Baleigh S. Burr Ridge

I wish I could give you MORE than 5 stars! Tom, Ron, and their construction and landscaping teams worked tirelessly to design and execute our backyard and patio plans by our deadline. They are extremely trustworthy, professional, and do everything they can to ensure that their customers are happy during the process and with the final product. Our backyard that began as a muddy, rotten wood of a mess is now a beautiful place for my family and I to both relax and entertain alike. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Andy A. Downers Grove

A really great company to work with, top to bottom. Chris, the owner, was a pleasure to do business with. Tom was amazing at helping us with the design and the work couldn’t have been quicker.

I have hired American Gardens both personally and professionally over the past 20 years. They have both designed and installed creative, functional landscapes at my homes, and also in two suburban downtowns that I have managed during this period. With meticulous attention to detail and responsive consideration to maintenance they have consistently knocked it out of the park. Their design and installation of seasonal plantings in Downtown Oak Park, Illinois won kudos from Chicagoland Gardening Magazine. If you are looking to make a statement that is far and above the status quo, this is the landscaping design and build firm for you!

They expanded and repaved our back patio and redid our front landscaping. They came up with a great plan and worked within our budget to get us exactly what we wanted. She was professional, prompt in getting back to us, and knowledgeable. The crew worked hard to complete our job in a timely manner. When a few of the plants didn’t survive the summer heat, they were replaced (as stated in the warranty). We are very happy with the finished product and highly recommend them!

Julie N Downers Grove

Right from the start we knew they were who we wanted to work with for our backyard project. Tom’s design was exactly the modern look I was envisioning for our patio. Ron was always available for questions and made sure in the end everything was completed to our liking. Thank you!”


Jerry was wonderful. He listened patiently to my litany of wants and managed to get 90% of my wishes. The remaining 10% was due to my budget. He used as many existing plants as possible. Would definitely use them again. They’re not the most inexpensive but the outstanding service makes up for it!!


The work went great… We met several times to discuss what we wanted and they worked well with us, adding good ideas and scaling back things we thought we could do ourselves… They were always here when they said they would be and we were very happy with the results.


Fabulous quality, team, and responsiveness…They always deliver top results. The team in particular is wonderful from management on down.
