Beautiful, Functional and Kind to the Earth


Good-Natured Landscapes integrates sustainable design, local ecology, native plants and garden artistry.  We design landscapes for what we define as true beauty: appearance, functionality, and benefiting all things sharing our Earth. We also work in partnership with you, listening to your needs and wants, plus sharing ideas.

We’re celebrating 10 years of designing beautiful, functional and kind to the Earth landscapes in 2015!
Serving most of Chicagoland’s Western Suburbs.
