Featured Reviews for Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers

Chalet
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Jun 29, 2012
“Chalet is a fantastic company, they do phenomenal work. I highly recommend them whether you are simply buying plants to plant yourself or using their landscaping services to create something very personal and beautiful.”
Burkhart Outdoors, Inc.
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Jan 21, 2019
“My husband and I hired Kyle to design and install a patio and fire pit with surrounding plants in our back yard. With an eye for detail and a unique creative ability, Kyle came up with a perfect design for us which complemented our house and deck. Kyle’s clear communication made the project flow seamlessly. We received an initial email detailing each step of the project. Each day he was on job site to monitor the progress and convey any additional information or changes as well as answer any of our questions. The crew was on time daily, worked tirelessly, answered our questions, and cleaned up the yard at the end of each day. The project was within our budget, completed on time and we absolutely love it.”
Bruss Landscaping, Inc.
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Mar 5, 2013
“We hired Bruss Landscaping after we bought our home as the landscaping needed a complete overhaul. We met with Tillie and what a breath of fresh air. She was the only landscaper that we met with who asked what we had in mind and what our budget was. She then took those ideas and worked within our budget as well as came back with some great ideas of her own. The project went flawlessly and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Our landscaping in the front and back looks fantastic and really adds value to our home. We will definitely use them again for our next project.”
CB Conlin Landscapes Inc.
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Aug 28, 2013
“It is always a great pleasure working with CB Conlin. They are truly a top-notch company! We always look forward to being on site with them. From talented designers to highly skilled employees their projects are always one of a kind.”
Hoy Landscaping Inc.
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
May 14, 2016
“We have worked with Aaron on 2 projects. He has given us great recommendations and fit our desires to our budget. Aaron was always quick to return phone calls and messages. We are extremely happy with our new patio and backyard!”
Nathan Wright Landscape Design
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Jan 28, 2016
“Nathan came to our home for an estimate and design ideas for a back yard makeover and patio. Our yard was messy and needed clean up and we really wanted a patio. Nathan provided detailed designs of his ideas and concepts and made some great suggestions. He called and scheduled within a week as promised. He moved quickly with a hardworking crew and did a complete makeover. Two years later the patio drains nicely and looks fantastic. We highly recommend Nathan Wright Landscape. Thanks, Will & Eiko.”
Anne Roberts Gardens, Inc.
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Mar 20, 2013
“Anne & her team designed and installed front-yard landscaping for us, including adding a stone walkway. The shrubs & trees in our yard were overgrown and the house looked dated. The other landscapers we considered offered plans that followed the shape & design ideas of the existing landscaping. They essentially proposed pulling the old shrubs and replacing them with new ones of the same or a similar type. And the plants suggested we ones that are widely available at Lowes or Home Depot. In contrast, Anne pointed out specific reasons that the landscaping looked dated and uninviting, and proposed ways to fix it. She used primarily native plants, but many I'd never seen, so the plantings stand out among our neighbors. The plants are colorful year-round and low-maintence. She was able to locate a specific type of tree we'd requested (one we'd had & loved at our last house); the other two landscapers told us that they could not find any specimens. On top of all that, Anne's pricing was ultimately comparable to the other proposals we received. We receive compliments all the time & cannot recommend Anne highly enough.”
Heffernan Landscape Design
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Oct 10, 2012
“Heffernan Landscape Design designed and installed a garden and patio after gut-rehab and addition built to my home. The architecture of my home, my needs, wish list and my abilitiy as a gardner were taken into account when the garden was designed. A large patio with seating, greenspace, herb garden, and shade trees was installed. Excellent work with beautiful results. Courteous crew left the area spotless.”
O'Brien Landscape
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Aug 4, 2016
“After receiving bids from three landscaping companies for what was for us a rather large job, we chose O'Brien. Their bid was competitive, but more importantly they were the only company that took the time to sort of re-imagine the space and make creative suggestions. I have never been more satisfied with a home improvement job. They were on-time and performed high quality work. They allowed for small modifications without fuss as the project progressed. They followed through with small details until we were 100% satisfied. I was so blown away I recommend them to anyone that will listen!”
The Barn Nursery Landscape Design & Architecture
Chicago Landscape Architects and Designers
Nov 15, 2013
“From our first meeting with Tom Kusmerz, The Barn Nursery, we were sold on working with that company and looked no further. Through conversation and walking around on our property, Tom was able to create a hardscape design concept that we just loved. Our retaining wall was failing and we needed to redesign the whole thing. With his help we chose natural stone that blended well with our existing house brick and pool decking and gave us both the color and natural look we were after. Tom worked with our pool and concrete contractors so everything on our project was done in the right order and no one had to wait on someone else. With Tom's design on our retaining wall and how the base materials were installed, we were able to reduce the costs of our concrete decking repair by half of the original bid and we have a beautiful, natural looking retaining wall that will last forever. The crews working on our project from The Barn Nursery were great. I looked forward to their arrival every morning. They were neat, efficient, friendly and very hard working. I could tell that they really took pride in their workmanship and the job came out beautifully. My family and I look forward to their return in the spring to help us with our plantings. It was a truly great experience working with this company and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.”
