Quality Landscape Design Services in Chicagoland & Southern Wisconsin

From the initial on-site design meeting, we work with home and business owners with open communication and idea sharing.

We take the time to listen to your ideas and offer solutions that make sense as well as align with your vision for your property.

We provide a clear plan and process for each landscape design project.

And we work as your partner… from the first consultation to the final walk-through where we guarantee our work, your experience with Buhrman Design Group will be insightful, creative and thorough.

Buhrman Design Group provides the following landscape, hardscape, water features, tree and shrub care, landscape architecture and maintenance services in the North shore of Chicagoland areas of Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Winnetka and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.


Our work begins with an initial site visit, where we outline our capabilities and learn about the scope of your project.

We’ll share our ideas and offer professional recommendations to demonstrate the value of our work…and, save you money!

After our initial meeting, we’ll return with professional landscape design plans for your review along with a statement outlining the scope of costs. We’ll do our best to work within your budget to provide the landscape you want at an affordable price.


When it comes to custom designed and constructed driveways, walkways, patios and retaining walls,

the skilled craftsmen at Buhrman Design Group offer unmatched beauty and quality. Using natural stone, custom pavers and other durable materials, our masons will deliver a striking, yet durable solution that will age with beauty and maintain its classic style.

Water Features

Quite simply, nothing compares to the power and beauty of water.

Whether you’re looking for a grand, multi-tiered waterfall or a simple pond with a charming fountain, the aquatic experts at Buhrman Design Group have the perfect solution for you.

We will design the ideal water features for your property and install hardy aquatic plantings that will enhance the beauty of your landscape and welcome nature to your door.

Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture focuses on the relationship between people and nature. It takes a look at how we live, work and interact with the world outside our doors. It begins with listening…taking the time to understand your needs and goals.

Our aim is to harness the potential of your property, by creating structures of enduring quality and design, and landscapes that transform with color and beauty, creating seasonal surprise and constant wonder. From pergolas, gazebos, conservatories and pavilions to bridges, fountains, lakes and streams…if you can dream it…we can build it!

Tree and Shrub Care

Maximize your landscape investment by ensuring that your trees and shrubs stay healthy and disease free.

Protect your plantings from harmful pests and disease with routine fertilization, pruning and preventive disease control. Our team of professional arborists will do an onsite analysis, assess the concern and outline a detailed care program to preserve and extend the life of your valuable trees and shrubs.

One or more of the following programs is recommended to keep your plantings in peak condition.

Landscape Maintenance

Your new landscape will be filled with only the highest quality plantings. But a healthy land-scape also requires regular maintenance to keep your plantings vital, strong and looking good.

Why bother with the hard work and hassle of landscape maintenance when you can call upon Buhrman Design Group to handle all of your maintenance needs.
