Nature’s Perspective Landscaping has been in business since 1979, fully licensed, bonded and insured. We are a member of the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association (ILCA), a professional organization committed to best practices in landscaping.
We use high quality machinery and equipment that is well-kept and well-maintained. Our professional crews are courteous, well-trained and expedient. Our supervisors each possess more than 20 years’ experience with our company, and are ILCA Certified Landscape Technicians. Together, we work to pro-actively monitor landscapes to address potential problems, such as insect and disease diagnosis, pruning needs and hazardous situations.
Our maintenance manager can meet you on-site to determine a program for your property.
Our All-Inclusive Landscape Maintenance package includes the following applications and services to keep your landscape investment well-maintained and looking its best. It is billed in eight (8) fixed monthly payments a year, from April through November.

Fertilization in spring, summer and fall, to provide lawn and bed plants essential nutrients to thrive.
ORGANIC FERTILIZATION AND SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES
Eco-friendly, organic lawn and bed fertilizers and pest controls that are safe around children and pets upon application.
Weed control applications in spring and fall to prevent unsightly broad-leaved and grass-like weeds from appearing on your lawn.
Overseeding of bare spots in lawns in spring and late summer, using quality, endophyte-treated grass seed.
PRUNING OF ORNAMENTAL TREES AND SHRUBS
