About Greenwise

Greenwise is the leading organic lawn and landscaping company in the greater Chicago area. We restore yards and landscapes with services that prioritize the health of our families, our pets, and our natural environment. Do you want to get rid of toxic chemicals and pesticides? So do we. We believe in creating safe, sustainable lawns. That's why we only use organic and natural methods that have a positive impact downstream.

We lead by example. By offering sustainable landscaping, we create a demand for it. As we continue to grow, we are forging a greener path for others to follow in our footsteps. Do you believe in having lawns that are 100% safe for our children and pets? If so, please follow us. Call us at 847.866.1930 and see how we can help you lighten your footprint.

Community Projects

Greenwise Pesticide-Free Parks Program

We've been growing with the Evanston community since we opened our doors in 2007. It's our mission to educate and inspire people to make choices that are good for their own health, the health of the environment we share, and the health of future generations.

Take a look at some of our proudest work:

Our Commitment to Excellence

We are not a landscaping company. We are a customer service company committed to creating a brighter future through sustainable landscaping. Taking care of you is our highest priority, and we stand behind everything we do with our Commitment to Excellence: if you are not happy for any reasons, we are not happy. Period.

Partnering to Keep Your Pets Healthy and Safe

yards safe for pets

You love your pets and so do we. That’s why Greenwise and Follow Your Nose are partnering to keep your pets healthy and safe.

If you haven’t visited Follow Your Nose, it’s worth a stop. It is a local Evanston full service pet store that has been a part of our community for the past 16 years. Ramie, the owner, is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about our pets. Her services range from organic pet food and products, grooming, vacation care, puppy training, to picking up animal waste. Like we said, full service.

As you know, we want all of our yards to be safe for our pets and families, and our organic lawn treatments are 100% safe. We even have a "green" way to control mosquitoes, fleas and ticks in your lawn and gardens. Not only does it kill these insects, it smells fantastic. And, it’s safe for our pollinators, pets and families.

Together, Greenwise and Follow Your Nose have got you covered when it comes to protecting your pets.
