I am a homeowner. We live about an hour and a half south of Chicago. We have a unique shaped and very large back yard, we have almost .3 acres and our property backs up to 6 different neighbors. Looking for creative privacy options. You have great work, too bad you are no longer in my area!

cool... I grew up in St. Charles and would love to do work in the chicago area as well as the west coast. Technoligy is great as I have done plans for homes in California remotely as well as Whistler BC. I don't mean to solicit work but if you want to send some photos and have a surveyor do the base map I can certainly do a plan for you. You can have a contractor like Marianni or Hinsdale Nursery install it:)

Hicks Yew hedge do well in Chicago area. Another suggestion is to considered a mixed border instead of a hedge......hemlock or spruce or pine - serbian spruce stays narrow mixed with flowering trees and shrubs such as fragrant viburnum etc?

I used to work for Marriani Landscape out of lake bluff. If you call them ask for Carrie Meade or John Marianni. They are good office/design build or you can call Scott Byron or Doug Hoerr and Hoerr Schaudt all very good but all very expensive!

Consider how to provide seating for more people. Maybe two smaller tables that can be joined? Or maybe a portable table addition like we do in dining room.
