This urban backyard oasis features 3’ by 3’ bluestone flagstone with blue-chip joints that seamlessly set the stage for backyard entertaining. In order to achieve greenery all year long, we planted Boxwood, Rhododendron, Arborvitae and Pachysandra. And, in the hopes of creating privacy in a bustling Chicago neighborhood, we installed a wood privacy fence, Japanese Maples, a Birch and a Spruce tree.
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.
