Garden One

Building on the Past

The new Flossmoor homeowners of this midcentury modern house have been busy building on what the two previous owners had done. They immediately started to improve on the existing pagoda, Zen garden and winding path by adding trees, shrubs and hundreds of perennials.

Garden Two

A Beautiful Sanctuary

This 5-year old, East Hazel Crest, three quarter acre property was a clean slate for these artistic gardeners.  They have created garden rooms for reading, tea and just sitting still taking in the beauty and sweet fragrances.

Garden Three

Stately and Elegant

From Challenge to Charm 


This half-acre lot in Olympia Fields had its challenges, extensive shade and course clay soil. But these two homeowners took on that challenge with a bit of help from professional garden designers and added color and texture to those tough areas much to the joy of the whole neighborhood.
