In 2002, Christy Webber Landscapes installed what is essentially a massive green roof spanning across Millennium Park, including an active traffic rail. Since then, we have continued to provide full ground maintenance including snow removal along with annual installation of winter decorations, which add to the festive appearance by the ice rink. This park has an enormous number of visitors year round, so the walkways must remain clean and clear. The park must continue to stay attractive, as it is the backdrop for all the events that occur in this space year round, and the icon of the City of Chicago.
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.
