Congratulations to our team for winning the Illinois Landscape Contractors Gold Award in the Special Events category. This is the 2nd consecutive year we have won the gold award in this category.
Every year U.S. Equities strives to make an impact on The Magnificent Mile by creating Seasonal Displays that are unique from the other gardens on the Avenue. This year we encouraged the client to remove a large water feature located in the parkway beds. Using large Japanese Maples, we created a ‘garden in the city’ feel that left the water feature a faint memory. These maples are unique to the Avenue and helped soften both the buildings from the street and the street traffic from pedestrians.
Removing the water feature helped to make the most of the small spaces of the Michigan Avenue beds. We benefited from the additional bed space that allowed for a more intricate design with layers, colors, and textures. Similarly, to enhance the sidewalk café on Huron, seasonal containers separated diners from pedestrians adding to ‘garden in the city’ ambiance. Similar plants used in both settings correlate the property as a whole.
Our unique plant choices and placement of the plants has resulted in a breathtaking annual display on Michigan Avenue.
Many thanks to Kurt Pflederer, Allie Corbett, Ed Hoffman, Cesario Moreno, Brian Walsh, Miguel Espinosa, Salvador Rojas Jr., and Renee TeVogt for their help in making this project a success!

The Palmisano family presented our design team with the challenge of updating the landscape of their contemporary home built in the 1980s. The design includes both a new paver driveway and a new patio in the backyard. The final design was able to enhance the unique architecture of the home and accomplish the desires of the Palmisano family.
Enjoy the pictures of this award-winning project!
