Frontyard Landscaping
“We are very pleased with the work Rick and the team at Landscape Creations did with our front yard. His design creativity was instrumental in solving the challenges of our sloped front yard and drainage issues. His team was always on time, professional, and courteous and the entire project was done within the timeframe Rick said it would be. We will definitely work with Rick and his team on our next project.”

Backyard Landscaping“We had just moved into our new construction home and all we had outside our kitchen slider was was a rather steep sloping yard. We love being outdoors and knew we wanted a patio, we just weren’t sure what kind of design would work for us based on the slope of the yard. We were referred to Rick MacRoy / Landscape Creations by a friend who was extremely pleased with the work he did for them. We had already received multiple quotes and were getting antsy to move forward but boy are we glad we called Rick. The 1st time Rick came to our house he listened to what we “thought” we were envisioning and after taking several measurements from the yard he came inside, sat down and explained to us precisely why (in his opinion) our original ideas were probably not the best based on the steep slope. He asked for a pencil and paper and proceeded to draw 3 completely different (multiple level) designs. All 3 designs were absolutely amazing and somehow each one brought out everything we told him we wanted. If you know exactly what you want, Rick can build it for you; but if all you know is you want a patio to enjoy the outdoors and have absolutely no idea what design is right for you, do yourself a favor and call Rick….. He will listen to everything you have to say and then somehow within minutes you will be looking at multiple “freehand” drawings that I promise, will impress you! Rick is an absolute perfectionist and his attention to detail from start to finish is 2nd to none. The final product (our new “outdoor oasis”) is better than we ever imagined. I can’t tell you you how many people have stopped, and continue to stop, to look at our backyard. We highly recommend Rick and Landscape Creations to everyone, and if Rick builds your patio we’re quite certain you will be recommending him as well.

Thanks Rick, to you and your entire team!”

“I had been hesitant about replacing our outdated wooden deck because it still looked good and we had two kids in college. Our priority at the time was to replace our front sidewalk and driveway. Many of our neighbors had Landscape Creations design and build their patios and highly recommended them.

We called Landscape Creations and set up an appointment. Long story short after seeing their suggested plans we decided to re-landscape both our front and back yards. Landscape Creations completed all of our work on schedule and the suggested plantings were a perfect compliment!

Also, our neighbors were very appreciative of the professionalism of the crew and respect for their property and the worksite.

Many thanks to Rick and his crew for creating a beautiful outdoor living space! Without hesitation we recommend Landscape Creation to anyone interested in creating a unique and comfortable outdoor area.”

“Rick and his team at Landscape Creations completed two projects for us over the years. Their work is professional and high quality as they pay attention to, and address, every detail. They completed a patio project for us recently and every morning when we look out at the patio, we smile. We highly recommend Landscape Creations to our family, friends and neighbors!”

Backyard Landscaping“We had received bids from two companies to install a 225’ long brick paver driveway. We opted to accept the bid of forty thousand dollars ($40,000) instead of the fifty thousand ($50,000) bid from Landscape Creations. Both companies seemed to be using the same amounts of building materials.

In just two (2) years, our driveway started to fail. It was sinking along the tire track areas and draining improperly, causing foundation leaks. We hired an engineer who determined that the base for the driveway was insufficiently installed and the pitch of the driveway was just plain wrong. After going through the hassles of a lawsuit against the installer, we asked Rick and Landscape Creations to fix the driveway for us, and they did!

Just watching the difference in the installation procedures made us realize what a mistake it was hiring the less expensive company in the first place. (You get what you pay for). The attention to detail exhibited by Landscape Creations is the reason they are who they are. We also hired Landscape Creations to install some huge pieces of stone to create a wall and a walkway around much of our house. It turned out amazing, and everyone who sees the stonework can’t say enough about it! We would, and do recommend Rick and Landscape Creations to everyone with the peace of mind that they won’t let us down for recommending them.

