About Us

Arthur P. Weiler started his career working at Twin Nurseries, a family-owned business in Prairie View, IL, which began in 1915. Arthur worked for his father and later managed the business when his father semi-retired in 1950. In 1957, Arthur purchased 13.5 acres on Route 22 near Lake Zurich, IL and changed the name to Arthur Weiler Nursery. The business was growing, and with need for expansion, Arthur purchased 110 acres in Zion IL, where the main office is located.  The company incorporated in 1973 and changed the name to Arthur Weiler, Inc. Arthur’s son, Glenn, joined the company in 1976 and now is president. Glenn purchased an additional 51 acres of land on Route 173, just 4 miles from the main office. Currently, Phaedra Weiler (Glenn’s wife) is the business manager; Arthur D. Weiler (Glenn’s son, 4th generation) is the nursery manager.


Weiler grows an extensive line of trees, shrubs, evergreens, and perennials in finished sizes on 200 acres. We take care of seven acres of pre-dug plants that are placed on drip irrigation and fertilized to maintain vigor and health. Our above ground material makes it easy to fill those last minute orders.



Weiler’s sustainability is maintained by minimizing our carbon footprint that the company tries to reduce within the environment. Every tree that Arthur Weiler, Inc. grubs is put through the tub grinder which creates mulch that is used within the nursery. Local horse farms provide the nursery with clean manure to reclaim the nutrients in the earth.


The nursery sells to landscapers, nurseries, municipalities, and local gardeners throughout the Midwest. Arthur Weiler, Inc. is here to offer our customer base with quality products at a competitive price.  Customer service is #1.  Arthur Weiler, Inc. maintains a small- loyal employee base to offer excellent customer service.


 Arthur Weiler, Inc. is members of the Illinois Green Industry Association (IGIA), Wisconsin Green Industry Federation (WGIF), and, the Ornamental Growers Association (OGA), which keeps us involved in changes and improvements in our industry.


Arthur Weiler, Inc. is located 4 miles East of I-94 on the Illinois/Wisconsin state line. This is the last exit on I-94 before Wisconsin (Russell Road). Our location is close to Gurnee Mills Shopping Center and Six Flags Great America.
