“Every plant must be placed in its proper surroundings to bring out its full beauty. Therein lies the art of landscaping.”
– Jens Jensen


We are known for sensitive, site specific design, using soft textural layers to evoke a sense of place and to create a quiet elegance. While we specialize in residential sites, our work also includes commercial and public projects. We pride ourselves on our versatility, designing all styles of landscapes, from naturalistic, woodland and prairie communities to more formal and traditional gardens. We also serve as environmental consultants and master planners for park districts, municipalities, and preservationists.

“Make no little plans;
they have no magic to stir men’s blood.”
– Daniel Burnham


We are a full service licensed landscape contractor with an emphasis on craftsmanship and quality. Our knowledge of native soils and plant communities and our depth of experience in all areas of construction enable us to build low maintenance landscapes that endure. The personal, hands-on involvement of our designers in the implementation of our projects insures that our clients’ visions are realized with the highest standards of excellence.

“We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
- Aristotle


As it is so important to us to preserve the beauty and integrity of our landscapes as they mature, we perform a full spectrum of maintenance services. We are able to offer a great attention to detail and many specialized services due to the high level of expertise of our staff. We tailor our services to meet your needs, from weekly maintenance visits, including total care for your lawn and all your plantings, to monthly or occasional service to care for your ornamental plants or flower gardens.

“Art must come from within, and the only source from which the art of landscaping can come is our native landscape.”
- Jens Jensen
