In the same year that Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick was published and California celebrated its official admission as a state, Hinsdale Nurseries sold its first tree. Since opening its doors in 1850, the family-run nursery—now under the helm of a fourth generation of green thumbs—has upheld its dedication to fostering hardy and beautiful gardens in the oft-extreme climes of the Midwest region, thanks to the staff’s exhaustive knowledge of area growing conditions. These plant enthusiasts coax trees, ornamentals, and perennials from 550 acres of earth in Plano before trucking the verdant bounty to their Willowbrook store for purchase. Hinsdale Nurseries also beautifies green spaces via landscaping services ranging from seasonal yard maintenance to pruning backyard labyrinths and shaving their minotaurs.

For the designer Marisa Gora of Kemora Landscape Designs, it's not enough for a garden or yard to be beautiful. It must also be functional, and it has to work with the natural environment it borders. It's no question that she holds her work to a high standard. But it's the way she surpasses even those standards that has earned her company awards from Angie's List, the Flower and Garden Show (which applauded Kemora's work on the American Girl Garden), and the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association.
Her business's mission to give beauty and function equal importance might have something to do with Marisa's background: she was pre-med at the University of Chicago when she decided to switch careers. Her love of drawing and previous work in landscape maintenance for the Wilmette Park District sparked the inspiration that eventually drew her to landscape design. After graduating and working in the industry, she founded Kemora, and today gives life to homeowners' design dreams.
