After 10 years of designing and installing landscapes in the Chicagoland area, Ramze Idriss, owner of R.F. Idriss Inc., decided that he needed to be able supply his own plant material in order to ensure its quality and availability.  In 1990 he moved the business (and the family!) to Sturgis, Michigan and so began The Idriss Company, Nursery and Landscaping.

Fast forward to 2017…

The nursery covers over 50 acres and contains a variety of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs, all managed with very little use of chemicals.  Customers looking for a tree are invited to the nursery to discuss the possibilities and have Ramze advise them on the best choice for their location.  (Please call first for an appointment.)

The landscaping portion of the business has grown tremendously and we are fortunate to have many clients we now call friends.  We take on all sorts of landscape projects, from simple tree placement and installation, to designing gardens, walkways and patios around a yet-to-be-built home.  Each project is individual – no ‘cookie-cutter’ designs from us! – and care is always taken to determine exactly what the customer needs and wants in their landscape.  Because our work is so personalized, we can accept only so many new projects each year – please call early!

Another service we are proud to offer is tree relocation. Our 50 inch truck-mounted tree spade can move trees up to 5″ caliper trunk. This is a useful service for the homeowner who wants to make room for an addition without totally losing the landscaping, or wants to add a tree from another location – whether it’s 10 feet or 10 miles away.  This can be a good way to save a sentimental plant, or save the expense of buying a large, ‘ready-made’ tree!  And if you’re building a new home, be sure to call for a pre-construction consultation to help decide which trees should stay or move.

For most situations, the best time of year to conduct this sort of move is spring or fall – and we do book up quickly. The cost of tree moving is individual for each project; please feel free to contact us for a quote or an appointment to visit the site and discuss the move.
