Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago

McAdam Landscaping
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 11, 2016
I'm a resident in a 12 townhome "U"-shaped community with a courtyard and two "wing yards" stretching along the public sidewalk. Our landscaping at the beginning of the year (2016) consisted of 15 full grown trees, some shrubs, and struggling ground cover with a great deal of bare areas. The 30-foot trees dominated the landscape, inhibiting plant variety for lack of sunlight. Additionally, when it rained we experienced soil erosion spreading mud over the public sidewalk and courtyard walkway when it rained. This spring we (the townhome owners) decided to contact McAdam Landscaping for a remedy. Our contact person was Scott McAdam who presented us an elegant design. It called for the removal of all but two of the trees, arranging to have Davis Tree Care to handle that aspect (which they did very professionally), and the substitution of six ornamental trees and a wonderful variety of shrubs, conifers, perennials and ground cover laid out in a flowing, very aesthically-pleasing arrangement. The graphic plan placed little demand on us to envision what it would look like in the end. Scott worked with us to make a few minor adjustments that reduced the cost appreciably without departing from the overall design, displaying patience as we worked through the cumbersome internal process of deliberation, approval and payment collection. The plan was approved by the owners of all 12 townhomes at the very end of August and the job was completed in September. We are quite pleased with the final product. The mud erosion problem has been arrested. A neighbor who is an experienced gardner herself shared this: ""Scott's thoughtful design and vision has brought new energy and fluidity to our community courtyard. The use of native plants addresses our need for a low maintenance, high impact green space pleasing to the eye, and increasing our property value & appearance." Another neighbor added: "I also really appreciate his [Scott McAdam's] attention to color in all seasons. I loved how the bushes and trees turned this fall, and look forward to seeing the colors in the other seasons as well." The frog of a landscape we began the year with has been kissed. It's now a prince.

The Hursthouse team patiently spent many hours developing a detailed and extensive renovation plan for our entire property. Major features of the plan included: --installing a brick paver driveway bordered by a snapcut limestone retaining wall --installing bluestone front entry walk and porch --rebuilding backyard bluestone patio and new courtyard area with water fountain and cast iron fence border --extensive landscape lighting both front and back --installing imported planter urns on pedestals --extensive tree & shrub planting, perennials & ground cover. The design added great value and enhanced our enjoyment of our property in ways we never anticipated. The entire Hursthouse team took great pride in their work and went to great lengths to make us very satisfied clients.

Pete Wodarz does all my landscaping designs around the country -- I would not work with anyone else..... I think that says it all.
Heffernan Landscape Design
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 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.
JW LANDSCAPES LLC
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 28, 2015
Over the years, I have had the pleasure to design and install Landscape Illumination systems on a number of projects that John West has designed and installed. As the owner of Night Light, Inc, I have had the opportunity to work at some of the nicest properties throughout Chicago. I am truly impressed with the landscapes designed by John. John does not follow a common road in his approach to properties. He understands his client's thoroughly and develops the entire property to be unique and very special. Calming and a pleasure to enjoy, is how I read his customer's reactions. Never have I seen a boring detail in his work, but instead a refreshing approach to creating excitement in garden spaces. We have worked on smaller city spaces and country estates, where he has transformed them into meaningful islands of paradise. I give John my highest praises for jobs well done.
Poul's Landscaping & Nursery, Inc.
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 17, 2016
I highly recommend this company! Poul's has done all of our landscaping design and installation since our house was built. We have used their services several times during our phased-in landscaping approach. Their very talented landscape architects' designs are beautiful and they take the time to meet with you to determine the best plan for your specific area, tastes, lifestyle and budget. I really like the fact that they have their own nursery and you can walk their property with a professional to pick out just the right tree or shrub if you want. The trees they planted for us several years ago were amazing and continue to thrive providing us with beautiful shade in just the right spot. Most recently, we've cleared out a brush line and Poul's designed and installed new flowering bushes and perennials which have completely changed the look of our back yard.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 14, 2014
Marilyn could not be more courteous, patient and knowledgeable about her profession. She has an excellent eye for design of both landscapes and hardscapes and we could not be more thrilled with the end product of her work. She is very hands on, will work to keep costs down, and always has a smile on her face. You won't be dissappointed with the result if you work with Marilyn. Guaranteed!
Calafia Design

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 13, 2014
We have had the priviledge to perform the landscape masonry work on more than 10 projects that Katy has designed. She is thoughtful and creative with her projects. I have always been impressed that she is able to create functional, yet really beautiful outdoor spaces that work really great for families. She is a great communicater and her projects are always fun for our team to take on. I would highly recommend anyway considering hiring Katy to be their landscape designer.