“I have been so pleased with the Decorative Wall and Lighting work you did for me and am really satisfied with your follow up service. Last year the address stone had discolored and you replaced it, no questions asked, no charges for the replacement. This year a light stopped working and you came out and repaired it. Again, no questions, no charges. It is nice to do business with a company you can trust and that stands behind their work. Thank you so much!”

— Marge Engdahl, Wheaton, IL


“Your crew was always courteous, on time and professional while working with us. Your feel for plant placement, coupled with the knowledge of the sauna, made for a superb and well-rounded ambiance in our yard. The preparation and placement of each decorative rock and paver was time consuming and was executed to the highest construction industry standards.

You implemented the plan from the beginning efficiently and you followed up to insure that the work done was always to our satisfaction.

If you want a landscape design and installation that would add value and beauty to your home, Landscape Creations is the place to call”

“Thank you, Rich! We love our patio…and the little nook for the two of us. You’re the best — you make dreams come true!. ”

— Rita and Gerry

“We had just built a gorgeous new home and within a month the patio and sidewalk the builder installed sunk! We were pretty upset and the builder did not have anyone who could fix it or seem to know what they were doing.

After speaking with Rick and understanding that the builder’s install was not performed properly, we worked with him to create not 1, not 2, but 3 patios(!) using his passion, knowledge and creative ideas. He completely reinstalled and redesigned our front walkway for an awesome, inviting entry that extended our front brick porch area which accented double glass doors. Our house backs up to the prairie and is 155 x 255, but the landscaping initially installed from the builder was small and did not enhance the house or lot.

WOW! Rick has this idea to engage boulders, grasses, flowers wrapping around the entire house making the whole lot an oasis! We spend each night at our fire pit and enjoy the beauty Rick created and understand his passion is truly amazing as the outcome could not have been any better. We love our home now and feel everything is complete! Thank you Landscape Creations, everyone who works for you and the caring touch you put into everything you do!”

“Dear Rick,

We want to thank you for the terrific job you and your crew did on our patio.  We had no idea where to begin-we only knew we had an ugly deck and some drainage issues. You came in, addressed all our concerns and designed a beautiful patio that far exceeded our expectations!

Your crew was wonderful- hardworking, friendly and, above all, very skilled. We also want to thank you for returning after the job was finished to address some concerns we had about potential water coming down our cellar stairwell. You solved the problem (quickly!) and charged us only nominally for the extra work.  We can’t tell you how much we appreciate your willingness to go the extra mile. We, wholeheartedly, will recommend you to anyone looking for quality and craftsmanship!”

“Dear Landscape Creations Team,

We wanted to send a great big thank you for your terrific work in our back yard. You made the entire process a pleasant experience. From Rick’s first visit to his last (this spring to see how the plants fared through the winter) we’ve been quite pleased.

He listened to our ideas for the space, took into consideration our desire for good butterfly perennials and bird trees, and returned with multiple sketches of options that we eventually combined into a final drawing. His expertise in gardening was evident by the great variety of plants he suggested for different growing conditions and the overall design of the garden. He also broke down his prices for each component so that we could easily pick and choose our priorities or plan to do the work in phases. And, all of this occurred before we signed a contract or were asked for any payment.

During the project, Landscape Creations followed the best construction practices, and incorporated many details that we couldn’t find in other contractors’ work. The team was very conscientious about their work and even cleaned up each night. Whenever we had questions or concerns Rick took as much time to talk as we needed and always made us feel welcome to ask.

We spoke with several landscaping firms before selecting one. None offered the same combination of creative design ideas and great value. With Landscape Creations, we received an amazing design from Rick that eventually won an award from Unilock and got the best quality work we could find, at a price that was very fair. Best of all, we’ve been enjoying the space ever since!

Thanks, Rick, to you and your entire crew!”

“A walk in the park is now just a step out our door since Landscape Creations installed a magnificently landscaped Unilock® path to a quiet garden nook in our own back yard.”

