Our team of experts can help you select from a variety of materials, including organic mulch and natural decorative stones, to create walkways, plant beds, and elevation tiers.

Mulch Design Service

Our mulch design service is tailored to help you create an outdoor space that is visually appealing and serves a functional purpose. Our team of experts can work with you to customize our services to your specific needs, incorporating mulch into plant beds or combining it with natural decorative stone to create an attractive landscape and enhance your property's curb appeal. In addition to that, mulch also offers several benefits, including improved soil structure, prevention of crusting of the soil surface, weed suppression, and moisture retention, which helps reduce the need for watering and prevent erosion. 

Our team can help you choose the right mulch to best suit your preferences and your landscape's specific requirements. We provide professional installation to ensure that your mulch design looks its best and lasts as long as possible.

Decorative Stone & Gravel Paths

One way to enhance your outdoor space's functionality and visual appeal is by adding a decorative stone & gravel pathway. These paths typically feature natural stepping stones surrounded by mulch or gravel, creating an attractive hardscaping feature that provides practical benefits such as drainage and erosion control. Light planting can be incorporated to further enhance the beauty of your landscape. 

At Ross & Jack's Landscaping, we can design and install the perfect decorative stone & gravel pathway that meets your unique needs and preferences. Our high-quality materials, sourced from local suppliers, ensure the longevity and durability of your walkway.

Stone & Boulder Accents

If you're looking to add a touch of natural beauty to your outdoor space, installing stone or boulder accents is the perfect solution. Our experts at Ross & Jack's Landscaping can help you choose the ideal type of stone to suit your unique needs and preferences.

Whether you're looking to create a stunning focal point, add functional elements like retaining walls, or enhance the beauty of your landscape, we have a variety of natural stones and boulder accents to choose from. Our skilled craftsmen will carefully install each stone to create a beautiful and functional outdoor space you can enjoy for years.

Outcropping Stone

Outcropping stone is an excellent addition to any landscape, as it creates a natural and rustic look that can be used to accentuate plant beds or add a decorative focal point. This material is available in various sizes, shapes, and colors, making it an ideal choice for creating rustic steps on a slope or mimicking the stone bluffs and escarpments found in nature. We work with high-quality materials and have the expertise in building outcropped stone hardscapes that will provide visual interest and prevent soil erosion.

Our experts at Ross & Jack's Landscaping can help you choose the suitable outcropping stones and design to complement your existing landscape and provide a long-lasting and beautiful addition to your outdoor space.


Ross & Jack's are the best around! Michael is amazing at designing. Our patio in our yard is fantastic, with Michael's knowledge and input he won over my husband and myself. I use Ross & Jack's for spring cleanup and soiling for my garden.

I have been using Ross & Jack's services for several years & have never been disappointed in their quality of work...whether it was a hardscape project, landscape design or Spring garden clean up. Michael & his team can always be counted on to complete all work professionally and with consistent attention to detail. Any email inquires always receive Michael's timely response. I am pleased to recommend Ross & Jack's for all landscape needs.

Helen S. Carol Stream

Incredible to work with. Michael had a well thought out design and was not pushy. He would give you his recommendations and work with what you wanted. Great service, great design, great installation. We had landscaping done (plants and grass) and they also replaced the front walkway. Quick install and cleaned everything up afterwards. They are the only people we will use. Would recommend to everyone.

Jill M. Elmhurst

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

We have a longer term plan to update landscaping and stonework around our front and backyards. Ross and jacks has been a great partner. They help us plan out the projects based on our priorities and budgets available. We know they will be there to assist as we work through the design and implementation process over the next few years.

Michelle C. Elmhurst

This is our second time working with Michael and his team and he never disappoints! He helped us transform our small 50 year old backyard and patchwork patio into an amazing paradise. The job included pavers, river rock, stepping stones and a lot of plants and mulch. Michael was very creative in utilizing our space, respectful of our budget, and always kept in communication with us. He took care of water drainage issues we were having as well. His crew is careful to keep everything neat and organized as they work, using drop-cloths etc. as needed, and finished the job by mowing lawn, trimming bushes, and leaving everything looking pristine. We are super happy with the results. Thanks Michael!
