Parkway Possibilities

This is an urban parkway in a residential neighborhood in Chicago. The plantings are native, except the Clematis and the tulips.

There are several boulders that make great seats on a hot summer evening.

Weeding a couple times a year is all this type of landscape needs, as long as the Norway Maples are trimmed to allow some sun to filter in. This parkway is south facing, so it gets some sun.

Neighbors, Community, and Green Infrastructure Solutions

Please check out this video of the Let’s Go Chicago team laying some drainpipe at one of our projects.  We had a big rain last week and were absolutely thrilled to receive an email from our client indicating there was no more seepage through her basement wall!
