Philosophy:
As a company we are always aware of the impacts our buying decisions have on the local community and strive to buy local as often as we can, in an effort to support local businesses and reduce the use of fossil fuels. Almost all of our supplies come from local and regional suppliers, and even our gas is bought from a local farm cooperative. We frequently use natural stone quarried in Wisconsin and as many native plants as possible in our landscaping designs, for a more natural look.  In an age when most plants are coming from the west coast, we purchase our plants from only regional sources, because we find they are hardier and better suited to our climate. 
History:
When I first conceived the Avant concept 25 years ago, I knew Avant could make a big contribution to the Midwest garden. Having visited many countries with rich histories in garden design, I saw that in most of the Midwest the concepts of garden rooms, outdoor niches, vistas, and natural landscapes were nowhere to be seen. Most of the homes and businesses I visited back then had a few shrubs and maybe some yews and arbor vitae as foundation plantings, along with some geraniums and daylilies for color. I saw immediately that the Midwest garden was missing an essential layer namely the ground layer of perennial plants to add richness, vibrancy, and year-round interest to the garden. The goal of Avant was then and is still now to use all of the tools, colors, surfaces, textures and emotions in our palette to create artistic, well-layered landscapes that uplift the spirits of those who live with our designed spaces.
