Landscaping for Your Home | Design & Installation Services
We start our landscaping by first meeting you at your home, and finding out exactly what you are wanting to achieve. After a brief consultation, we will begin to compile everything we have discussed and begin determining how to focus on the good points of your property and how to best utilize the space. After approximately three days, we will have a presentation ready for you. The presentation will be a computer generated design of how your property will look when professionally installed by our company.
We care about your property! Once you have chosen us to install your landscape, we will professionally perform the steps necessary to make your design come to life, all with being as least invasive as possible. We will not leave you with a muddy mess, only a beautiful, one of a kind landscape!
Show off your landscaping with a lasting paver or natural stone border! We call this the finishing touch; nothing quite completes a beautiful landscape like a beautiful border to match. Borders make edging and trimming easier, they deter moles, and keep grass/unwanted weeds from invading landscapes. We don't have to re-build your entire landscape to do this. Let us add this charming look to your landscape or replace/relay the old borders. This is done complete with compacted foundation to avoid settling.
Do you love your landscaping, but know it needs some major or minor enhancements? Let us bring it back to life! Many years of weather, age, and other factors take a toll on your landscape's appearance. Give us a call for a free estimate so we can show you just what we can do.
Landscape removal is included in the price of our new landscape installations. We remove all old plant material, including roots and root balls, leaving a clean palate and workable ground. This service is also available for customers who would like to install their own landscape but would like to have a professional company remove the old overgrown plants, trees, roots, and anything else they may want removed.
Landscape Mole Control:
Just when your landscaping starts to look nice, these damaging critters wreak havoc in your landscape and lawn. Let us take care of them. We are proud applicators of the very effective Talprid® Mole Treatment System. If you would like to read more about this product click here or please contact us for more information.

We appreciate all the ideas, energy and work you put into our project. From design through construction you were very professional, easy to work with, and committed to giving us what we wanted. We are very pleased with the result and in knowing we chose the right company to create our backyard experience.

We purchased or new Ranch style home nearly four years ago after living in a two-story for 20 plus years. This was the type of home and style of home my wife and I were searching for once we decided to move. We found our dream home sitting on 2 difficult acres. Once in the backyard, it sloped heavily down to a 1 Acre retention pond that was really in awful condition. We did see potential for something very special if we could find the right company to partner with. We met the entire staff at Envisioning green through an invitation to one of their Wine Open Houses. While there, we were able to see their many outdoor exhibits and view their picture portfolios and well as speak with some of their current and past customers.
Late last summer and we had their owner and designer over to discuss the entire project; both pond remediation and backyard creation. We wanted a pool, gas fire pit and an outdoor bar and as usually happens....once we got going, we added a little more!
The process was quite impressive as we gave them a list of must haves and a budget for the project. We did have change orders for things we elected to add but once we signed, it couldn't have gone smoother. The project turned out amazingly like the electronic design plan they initially presented us with no unwanted surprises. They worked through the winter, around the early spring rains and we are now enjoying our backyard immensely.
With our property, there was so much more complexity than what I'm able to describe here and we knew we couldn't turn this over to just any company based solely on price or promise. For the reasonable budget we gave them we received an "HGTV"" backyard in return. Great job Envisioning Green!

We now have our backyard oasis!!! Absolutely love how everything turned out. Brian and his crew were wonderful and paid very close attention to detail!! Any unexpected issues that came up, they were able to quickly fix and when we wanted to add on to the project we were able to get the supplies needed quickly. Overall job well done and can’t wait for future projects with Envisioning Green!! :) big thanks to Charles for the vision, Justin and Steven for keeping it all together and Brian and his crew for making it happen! Time to enjoy some backyard parties!

Don’t Want To Write This Review … Seriously
Having read the title, it would be understandable if your mind jumped to the assumption that I am preparing to present a plethora of faults with the company, the crew, the work … whatever. But nothing could be further from my thoughts. The reason for my not wanting to write this review is because reviews mark the end of something and I find it hard to meet this particular end; the people involved here, the ones leaving because their work is finished, are people I’ve come to so admire and care about.
I’m 63 years old. I’ve hired contractors throughout my life for big jobs, small jobs and all of those in between. Too often I’ve been profoundly amazed at the level of incompetence displayed by self-proclaimed professionals; their work so shoddy that one simply had to accept the entirety of their training must have come from watching YouTube videos or that some had perhaps once made a wooden letter holder for their mother and, having completed that arduous task, then decided they were skilled enough to build houses. After experiencing so many contractor related disappointments through the years, I finally came to often expect the worst as the new normal.
At 62, I bought my retirement home and soon decided it needed some updates that were far beyond my own ability to complete. I began with a clear vision of what I wanted and began seeking out a company, a partner, that could bring my ideas to life. I called or visited companies large and not-so-large and even approached recommended individuals. Most all of these I asked said they couldn’t do what I wanted and those few that said they could really didn’t have the quality materials, proper experience or share vision that I was looking for. In that I would be spending my retirement money on one-time projects, I could no longer afford to have contractors that were only going to provide me with “good-enough” or less. In driving around through southern Illinois and Missouri, I’d seen some beautiful places with completed projects similar to what I wanted but couldn’t bring myself to go up and ask any of the home owners who it was had done the work for them. My bad.
Then I began searching the internet with key terms like outdoor fireplace, stone staircase, outdoor kitchen, etc.; began searching images of such projects that closely matched what I had imagined. Clicking on an image would sometimes provide a link to the company that had built the project. And that’s how it was I came to find an image, clicked on it and discovered a link to Envisioning Green. I thought it an odd name but, hey, the image was all that and so I was willing to reach out this one more time.
Lindsey Bigham answered the phone when I rang Envisioning Green. I was in a mood and immediately launched into a rather loud and semi-accusatory rant the second she finished saying hello...
