Featured Reviews for Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers

Blanford Design
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
October 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!
JW LANDSCAPES LLC
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
January 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.
Exterra Designs, Inc
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
February 20, 2013
We have had Exterra do two projects for our home. First was landscaping the front and side of the house. This involved stone work, plantings and a pergola. We were thrilled with beautiful design and the craftsmanship of installation. The plantings have thrived and after 10 years all the work remains intact. Two years ago, we came back to Pete to have a patio put on the back of the house. This was all brick work and Pete's design was great and worked perfect with what was existing. We had some settling on the patio and Exterra was out immediately to fix it and it is great. We love the work Pete has done with design and the guys doing the install were wonderful. We whole heartedly recommend Exterra designs.

Apex Landscaping, Inc.
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
March 27, 2018
Apex was hired after competitive bids and reference checks to design and install 10 corners and two large planting beds in our Townhouse complex. The Designer and Project Manager was Mike Burkland. Apex collaborated with our Landscape Committee to produce a design that more than satisfied our requirements. Mike stayed on top of every aspect of the implementation, assuring that staff, plants, sod, outcropping stone etc. were first rate. His crew was terrific and he deserves special recognition for his follow thru. If all contractors performed like Mike and Apex, our Association would be a dream to manage.
Yorkville Hill Landscaping Inc.
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
May 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!
The Barn Nursery Landscape Design & Architecture
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
November 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.

Western DuPage Landscaping, Inc.
Chicago, IL Landscape Architects and Designers
March 18, 2014
We had recently added a sunroom and needed some landscaping done in our backyard around the new room. We also decided to put in a patio adjacent to the sunroom. We have a slanted backyard, so we really needed advice on how to accomplish this. In addition, we needed a landscaper to work with us as the contractor finished our deck so everything would flow together. We had an idea of what we wanted, but were really looking for advice and recommendations. We talked to three different landscapers and decided to go with Western DuPage Landscaping. The designer, Nicole, had some great suggestions for our project and worked within the budget we gave her. She patiently explained the difference in pricing between the various pavers available and also recommended plants and shrubs that would grow in our very shaded backyard. Our project came in on budget and in the time frame given. We are very happy with the work done and would not hesitate to return to WDL for future work.
