What We Do

Garden Concepts specializes in custom landscapes for discriminating residential clients. Based in Glenview, IL, our projects include some of the finest homes in the Chicago area, although we have ongoing projects in Michigan, Wisconsin and Maryland.

Because of the high emphasis on design, our clients' needs are attended to like no other firm. Our design staff is involved with the process from initial client contact through the ultimate installation of the project.

"Some people look at the house as a place to keep their stuff. Others look at it as a home. Our clients tend to be from the latter group."

Tim Thoelecke

The Design Process begins with the initial consultation. This

is where we get acquainted and begin exchanging information. We will be able to discuss design ideas, potential costs and design fees and generally get to know each other. Landscape improvements are a substantial investment, both financially and emotionally, so it is important that we are comfortable with each other.

Although planting is a major part of the landscape, our best work also includes hardscape items such as paving, landscape lighting, custom woodwork, irrigation, water features, and more. Under our direction, our network of very capable craftsmen can execute the plans.
