About this pro

We are a landscape design build firm that grows native trees and shrubs in our four growing fields. We have over three thousand trees and ornamentals, evergreen trees to chose from that are used in our designed gardens. Customers may personally select trees from our fields. We also grow unique plants that will fit into a northern Illinois garden. We start from the ground up and use perennials, flowering shrubs, ornamentals and shade trees into gardens. Also fully maintain gardens. No weekly maintenance is done by us. I’m a Landscape Architect and have been blessed by working in this business for forty years. I really enjoy what I do for people.
