Edible Landscape Design and Installation
What is Edible Landscaping?
Edible Landscaping, sometimes called Foodscaping, is a type of landscaping in which all or major areas of a lawn on private property are used to grow food! It is a hyrbid between farming and landscaping.
What can we grow in the Chicagoland area?
This is a great question and largely depends on the soil and light conditions of the property. We have come up with a list of principles that every Chicagoland area edible landscape should include:
A combination of annual and perennial vegetable and fruit production.
An herb spiral that provides all of our favorite kitchen herbs throughout the season.
Container gardens, raised beds or fencing for growing directly in the ground.
Vertical growth, including trellised structures for delicious fruits like raspberries and blackberries.
The creation of compost on site.
Fruit bushes and trees as ornamental and tasty landscapes, our favorite is the blueberry hedge!
