Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Libertyville, IL
Blanford Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Libertyville, IL
"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!"

Apex Landscaping, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Libertyville, IL
"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."

What does a landscape architect do?


The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Libertyville, IL house. From there the Libertyville landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed Illinois landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?


A Libertyville landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Libertyville, IL will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire an Illinois professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.
