    natural landscaping in West Chicago – this woodland garden…..filled with spring blooming native species, followed later with fern, hosta, and shrub layers.

    We specialize in natural landscapes, native species and shade gardens. Where possible- we first remove the invasive and unwanted growth, and create a natural landscape using species that offer color, and interest and a a beneficial lift for the local pollinators!

    A natural landscape is in many cases less energy intensive, and aside from some weeding, is maintenance free! Native and colorful bluebells here, plus orn allium, and white violets. For a natural landscape – get in touch soon
