What we do
We design and build functional gardens and spaces for the rustic city-dweller, specializing in edible landscaping and small-scale urban farming. We fabricate custom hardscape, structures, furniture, and irrigation systems to suit our clients' unique style, needs and budget.
Not your typical landscape designer.
We prefer to call ourselves "homestead designers" for these reasons:
- "Pretty" is not enough. We believe that landscape ought to be functional, sustainable, and environmentally friendly, too.
- We are innovative. R&D is a major part of our design process, so we are always imagining creative new design solutions. Whether we are utilizing salvaged or non-traditional materials to build your chicken coop, or incorporating Arduino-powered technology to your automate your drip irrigation system, we think and operate outside the box.
- We love DIYers. We get it. Sometimes all you need is a little help to get started. We offer design-only and consulting services for those who want to install themselves, or are looking for assistance with existing projects.
- We live the lifestyle. We understand the joys and challenges of homesteading in Chicago because we live it everyday. We are active in our communities and are always learning more. Education is a huge part of what we do, and we are always happy to share what we know. Please check out our blog to see what we're up to!
