No Water Waste
of our clients say about us...
“I was struggling to keep up with my landscaping projects. I knew what I wanted in landscaping but I could never achieve any of my goals. I called up this company and they not only worked with me on my ideas they advised me on what would work for me and what wouldn’t. It would be an understatement to say that I have no regrets working with their team and following their lead. My favorite thing is to wake up in the morning and have my cup of coffee on my deck with artificial turf featuring a live archway into my garden.”
“Deciding to hire Chicago Landscaping Services is one of the best decisions I made right up there with swapping city life to live in a tiny house. They created a layered landscaping model for me using tall trees at the end of my property as well shrubs, groundcovers and ferns to define the yard around the house. I feel at home every time I look outside.”
Robert Young Jr.
"I have been landscaping my yard for over 15 years but an injury left me incapacitated and I could see my work over the years going down the drain as I could tend to my plants. When I reached out to Chicago Landscaping Services their response was not only prompt but also very friendly. Within three days I had spoke to the field tem supervisor and the work had started. They followed my ideas and even bettered them leaving my yard looking impeccable. I will not be returning to landscaping my space. I would rather get these guys to do the job because they have exceeded my expectations beyond my wildest dreams.”
Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Water Does My Yard Need Each Week?
A good Chicago landscaping business or company will recommend 1 to 1.5 inches of water each week. Now, before you go out and start watering your lawn more, pay attention to the weather as well. If it’s raining, pay attention to how much rainfall there is because you might not even have to water your yard that week. It’s also not a cut and dry question. Pay attention to your plants and yard. Does it look vibrant and lush? If it doesn’t then maybe you should water a little bit more. In most cases, your yard will tell you what it needs if you pay attention.
How Much Does It Cost For A Water Feature?
A good Chicago landscaping company should be able to install water features on a customers property for their landscaping project. This is a difficult question to answer as a water feature could be as simple as picking one up from Home Depot, filling it with water, and plugging it in or it could require a ton of landscaping design especially if it’s located in the front yard. It’s a smart idea to ask some landscaping contractors for pricing and a quote on these services. The prices would vary greatly as well. If you are indeed interested in water features or any other hardscaping, please don’t hesitate to give us a call and ask for a free quote.
What Is The importance Of Using Good Mulch?
The whole point of using mulch is to keep the moisture in the soil that the plants are grown in. When water is evaporating at a large rate from the soil then the root structure suffers. Mulch also greatly reduces the amount of time you need to water your yard and it also breaks up clay while increasing air movement in the soil. The difference between good mulch and bad mulch is the amout of nutrients in the mulch. Ideally, a good mulch would be put out in your yard periodically that would replace the depleted nutrients in the soil.
Do You Give Free Estimates?
Yes, we absolutely give free estimates or a free estimate on almost every landscaping or hardscaping job you require. Sure, there might be sometimes when a landscaping contractor can just quote over the phone but in general, a landscaping technician would have to come out and assess the situation. Lighting systems and snow removal quotes are difficult to provide over the phone so we would definitely have to to see the area for those but things like weed control or lawn care can be estimated over the phone. Either way, the estimates are completely free!

Do I Need An Irrigation System?
This question really depends on a number of factors. Are you watering your lawn on your own? If you aren’t, then your yard definitely could use an irrigation system installed soon. The plants almost always will benefit from more water even in a rainy season. With this being said, it’s also important to pay attention to your yard and observe what you think it needs. Does it look lush and rich? If it doesn’t then maybe some extra water or an irrigation system should be installed.
Do You Guarantee The Plants Live For A Certain Period Of Time?
In order to answer this question, it would be necessary to access what the customer needs. Do you need a whole new yard full of trees or just one bush? Do you have an irrigation system or do you water the yard yourself? Are you committed to giving your trees or shrubs water? We would have to ask these questions and more to find out if the service we provide for you would be 100% guaranteed or not.
What is Hardscaping?
Although most people think of landscaping companies as doing landscape maintenance on residential properties, Hardscaping is also offered by many businesses. Hardscaping is typically thought of as any landscaping service outside of general lawn maintenance. Hardscaping would be the construction of pergolas, outdoor kitchens, some ground cover, and Lighting systems. Hardscaping generally means the types of services that require us to come out and give you a quote in person.
