Featured Reviews for Chicago Landscape Contractors

McAdam Landscaping
Chicago Landscape Contractors
Nov 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.”
Forest Landscaping
Chicago Landscape Contractors
Jan 11, 2017
“My wife and I had built a house and asked Brian from Forest Landscaping for an estimate to sod our front and down the sides to the rear of the house, brick boarder around the house with 18in of stone between the house and boarder, seed and blanket the backyard, plant a bradford pear tree that he grew on his property, and plant 6 other bushes and plants. He listened to what we wanted made suggestions and made a rendition of what the project would look like finished with the house. The price for what we asked was very reasonable and we accepted. We scheduled a day to have the work completed. I left for work at 6 a.m. and arrived home at 4 p.m. the work was 100% completed and cleaned up. Very professional and very personable group of employees! We will use Forest Landscaping in the future to build us a retaining wall in our backyard. We look forward to working with them again!”
Whispering Hills Garden & Landscape Center
Chicago Landscape Contractors
Oct 27, 2014
“From the moment we met with the owner, Al Anderson, we knew we had chosen the correct company for the job. Al was extremely attentive and listened to our needs/goals for our outdoor living space. Whispering Hills provided us an estimate within a week of our initial visit. They even handled obtaining permits, and etc. for the job in a timely manner. Al and his crew worked on the space for about 2 days. My husband and I are extremely happy with the outstanding results that were delivered! We look forward to working with Whispering Hills again in the future on our landscaping projects. Thank you Al & Michelle!”
Hursthouse Landscape Architects and Contractors
Chicago Landscape Contractors
Nov 2, 2012
“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.”

Blade Runners Services LLC
Chicago Landscape Contractors
Jun 15, 2015
“In 2014 my wife and I searched out a new landscape contractor for deck demolition, paver patio construction and backyard landscape design / implementation. Our former experience for front yard landscape design (a larger, local landscape company) was a complete disaster of missed deadlines and project manager ineptitude, all at the cost of a way overpriced project. I found Garret Metzger (Bladerunners Services LLC) online and took a second chance for our backyard and have never looked back. Garrett takes the time to plan things accordingly, and doesn't hesitate to take on last minute customer changes. He works within budget, discusses possible issues to reduce future sticker shock, and routinely inspects the work throughout its various phases to make sure things are completed properly. He works with UniLock pavers and maintains a good relationship with both his supplier as well as those performing the work. Our experience has resulted in on-time work completion, very reasonable and rational pricing, and a next-door neighbor who now enjoys sitting and viewing our patio from their yard possibly more than we do sitting on ours. I now routinely refer Garrett to my professional clients.”
