Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
The Barn Nursery Landscape Design & Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
"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."

Seasonal Landscape Solutions
Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
"Seasonal installed a stone path and stone patio featuring a grill island, arbor, pond, seating wall, landscape lighting and custom wood steps and benchs. We couldn't be happier overall. Especially with the owner of the company Andy Wiltberger. He is super repsonsive whether I texted, emailed or called. Andy helped us choose materials and design the project with our input. He came onsite several times to make sure things were being completed properly. His crews are experienced, professional and hard working. Seasonal pulled all the needed permits and provided me proof of insurance and workman's comp before they started. Andy also did a good job keeping the cost close to budget and provided well written proposals we reviewed and discussed before any work started. Thank you Andy and team for making our dream outdoor living space a reality. We love it and look forward to sharing it with friends and family for many years to come."

Bob's Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
"We first contacted Bob's landscaping a year ago when we were looking for design ideas for a specific landscaping project. Bob visited the property, listened to our needs and concerns (needed a deer resistant plan) and then created a beautiful design. The cost of his product and service was extremely fair and of high quality. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. Since then we have engaged Bob and his company for other projects and have had a similarly positive experience every time. This is a company you can trust. First class!"

ILT Vignocchi
Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
"We have used ILT for a variety of projects: planting areas, patio, front walk way, annual flowers, weekly lawn maintenance and irrigation system work. They are awesome. the plant designs and the patio design work beautifully together. My back yard feels like a resort The arrangements in the planters for summer are amazing - everyone loves them. I am very particular with my lawn. We went through a lawn service about once a season for a variety of reasons. I typically ended up doing it myself between services to get it done "right". ILT is the first lawn service we have had and kept! The are very careful and do a great job. The lawn isn't too short in summer and they don't leave the large clumps of clippings others have left. All-in-all, we are extremely happy with them and will use them for landscape design and installation on the new home we are building."

EverGreen Landscape Associates LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
"We used EverGreen for landscaping and patio installation. We quoted the project with 3 local contractors, and although the 3 quotes were not apples-to-apples, Evergreen offered the best price and more importantly, the best options that most closely matched the size and scope of our quote request. Becca had unique ideas for our cookie-cutter space. The project started and completed on time, and despite the heavy equipment and materials used for the projected, the disruption from the actual construction was minimal. The crew was professional and courteous."

Marilyn's Dreamscapes L.L.C.
Landscape Architects and Designers in North Barrington, IL
"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!"

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 North Barrington, IL house. From there the North Barrington 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 North Barrington 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 North Barrington, 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.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in North Barrington, IL:

  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
