Christy Webber Landscapes worked on the install and construction for the Art Institute of Chicago’s beautiful Modern Wing. The goal was to create a natural flow from the north to the south, while working within weight restrictions due to the vaulted subsurface. Great effort was taken through the process to protect and preserve the maples along the edge of the project boundary, which provide greenery and shade. In addition, this project featured some of our very first engineered, vermiculture soil.
Winter is here, Chicago, and it's time to make sure your landscapes are ready for the cold season ahead. A few tips from our experts: be sure to wrap your arborvitaes to protect them from the wind and snow; make sure your leaves are picked up to avoid potential icy hazards; shut down and put away fountains and/or fountain pumps and clean out and prepare your bird feeders for winter visitors.
