Sustainable & Beautiful Landscape Designs in Chicagoland

At Greenwise, we believe good design means sustainable design. We focus on functionality, as well as beauty, to create a landscape that is sustainable and designed to give you joy for many years. If you can dream it, Greenwise can build it!

Our talented landscape design team works closely with you to design sustainable, beautiful landscapes that look and feel good—environmentally responsible, aesthetically stunning, and completely customized to fit your lifestyle.

Give us a call at 847-866-1930 or contact us online to learn more about our Chicago area landscape design!

Creating a Partnership & Lightening Our Footprint

We begin our partnership with a personal consultation, continue with a custom design, and bring it to life with the installation.

Before creating a design, we also address the function of the yard by taking into account factors, such as drainage and grading. By taking this holistic approach of “form follows function,” we continue the traditions of the great Chicago architect, Louis Sullivan.

As with everything we do, all of our landscapes are done with the environment in mind. We lighten our footprint by sourcing our materials locally, using native plants whenever we can, using equipment strategically when it increases efficiency, and following responsible construction practices.

Immaculate Landscape Designs, Both Big & Small

Our landscape designs come in all sizes, from installing a series of outdoor rooms for historic homes to creating a Zen garden. We have installed pool decks with permeable pavers and specialized tiles, raised garden beds, walkways, driveways and patios, seasonal displays, outdoor kitchens, butterfly and native gardens, and solutions for storm water runoff and drainage issues.

Our team of landscape designers is experienced, thoughtful, creative, and passionate about helping you create an outdoor space that is sustainable and brings you joy.

Call us today at 847-866-1930 or request a consultation online to start your landscape design project in Chicagoland!
