Landscape Design

As a seasoned local landscape design company, we bring years of experience in transforming drab, uninspiring landscapes into beautiful outdoor living spaces. Not only are they functional and aesthetically-pleasing, they are built to add significant value to your property. We’re proud to be a landscaper that actually listens to your priorities and aims to deliver a design that fulfills your expectations. In the end, your yard may very well be the envy of many neighbors on the block.

Landscape Design

When the time comes to landscape your home or business, we understand that it may be difficult to visualize the result. For this reason, we offer our clients digital landscape design layouts. With this invaluable tool, you will be able to see a tangible picture of what your exterior will look like when it’s done…before we even start constructing it.

Outdoor Living Spaces

Transform your exterior into a more comfortable, stylish living space for relaxing and entertaining family and friends. We strategically blend organic softscape design with natural stone, mulch, brick pavers and specialty fire features to create a backyard escape you can unwind in every day. Treat yourself to an outdoor kitchen, fire pit or fireplace and create a space that’s perfect for entertaining and relaxing.

Softscape Design

We love crafting custom exteriors that are bursting with natural beauty through our garden landscaping. A yard void of plant life tends to feel cold and uninviting. Revitalize your outdoor space by planting trees, shrubs, and flowers. Whether you’re looking for more natural privacy or you simply want to create a more welcoming environment around your property, our garden landscape design services are the best place to start.

Decorative Stone & Mulch

Decorative stone and mulch installation will enhance your exterior space. They also assist with drainage, erosion, and improve soil condition. Large boulders make beautiful accents for plant beds and tiered outcropping stone are designed to mimic stone bluffs found in nature.

Brick Paving

Our company is known for our stunning hand-laid paver designs. From simple patterns to intricate creations, we use hardscapes to help you craft an exquisite custom paver patio with fire pit, walkway, driveway, or entertaining space complete with seat wall using modern paver stones. We hardscape design and install your brick-paved surfaces so you only need deal with one reliable, reputable company from start to finish.

Fire Features

As a fire pit contractor, we believe it can be a great addition to your landscape design, becoming the favorite gathering place for friends and family. Many a chilly Illinois night can be enjoyed grilling, roasting marshmallows and sipping your favorite beverage when you’ve got a fire to keep you warm. If you’re longing to extend the outdoor mingling season, an outside fireplace or fire pit is the perfect solution.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls may be necessary when your property has significant slope area. It accommodates changes in grade in a landscape with uneven topography and provides you more space for landscaping. Aside from providing functionality, our retaining walls services help prevent soil erosion and provide structural support. What’s more, our retaining walls installation can help transform your space into a striking landscaping masterpiece when combined with our other landscape design services.

Drainage Solutions

Struggling with standing water or erosion on your grounds? Our well-planned landscaping drainage services can resolve these issues, keeping your lawn dry, your soil aerated and your plants fed with nutrients. The major benefit of having Ross & Jack’s Landscaping handle your yard drainage system rather than a traditional plumber is that we will not only fix the issue, we will restore the land when we’re done rather than leaving you with a torn up lawn.

Dry Wells

Installing dry wells is an effective way to get rid of water from your lawn or yard quickly. As a dry well expert, we utilize this solution to help your lawn dry out quickly after every heavy rain. It allows water to move back into the groundwater, giving your plants and trees access to the water without drowning them in puddles. Our home and landscape design team can help.


A great experience from start to finish and could not be happier with the outcome! We worked with Mike and his team, which was an incredible experience. Everyone was very patient, the follow up was great, knowledge was even better, and the quality of work left us speechless. I would recommend using Ross and Jacks to anyone that is looking to have any sort of remodeling or landscaping done.

Dan S. Elmhurst

We are very satisfied with our annual maintenance plan from Ross & Jack's Landscaping. They address the lawn, shrubs, and everything green! We receive lots of compliments from neighbors and family. The entire operations team at Ross & Jack's is highly attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. We appreciate their assistance when we have questions about treatments or installation.

