LaSalle Landscape Supply arose from the landscaping business of Dan Garlatti, a landscaper who sought to expand his business from taking care of homeowners' trees to also providing them. The 9-acre tree farm he and his crew have lovingly brought up now boasts dozens of species and more than 2,000 trees. Making the process of choosing a tree simpler for customers, Dan created a mud-free display area to give each variety of shade and ornamental evergreen its own spot to be easily viewed. Alternatively, guests can venture out into the field to choose a specific tree with the help of a professional, who can find homeowners a worthy match for their property. True to its origins, the tree farm and supply company also offers its long-honed landscaping services. In addition to seasonal yard cleanups and tree removal, the staff regularly makes house calls to help buyers plant or relocate a tree or talk an adolescent tree out of getting a trunk piercing.
