Our work is based on the fundamental belief that nature is an essential sanctuary for humans.


We are a landscape design, installation, and maintenance firm that wants to redesign outdoor spaces from Chicago to Michigan, one rooftop and yard at a time.

In order to accomplish this audacious vision we have a highly talented, flexible, creative, and nimble team of quick-witted professionals who excel at a wide variety of disciplines including state of the art design, exterior space planning, horticultural services, seasonal plantings and displays, landscape installation, and fine carpentry for outdoor spaces.

Breaking the mold

We thrive on new ideas, breaking the mold, and pushing limits while at the same time relying on lessons learned, the experience of others, and all the great ideas we didn’t think of ourselves.


We are organized to create, build + install, maintain, source, and manage. We are constantly looking for ways to improve by increasing skill level, finding new tools, and hiring exceptional people.

We are driven by curiosity and competitiveness to produce a product that surpasses our client’s expectations and our ever-increasing high standards.
