Yes. We serve the greater Chicagoland area.
We locally source our plant material to ensure that it is grown in our local soil types and is hearty to our climate.
Most of our landscape projects take between 1-3 weeks to install. We have all the materials on hand to maximize efficiencies and once we start your project we stay on the job with the same crews until the job is complete.
We charge a design retainer for projects that require sufficient design time. The retainer is applied to the project cost at time of installation.
Any time during mild weather is the right time to plant trees and shrubs. Locally sourced plant material is climate hearty and will thrive in its new location.
The general rule of thumb is one inch of water per week. We strongly recommend a deep watering routine that delivers the same amount of water each week but at less frequent intervals. Water longer each time but less frequent. This technique promotes a deeper root structure with a heartier healthier lawn.
For lawns that do not have regular watering from an automatic irrigation system we recommend 2 – 3 fertilizations per year. For lawns with automatic irrigation systems we recommend 3-4 fertilizations per year.
Generally you should only need to re-mulch beds every 2-3 years. Proper mulching adds valuable nutrients to the soil. Mulch needs a season or two to break down into a soil amendment. Your beds should not have more than 3 inches of mulch coverage.
