Landscape Design

Our Design Philosophy

The Growing Place designs new, renovates old or works within existing landscapes to create a balanced whole. Our Design Team is deeply rooted in The Growing Place tradition of planting the right plant in the right place to reduce maintenance and contribute to a successful, long-lasting landscape. We use a diverse selection of plants to satisfy every garden style and cultural need. To schedule an appointment contact us at 630-820-8088 x125 or e-mail


Landscape Design & Installation Services

Our Design Team works with you to create a landscape that is specific to your site. We work with areas of all shapes and sizes using existing plants whenever possible. We can create new designs or update existing landscapes. We will work with you from start to completion to ensure your landscape matches your vision. A scaled drawing and/or a site consultation is a must for anyone who uses our installation service and for projects that require more detail. Project fees start at $250. You will receive:

• Personal consultation to discuss the scope of your project, your goals and your personal style.

• Documenting, measuring and photographing the site.

• Detailed scaled CAD drawings, with plant pictures and care information.

• Project presentation at The Growing Place including touring the plants suggested.

• Complete installation estimate for the project.

• A coupon towards a one-time plant purchase.


For smaller projects and do-it-yourself enthusiasts, our Landscape Coaching appointments might be the right fit for you.
