Rooftops

Design and installation of living spaces on rooftops & balconies.

Outdoor living in Chicago often requires vertical space, making rooftops a significant opportunity to create an “environment [that] produces health, beauty, joy, and comfort” (Rudolph Schindler). With years of experience, Topiarius has become experts in the design and installation of outdoor living spaces on rooftops and balconies in an urban environment.

Our passion is to blend form with function, comfort with aesthetic, inspiration and practicality, and innovation with quality. Our experienced designers, trained horticulturalists, and in-house construction crew possess the skills and knowledge needed to create stunning rooftops and balconies of all sizes and styles.

Gardens

Design and installation of landscapes.

At Topiarius, we understand that your garden is an extension of your home—a place that gives comfort, and reflects your personality. But we also understand the practical side of things, and a flooding back yard or a dying tree needs to be addressed. We use industry-leading best practices to address such foundational issues from an environmentally-conscious perspective.

Seasonal Rotations

Plant and Sculptural Interest for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

In Chicagoland, each season comes with its own special character and challenges. Topiarius celebrates each one with plants and designs unique to that season. All of our seasonal offerings are professionally designed and installed, and available to home owners and commercial properties alike. Whether your preference is traditional and formal or clean and modern, we will create the perfect design using the best plants and accents.

During the winter season, Topiarius offers both interior and exterior design and decorating services. Inside, we’ll set up your Christmas tree, hang your stockings, garlands, wreaths, and bows, along with creating custom pieces. Outside, we’ll install displays in containers and landscape beds, string lights on trees and shrubs, hang garland and wreaths with custom bows, and anything else we can dream.

Interior Floral

Regular rotations of plants and fresh-cut flowers.

Our floral service tends to your interior fresh cut floral and interior plant needs. We offer services for recurring rotations and one-time needs. We can also add more plants to an existing design, freshen up a layout and even source the perfect plant container.

 

Orchid rotations area a great solution for anyone interested in a 4-6 week rotation option. From bud to full bloom there is consistent interest. Also, they require minimal care making them perfect for anyone with a busy life-style.

 

Plant rotations are very similar to orchid rotations, but focus on foliage colors and textures. Depending on the specific plant, its location, and the care provided, rotations can last much longer than orchids.

Fresh-Cut rotations provide an endless array of styles, colors, textures, and sizes. Typically rotations need to occur weekly to maintain their freshness.

Mixture rotations combine all or some of our options into one display. These rotations are best for a 3-6 week rotation schedule.

Accents

Creating a unique display can often include accent pieces, such as a piece of drift wood or grapevine. A birdhouse may even make an appearance. Providing unexpected details allows us to utilize our creative ideas so that you have a statement piece.

Containers

When we are providing rotations, we prefer to have at lease two vases so we can pick up and drop off the floral displays with ease. We are happy to provide as many different styles as requested. If you’re looking for a plant container for that perfect spot, we can recommend and source some options.

Contracts

Monthly contracts with varied payment options are available with a minimum of 4 rotations. One-time orders are also available with a 50% deposit and balance due upon invoicing.