Markel B. Westchester

I have worked with Ross & Jacks Landscaping for over 15 years. They do a great job taking care of all my landscaping needs which includes seasonal cleanup service/yard maintenance and the planting of trees, bushes and perennial plants. I also have had them fix drainage issues in my backyard. Their staff is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Ross & Jacks Landscaping.

Timothy W. Schaumburg

I've been using Ross & Jacks for the past 16 years in Elmhurst. Their staff does top notch quality work and I'm always amazed when I see the finished product. I would trust no one else with my landscaping design projects. I've recommended them to many friends and family through the years and they always nail it.

Tony S. Elmhurst

Ross & Jacks Landscaping have been our landscapers for years. We find the management and the workers to be reliable and polite. Their work is always above expectations. We highly recommend this business.

Enza V. Northlake

I came upon Ross & Jack's several years ago and could not be happier! Michael & his crew have now designed and installed at 2 houses we've lived in. Their knowledge, guidance, budget management, follow up and maintenance is exceptional! I can't wait for the next project to start!

Jen G. Elmhurst

Ross and Jack’s monthly maintenance plan is phenomenal! They take care of all of our yard work for the year, starting with a big spring cleanup (we add on mulching), then coming weekly to mow, edge, trim bushes, remove leaves, etc, then ending with a big fall cleanup. On top of that, they also aerate, fertilize, seed, etc. It’s significantly simplified and eased our lives, both taking care of things we’ve previously done ourselves as well as consolidating yard services into a single, reliable, and trustworthy provider. Even better, it’s a very fair price for everything they do. Michael and the team are super responsive to any questions or requests and are true professionals in every way. We highly recommend Ross and Jack’s and look forward to using their monthly maintenance plan going forward!

David W. La Grange

The team at Ross & Jack's are top notch. Michael did an overhaul of our landscaping. His designs were great, he was open to feedback and changes, and was very patient as we made decisions about what we wanted to do. They don't nickel and dime you, they take pride in their work and will make sure you are equally as happy in the end. They also do our weekly yard maintenance and we've received so many compliments on how great it looks whenever we have guests. We look forward to our continued partnership!

Joelle C. Elmhurst

These guys are the best. All my friends and family comment how nice our backyard and lawn look. It’s thanks to these guys!! So worth the money!! Top notch. My neighbor has a similar set up to mine but he uses one of those mow and go guys and there’s no comparison how much better my guys are.

Walter O. Elmhurst

We are beyond happy with Ross & Jack! Everyone is easy to work with and their work is impeccable!!

Jeannine C. Western Springs

We have used Ross & Jack's since we moved to our home 5 years ago. We have used them to resod our lawn, build a retaining wall and plant a row of privacy trees. The work Michael and his team do has always impressed me as well as the quality of the materials used. We plan to do other projects with them in the near future. I highly recommend Ross and Jack's.

Mark K., Hinsdale

We have been customers since we moved to the suburbs. Always do great work and a very reasonable price. Each time we have had questions or problems arose they worked with us to find the most effective and economical option. They even talked me out of spending more money on some edging and the end result was much better than the more expensive option.

Christopher J. Elmhurst

Worked with Ross & Jacks on both landscaping as well as on-going yard service. We are very happy with the quality of the work they do and the responsiveness to our requests and questions. Highly suggest working with them if you are in Elmhurst and looking for a trustworthy landscaping service.

David C. Elmhurst

Ross & Jack's have totally changed our yard! We are so very pleased with the design they offered, the on-time installation, literally everything about their work. We jumped at the chance to have them do weekly lawn maintenance. Every week they arrive like clockwork with a team that does a complete, professional job. If you have a messed up yard like ours was- contact Ross & Jack's. You will love, love, love what they do.

