Our Other Landscaping Services

Irrigation

Proper watering is essential to keep gardens and lawns flourishing and irrigation systems are an essential component for each Schmechtig client. Designed to water your lawn and gardens independently, our irrigation techs maintain and service your system to efficiently water your plant beds, gardens and lawn. Our staff works with your irrigation system and creates flexibility to accommodate your ever-changing landscape.

Landscape Lighting

While irrigation is an essential component for our clients, we make lighting an integral part of the outdoor environment with our lighting professionals. Your landscape will take on special beauty at night when properly illuminated. From focal points to entertainment areas to traffic zones, our experts know how lighting will enrich, enhance and shape the exterior spaces at night. Landscape lighting also provides safe passage along walks and paths, deters potential intruders and extends your outdoor living environment. Indoor technologies are environmental. Low-voltage LED options provide a greener alternative, with less energy output and a longer lifespan than bulbs. Our lighting professionals design, install and maintain your lighting system to serve your needs today, promote a greener alternative and provide new lighting features as your landscape changes.

Garden Services

We enjoy creating and maintaining your exterior living environment for your enjoyment and use. Schmechtig Landscapes’ Garden Services focuses on enhancing your featured perennial garden design, specialized seasonal annual containers, flower bed design and landscape bed enrichment. This special and personal design service is complementary to our annual maintenance clients. From a few seasonal container pots for your home’s front entrance and patio, to renovating a section of your existing landscape, to the small areas in your yard that could benefit from a little ‘sprucing up’ Garden Services will take care of everything: design, plant material selection, and installation.

Green Practices

Schmechtig Landscapes is committed to a sustainable environment by providing and promoting products and services to enhance a client’s landscape for the present and future. We assist homeowners who are interested with products and methods to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points toward their residence and assist commercial properties to become LEED certified. Our professionals knowledge in green roofs, water conserving irrigation products, efficient lighting systems, permeable paving, drought tolerant native plants and renewable technologies collectively result in reduced water, heating and cooling usage and costs. All plant waste from our maintenance and construction sites are converted into rich organic compost which is then used on new construction sites to prepare plant beds. We recycle brass, copper, steel and iron products which we remove from our projects. Our office staff contributes by using recycled paper, creating electronic documents to reduce paper use and recycling office waste.

Container Pot Service

Our artistic container pots provide a creative arrangement of plants and flowers adding warmth and fragrance to your outdoor living areas. Our designs are ideal for entryways, patios and small gardens. As the seasons change, we design each arrangement to reflect your individual tastes and preferences enhancing the seasonal colors to your environment for you to enjoy.

Holiday Lighting

Our staff will meet with you to determine your lighting needs, whether it for your home, or business. We design, build and implement the type of lighting displays for what you want to accomplish. We offer you quality service and maintenance. When you are ready, we will uninstall and at your request store your holiday lights and decorations at our facility.

Exterior Staging

The exterior spaces of a home are the first impression of a property for the individual listing their home to sell or the new owner who just moved in and wants to make their new house feel like their home. Schmechtig Landscapes will consult, design and install an exterior staging solution that exceeds expectations and enhances the enjoyment and use of the outdoor living environment.

Nursery

Schmechtig Landscapes owns and operates 40 acres with specimen trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, drought tolerant native plants and flowering perennials. This allows us to provide clients with superior Midwest-acclimated specimen plants. We use our own rich organic compost made of plant waste from our maintenance and construction sites.

“We worked with one of their designers (Ling) on the landscape and hardscape of our newly purchased house on Sheridan Rd. There were challenges here as the home is historical, in a very strict zoning district and would require extensive appeals with the city of Evanston. Ling was very helpful in all of those hurdles and produced an outdoor front & back to reflect the beauty of the home and the beauty of the location. We are very happy with the results and couldn’t have picked a better designer to make it happen.”
