material available.

Let the professionals at Schwarz Nursery do all the work for you. We provide installation on all trees, shrubs and perennials. Charges are based on the price of the individual plant. Whether it is one tree or an entire landscape, our experienced landscaping crew will do an outstanding job.