Tim S. Villa Park

I was pleasantly surprised at the professionalism and knowledgeable skills shown at my yard clean-up today. The guys were on time and started working right away and did not stop until they were entirely done. The front of my home was really drab looking with the old worn out shrubs and weeds throughout the yard. Ross & Jacks team came in and did a fantastic job. I feel proud of my lawn again and looking forward to working with them on future projects. "Great Job"

Diana M. Hillside

Ross & Jack's, and especially Michael Spatola have been fantastic to work with. Michael was able to come out and take a very wooded / unkept area and turn it into a work of art. We have hired them for 4 different projects now, including retaining walls, a dry-bed creek re-design, multiple plant beds, re-shaping the front of the house landscaping, a patio project and much more. They consistently perform above our expectations, at a reasonable cost, and communicate very well. I would highly recommend Ross & Jack's for your next project

Michael S. Hinsdale

Ross and Jack’s Landscaping was an absolute pleasure to work with this past summer. Michael was extremely quick to respond to all of our inquiries and a pleasure to plan things out with. He provided us with ideas and suggestions to make the most out of our backyard redesign. From laying new sod, to reimaging the flowers and shrubs in our backyard, everything turned out wonderful. We will be using their services again in the near future and would recommend them to anyone needed landscaping services.

Chad J. Lombard

Mark and his team are amazing and extremely professional. They are always on time and they do such a great job on trimming all bushes, pulling weeds and lawn care - the full package. I would highly recommend especially for Spring and Fall prep and cleanup. They do such a great job cleaning up once they are done. Leaving your home’s landscaping looking beautiful and refreshed.

Sylvia C. Addison

Michael and his team did an amazing job, we’re so happy with the process and the result. We completely redid the front steps and front landscaping. Michael’s designs and ideas really took us from blah to beautiful. The whole team is excellent and every detail is really thought through and executed excellently. Even when hiccups come up (as every homeowner knows they do!), Michael and his team help solve it reasonably and professionally. I’m so proud at how the front of our house looks now and even happier to recommend Ross & Jack’s when people ask - and MANY ask!

Amanda La Grange

Ross & Jack's did an amazing job at our house. From start to finish I could not be more impressed by their detailed approach. They drew up a great plan, and were able to execute on everything my wife and I had on our "wish list." I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a GREAT landscaping company.

​The quality of a new lawn is directly related to the success of establishment. Turf establishment begins with careful planning, knowledge of soil conditions, and an understanding of the environmental and cultural requirements of turfgrasses. Ross & Jack's Landscaping provides a step-by-step approach to turf establishment and renovation. Our site evaluation will determine whether seeding or sodding will be the proper approach for renovating existing turf and establishing new grass lawn areas.


Sodding is an excellent and quick way to acquire an instant lawn. When time is of the essence or the existing turf warrants a total renovation, sodding becomes a viable option. The first step in developing new turf for your residential or commercial property is a complete site evaluation, including soil and turf analysis. It’s imperative that the right grass is chosen and that the proper soil conditions exist for it to flourish. Our sod installation services cover the professional laying down of pre-grown grass after we have exposed and prepared the soil. The sod is set in around 2-3 weeks and you will have an instantly beautiful lawn.

Tree, Shrub & Flower Planting

Showcase nature’s most beautiful elements throughout your exterior with softscape landscape design to increase the beauty and charm of your yard or commercial grounds. Our shrub, flower and tree planting services take into account your objectives for adding greenery around your property, whether it be to create more privacy or to add organic style through colorful flowers and perennial shrubs. We incorporate native plants, shrubs and trees that do well in Northern Illinois’ four-season climate. We consult with you on specimen selection and always recommend the hardiest of plants.

Spring & Fall Clean Up

The beauty of changing seasons with colors turning and flowers blooming is a wonder to behold. Yet with these wonderful transitions comes the burden of upkeep. Which is why Fall and Spring clean up is incorporated into our grounds maintenance program. Seasonal support includes leaf pickup, weeding, shrub pruning and trimming, edging of plant beds and walkways, turning over soil, power sweeping and more.
