Asian-Inspired Garden in Chicago

asian garden

In this Asian-inspired garden design, we were able to use many of the client’s existing Japanese Maple trees and other shrubs or plants, simply transplanting them to areas that were better suited for their sun requirements and the overall garden design.  Take a look at the pictures and let us know what you think!

Fall is the perfect time to plant bulbs, trees and shrubs to get your garden ready for next spring!  Though it may seem like it’s starting to get too cold, this is actually the perfect weather to ensure that trees thrive after they are planted.  It isn’t too warm/dry and not yet too cold.  Though it is still very important to make sure that all of your new plantings are watered well, the typical weather conditions of fall (less heat & usually more precipitation), there is less worry of a drought .  Give us a call for a free estimate!  We’d love to start planning your new landscape for next year!  773-517-1198

Creativity with Containers

One of the easiest (and funnest) ways to decorate your storefront, yard, entryway, deck, porch or any part of your garden are containers.  They can be filled with any variety of plants, herbs, flowers, and grasses to create the perfect color and texture combination to suit your design and taste.  Combined with the container of your choice, each one is unique and easily adjusted to anyone’s preferences.  Take a look at some of the container gardens we’ve put together for clients and give us a call to schedule a free appointment!  We’d love to bring pops of color to your landscape, deck, garden, storefront or porch areas.

Front Yard Landscape Design in Evanston

This month, we had the pleasure of designing and installing a front yard landscape in Evanston, transforming their front yard into an inviting salutation of color and evergreens that will compliment their home with natural beauty year round.  We were able to work with some of their existing shrubs, simply trimming and planting a few more plants around them to fill in the space, saving them money in the process.  Some features to note are the pavers we laid leading to the side door, the Yellow Spruce we installed towards the back by the fence and the dark purple butterfly bush in front of the windows.  We are looking forward to hopefully revisiting this garden in the future when the plants grow and fill the space in a little more.  Give us a call if you’d like a little color added to your front or back landscape!

Small Front Landscape Design in Mt. Prospect

We spruced up this front landscape with just a few shrubs and low-growing plants, but even just these small additions did a lot to enhance the forefront of this suburban home.  Even a few shrubs in a small space can add considerable beauty and character to your home.  Give us a call for a free consultation!  We are happy to work with spaces (and budgets) of all sizes.

Condo Landscaping in Chicago

For this condominium front entry landscaping job, we were able to give them a more economical and budget-friendly contract by simply moving around many of their existing plants to areas where they would thrive better, flowering and bringing their intended beauty to the exterior of the building.  After also installing a few new plants of our own, we love the lush greens and colors that fill the entryway and perimeter of this large condo building.  Leave a comment or give us a call to schedule a free consultation!  We can work with budgets of all sizes to provide a landscape that will brighten your home’s (or condo’s) exterior.

Container Gardens

Container gardens are a quick and versatile way to add beauty to your lawn and home, especially if you don’t have a lot of room.  You can use them to adorn your front porch or walkway, or spruce up your back deck or small backyard.  Take a look at some pictures from a container garden we finished for a client!
