Upgrade Your Driveway or Patio with Brick

Instead of having concrete pathways or driveways, brick can be a noticeable upgrade to the norm. Brick will give your home an upscale look compared to concrete or loose rock. Our Orland Park and Lockport teams are authorized contractors for Unilock products and materials. We use high-quality materials and equipment to make installation easier and quicker. 

Our hardscape installations are covered by a five-year warranty. Our brick paving and design team can walk you through how you want your driveway or pathways to look. We have several options to choose from if you are searching for a certain color or style for your outdoor landscape.

Practice Golfing with Your Own Putting Green

Want to practice your golfing skills without leaving your home? Groundskeeper Landscape Care can design a putting green inside or outside of your home. Adding a putting green will help you get your putting practice in and be a point of conversation with your guests. Our Lemont teams will install a putting green to fit your needs and your space. This investment will improve your putting skills and be fun-filled addition to your home.

Our expert team can customize your putting green to fit your specifications including fringe, bunkers, tee boxes, and other additions depending on how much space is available. Building your putting green requires specific skills and training, so it is best to hire a professional to install your putting green. While you may be able to DIY your putting green, it is not as easy as it may seem. We use quality materials to build the best indoor or outdoor putting greens. 

Avoid Erosion and Flooding Problems with Retaining Walls

Besides adding curb appeal and value to your New Lenox, IL property, retaining walls help you avoid erosion or flood damage to your home. These types of damage can be costly, but our team will help you avoid expensive repairs with a retaining wall. Retaining walls hold back significant amounts of soil on an elevated surface. Installing retaining walls should be done by professionals and those with experience.

If you install a retaining wall incorrectly, the foundation of the retaining wall will not be able to hold the immense weight of the soil. Improper drainage can also cause retaining walls to fail. If this happens, you’ll have to spend more money fixing your retaining wall and the damage to your home. Our team understands how retaining walls need to be built to hold the soil for years to come.

Groundskeeper Landscape Care offers other hardscaping services such as walkways, outdoor kitchens and living areas, and fire features. Our Palos Park, IL teams can help you design your outdoor features to be functional and unique. Whether you know exactly what you want or only have a couple of ideas, our professionals are here to help. 

Enjoy Nature When You Add a Pond

Ponds and water features can make a unique addition to your property. Palos Park, Homer Glen, and other Chicago suburbs can enjoy birds, frogs, and the area’s other native wildlife. Ponds are an excellent feature to add to your property for beauty, relaxation, and to support natural habitats for plants and animals.

Our team builds beautiful, natural-looking ponds for you and the wildlife in your area to enjoy. Our ponds include the basic equipment and materials to have a clean, functional pond. We offer the option to have LED lighting added to your pond so that you can enjoy it when it is nighttime.

Enhance Your Living Space with Some Greenery
