Licensed and Certified in Illinois and in the U.S.

New American Garden: A division of San Filippo Landscape 

Todd Hayden, San Filippo’s owner, is a licensed landscape architect with years of experience in the three primary landscape services including Residential landscaping, Commercial landscaping, and New Construction.

The work of the landscape architect can pretty much be summarized to include everything that is not related to the house or building structure itself.

The landscape architect can even work with the architect or contractor to choose the right spot for your Chicagoland house or business. From there Todd Hayden we will develop preliminary concepts for your landscaping, based on individual needs, the considerable variations in Chicago’s climate and the activities that will be performed in the yard, as well as designs and planting plans.

The landscape architect will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the landscape. Any grading changes that will be added to the landscape are also the responsibility of the landscape architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but a licensed landscape architect is fully capable.

Like building architects, landscape architects will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.
