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.

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.

Rooftopia, LLC
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 30, 2013
Rooftopia has been exceptional to work with. We live in an apt. duplex with limited space available for them to work with but they were able to create a beautiful landscape. Although we were on a tight budget, they were able to offer us so many options. Everything was completely professional. The proposal was clear and included photo images so we could visualize the layout and end product. They were in constant communication during the entire process too. They are the best in Chicago and so grateful we found them!
Yorkville Hill Landscaping Inc.
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 19, 2015
We had our apron to the driveway and the front sidewalk and entrance done with pavers. We were happy to hear that polymeric sand was used so that weeds would not grow between the pavers. The grading of the sidewalk was excellent and there was no need to even have a step due to this. We loved the artistic look of the sidewalk. The entrance from the driveway is wider and gives it a more elegant look. The sidewalk has the pavers turned along the two edges for the border appearance. The finished project far exceeded our expectations. We plan to use Yorkville Hill for our patio and landscaping! We loved how Kyle contacted us whenever we had changes or questions and how he supervised his crew!

Blanford Design
Landscape Architects & Designers in Chicago
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 7, 2012
Wow, is all I can say about Gary's work and flair for landscape and outdoor living area design. I have worked with a number of landscape designa nd installation firms in the past, but none of them has come even close to the caliber of work and design that Gary at Blanford Design is capable of. Not even close. The sheer difference in architectural design quality sets Gary far apart from the rest of the pack. If you require elegant and well thought out design and installation services, give Gary a call - no doubt you will be as amazed as I am!