— Eldred and Marianne Denny, Elmhurst

“Every summer we’d have to rebuild and replant from the winter and spring damage. Landscape Creations designed and built a natural stone retaining wall that actually became a focal point in our yard. It’s amazing how much more we got than we expected!”

— The Williams, Wheaton

“Who would have thought a landscaped Unilock® brick driveway would make such a difference. It used to be that I couldn’t wait to get in the door. Now, I can’t wait to just get home.”

— The Cuthbertsons, Glen Ellyn


“We used Landscape Creations to design and build a backyard patio with landscaping. We were so impressed with the quality and their workmanship that we called them back for a much larger project where they again far exceeded our expectations. Rick, Rich and their team have the rare, in-depth knowledge and experience that other companies are always striving to obtain.

Both times they took the time to understand what we wanted and even helped us to clarify our thoughts by showing us multiple options and ideas that we had never envisioned. We have received more compliments than we can count on both their projects and would immediately call Landscape Creations for any future landscape projects.”

— Dennis Anest, Glen Ellyn


“Landscape Creations truly made our home a castle! Thank you to Landscape Creations for their outstanding work crew and unbelievable clean-up at the end of each day. We really appreciated the monitoring of each step along the way and we were amazed to see our dream being realized.

— Gerry & Rita Ruttendjie, Wheaton

“Too often a good job goes unrewarded, not this one. My wife Sylvia and I are so pleased we have to let you know how much. Not only is the completed work pleasing, but the whole process was professional. Your ideas along with our needs combined to make the entire process enjoyable. The men were very skilled and eager to please us, answering questions and remaining ever courteous. Thank you for a beautiful entrance and patio.”

— Richard & Sylvia Colucci, Wheaton

“Landscape Creations exceeded our expectations in every way. When they expertly re-designed our old asphalt driveway into a magnificent driveway using beautiful pavers that enhance the color and style of our home. They excel in creativity, design concepts, landscape design and workmanship while integrating all the new elements to enhance an existing home and terrain. The owners and the workmen take tremendous pride in their work and the end result is truly a “work of art.” They gave our home incredible curb appeal not only with a gorgeous driveway, but with a newly added courtyard and paved porch entry. We love everything they did and they were wonderful to work with.”

— Steve & Sheri Peterson, Glen Ellyn


“We have used the services of Landscape Creations to create a wonderful brick patio and to landscape our backyard. Rich MacRoy and his son, Rick, have always displayed creativity, craftsmanship and reliability in all their efforts on our behalf. Several years after the patio was installed, one of the hundreds of bricks came loose. With one phone call to Landscape Creations, that condition was fixed within two or three days. Once fixed, that brick has never come loose again. We remain very satisfied with all of the plants used in the landscaping of the backyard which we greatly enjoy. We would recommend, without reservation, Rich MacRoy and his son, Rick, and their fine business, Landscape Creations, to anyone needing landscaping services.”

— Jane & Ted Duncan, Glen Ellyn


“We wanted to convert our backyard into an outdoor living space, however we did not know how to begin.

One phone call led us to Rick MacRoy. Rick spent considerable time listening to our ideas and through his vision and talent, the plans for our yard began to unfold. He and his crew were diligent and detailed in their work ethic.

The end result was an award winning outdoor living space completed on time and within budget. Whenever anyone enters our yard, it is received with rave reviews. We now have a beautiful outdoor space along with the amenities to entertain our friends and family. ”

— Tom and Paula Worniak

“I didn’t know what I wanted, I just knew I wanted a change. I called Landscape Creations and after a few meetings with Rich we came up with an exciting plan.

Rick and his crew gave me a top quality job in about a week. I can’t tell you how many times strangers have stopped to compliment me on the look of my yard. Now my small ordinary ranch house looks like a million bucks. Check out the picture (BA1) on this website.”

— Bob Neal, Lombard, IL

“I just wanted to thank you for being one of the best groups to work with. It is truly an enjoyable experience, your customer service is tremendous, and I mean it when I say you make the difficult look easy. You run an impeccable business and it shows.”
