There's so much that changes in the MG landscape throughout the year...we thought a plant trial and garden blog was the best way to start sharing "what's new" and "what's happening with all those new varieties" with you! Visit often for updates on how trial plants are performing in the gardens and to see photos throughout the season as we grow and change!

Midwest Groundcovers Adopts a Highway

Hello again,
Midwest Groundcovers has adopted a highway! Some employees from Midwest Groundcovers, LLC have decided to donate their time to clean up IL Route 25. As you may or may not know, this is the road that our main facility is located. Since August, twelve employees have signed up to help out by helping clean up the road we drive on every day in our free time. It is quite the rewarding experience driving down the road and seeing how clean you've made it the day before. The clean-up area that we have adopted consists of 2 miles from Army Trail Road to our facility. Most garbage on the road consists of cigarette packs and beer bottles. Kind of scary when you think about it. If only those people were reading right now! I think when people litter, they don't think of the people that have to clean up after them. We at Midwest Groundcovers strive to Keep Illinois Clean! This has been a public service announcement. Until next time, have a great day!
