Front & Back Landscaping, and Patio Painting in Chicago

Earlier this month, we installed new front and back landscape gardens for this client in Chicago. Here’s a photo of their front yard before we got to work. Keep scrolling to see her garden after!


As you can see, we removed a lot of their shrubbery and trimmed their trees to let more sunlight through for their new shrubs.

Front Landscape & Porch Painting in Chicago

I designed this front landscape garden and then repaired and painted this client’s front porch.

Here is the client’s front porch before we began working:

And here it is after we cleaned up their garden, installed new shrubs and trees, repaired the steps and gave the entire porch a fresh coat of paint:

Painting & Wallpaper Project in Chicago

We finished this painting and wallpaper project in Chicago earlier this year.

Gray is a wonderful choice for a subtle, yet sophisticated color. It adds interest to a room while remaining neutral and understated. Gray also comes in a wide variety of shades from dark to light, as well as a variety of undertones from purple to green to blue.

Our painting contracts always come with a free color consultation where we can help you choose the perfect hue and tone to compliment the rest of the décor in the room.

Wallpaper has almost become a fear of many people seeking to update their home décor. But it’s nothing to be afraid of! When used in moderation, wallpaper can be a wonderful way to add texture, color and design to a room.

I love the way this bedroom’s wallpaper adds design and interest at the head of the bed. The rest of their décor – furniture, bedding and framed photos – are all simple, solid colors with little to no pattern, the perfect compliment to the busy pattern of the wallpaper.

Landscape Design 3-Year Update

Are 4 seasons of interest really possible in my garden?

This is such a common question and the answer is an emphatic YES!

Just take a look at the front landscape we designed and installed for a client three years ago. The pictures below were taken at the beginning and end of fall. (Click here to see their garden right after we planted.) Though this is just one season, it is easy to see how the colorful evergreens will begin to stand out even more as the shrubs continue to lose their leaves and berries.

Late Fall

The brilliant foliage and berries of the shrubs in fall that transition into the colorful evergreens and bright red branches in winter ensure that their home has great curb appeal year round.

Below are a few of trees from my own yard. I absolutely love their brilliant fall foliage and often use these trees in my own designs for clients.

The bottom line? Combine the brilliant foliage, bright branches and colorful evergreens with the blooming flowers of spring and summer and you have a garden with 4 seasons of color and interest!

More Porch Painting in Chicago

I repaired this front porch and repainted the steps, porch and doorway to match the façade of the house. This one small project (finished in a day or two) is a great way to brighten up your house’s curb appeal.

One small repair and a couple coats of paint later, and this house looks 100% better! If you are selling your home or are looking for an easy way to quickly improve your curb appeal, this could be the perfect project for you to take on.

Your entryway is the first thing a potential buyer will see and first impressions set the tone for the rest of the house. With many houses on the market, a clean, well-kept front entryway will attract buyers to check out the rest of your house. On the other hand, an entryway that is an eyesore in need of repair can turn many people away.
