Design Services in the Chicagoland Area

Experience and proficiency to work with you and create your perfect outdoor setting

What makes a great outdoor area rests in the needs and tastes of the owner. While some people prize seclusion and privacy, others delight in creating a space for social gatherings. Accordingly, the first step of our process is a detailed consultation. We’ll work with you to identify your objectives, discuss the space you’d like to create, and explore your options for achieving your goals. After our initial meeting we use vivid, full color 2D layouts and 3D photorealistic renderings to bring your vision to life. Unveiling the plan is an exciting stage in the process which often sparks fresh ideas which we can then incorporate into the design.

Build

Building begins! Count on your space to be customized to your wishes and specifications while still being functional and sustainable. Some of the structures we are able to implement include water features, new driveways or walkways, lighting, retaining walls, and native plants.

Always Kind, Always On Time

“I found Apex doing a Houzz search, and was contacted by Mike B. the next day. Mike is an extremely professional, creative, responsive individual. From answering the 100's of questions my husband and I threw at him, to helping us with recommendations, he was truly amazing!! Very professional, always on time, and was agile when we changed our mind or added scope to the project as it went along. We will be loyal customers of Apex for life as a direct result of the work and responsiveness.”
