Established in 1960, Schmechtig Landscapes has taken pride in masterful landscaping employing its old world traditions and perspectives introduced by the founder, Klaus Schmechtig and handed down to his son, Michael. This year, we are excited to welcome Michael’s son and third generation family member Matt Schmechtig.


Our company philosophy treats the landscape of our client’s property as an extension of their home by combining design solutions with experienced horticultural maintenance services. We continue our dedication to care for the finest homes in Chicago, its North Shore and Northwest suburbs, as well as the Lake Geneva area.


Our landscape design planning and property care management approach gives you the gift of time to spend with family and friends. The end-result is a total outdoor living experience that enhances enjoyment in stunning outdoor living spaces.



Our proven approach begins with the sharing of landscape ideas, whether it’s a master landscape design plan, an enhancement intended for changes/additions to an existing landscape or property care management, we begin by asking questions to encourage a creative open environment. By taking direction from you, the architectural style of your home and site, we in turn provide a unique custom outdoor living solution that compliments and reflects your personal lifestyle and preference.



Your landscape is full of life and a continually growing investment reflecting your personality and property. A full-service landscaping company has the knowledge and expertise to manage your home’s outdoor spaces with a staff of designers, horticulturists, plant & tree health care specialists and certified landscape technicians.
