BEACHSIDE GARDENS & GIFTS
Bill has been nurturing plants since yearly childhood. This is where he first got his nick name "Billy Bee", learning to pollinate an indoor miniature citrus tree, growing orchids and "Chicago South Side" urban garden. While attending college, Bill worked for Fort Collins Nursery,
Fort Collins, Colorado. Here he quickly learned the applicable part of the business and the unusual method of how to grow plants in the "cold desert" surrounding the areas. Bill obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Ornamental Horticulture with an emphasis on Landscape Design from Colorado State University in 1978. After graduating, Bill worked for a large company in central Illinois developing a new nursery and landscape operation. Here, he obtained his Tree Expert Certification license for the State of Illinois. In 1980 he moved back to Colorado to be sales manager of Western Evergreens, a nursery in the foothills of Golden, Colorado. In 1981 Bill and his new family moved to Long Beach, Indiana and started his own Landscape “design/build” and maintenance company. In 1988, Beachside Gardens & Gift Center was opened and, the family owned and operated, company has been growing with and for the local community ever since. It is now a "Second Generation' Family managed by Laura Bolton Kalk along with several other family members.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" But with Plants, more times than not, it is too late for a cure after the damage has been done. We believe that a well thought out plan can save many trees and other Natural Dunes plants on your property. A Consultation will help you make the right decisions to save these important plants before you start construction or renovation. Give us a call and set up an appointment today!
