Garden Concepts is a Chicago-area based landscape design and installation firm specializing in high-quality, custom residential work. We are large enough to handle the most complicated of projects, but small enough to provide the personal attention our clients deserve.

Our Chicago suburban location is ideal for projects in the area, but don't let it be a limiting factor. We have worked on a number of out-of-state projects, including vacation homes.

Investing in your landscape is one of the more important decisions you will make concerning your home, and it is important that you do it right. We hope this web site will help you decide to trust us to help you get it done.


Our Mission

Through our team, and in partnership with our clients, we create attractive, functional spaces that respect the site, the client and the environment.

Our Vision

Be recognized, within and outside the profession, as an innovative leader in the design and installation of high quality, custom residential landscape.
