Founded in 1991 by an enterprising high-school freshman, Apex Landscaping dispatches more than 60 personable personnel to groom clients’ lawns and gardens. With today’s deal, choose between seven varieties of annual flowers to decorate your garden this summer—sprinkle gardens with dainty impatiens, light up a field with some fiery marigolds, or plant sharp snapdragon spikes below windowsills to deter pie thieves. A landscape technician will help homeowners decide where to place plants, then an army of installers will dimple gardens with holes to house 108 root systems. Upon request, they can also sprinkle new arrivals with organic fertilizer or sing them chlorophyll-themed lullabies to soothe the transition into their new homes.

As their name implies, Greenwise specializes in 100% eco-friendly landscaping services. Their maintenance packages for residential or commercial lawns use sustainable, renewable alternative products to keep Mother Nature from giving them a stern lecture. Propane- or electric-driven mowers trim grass with low amounts of emissions and their grass seed is fused with beneficial fungi that nourish turf without the need for added chemicals. Additionally, their fertilizers use nutrient-rich compost comprised of molasses and yeast, and weeds and harmful insects are eliminated with nontoxic, all-natural products.

Greenwise’s devotion to lowering carbon footprints extends to their landscaping design as well. They plant organic gardens that blossom with fresh fruits and vegetables to add aesthetic beauty to yards and cut down on trips to the grocer. They are also proponents of working with native flora, which make for a more sustainable garden and attract native birds and butterflies to yards to entertain bored lawn ornaments.

Potential customers can take a look at the outfit's photo gallery to get an idea of its handiwork.

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.

Since the Amling family business first sprouted in 1889, it has expanded, put down roots in four locations, and blossomed with a visual style that makes its work distinctive. Same-day delivery service allows customers to send spur-of-the-moment gifts or apologize for drinking the last of that morning's coffee. The florists deliver their fragrant wares to a sprawling list of residences, funeral homes, hospitals, and other facilities, and can send blooms abroad through international shipping.

Chicagoland's trees have to put up with some seriously rough conditions. Each year, the city's signature wind, snow, and ice do their best to bring down limbs and topple entire specimens—some of which land on cars, rip down power lines, or fall into other compromising positions. Since 1935, Gray Tree Service has been passed on through three generations of the Gardner family to help clients handle these arboreal realities. The licensed and certified arborists perform services ranging from emergency storm cleanup to less critical jobs, such as grinding stumps and removing dead trees. For preventative maintenance, the team can also spray trees for common diseases or prune back limbs before they reach inside windows and start changing television channels.
