Walkways and foliage spruce up neighborhood
Town home development, Chicago, Illinois
Landscaping by Kinsella Landscape, Blue Island, Illinois

This town home association was overdue for a facelift – concrete, angled walkways and floating plant beds made the space confusing and cluttered. The neighborhood association requested Kinsella Landscape install a functional path and lush landscape. Curved paver walkways now lead to each residential entry, and fast-growing plants including hydrangeas, holly, hosta, astilbe, landy’s mantle and pachysandra groundcover fill planting beds. The existing courtyard received a makeover to provide a more welcoming social area for families. New lighting and irrigation were installed throughout the property.

Drastic grade poses landscaping challenge
Private residence, Antioch, Illinois
Landscaping by AMC Landscapes, Waukegan, Illinois

This was a unique project because of the drastic grade changes on the south side of the property. To maintain the grade and prevent erosion, an 80-foot-long by 7-foot-tall retaining wall made of Anchor Diamond Straight Face blocks was installed. Numerous trees, decorative Holy Boulders and landscape lighting provide a natural ambience. Six pathway lights and 12 accent lights illuminate the flower beds as well as the stone architecture of the house.
