Edible Landscaping Elements

At Endless Greens, one of our favorite things to do is incorporate aspects of edible landscaping, including raised beds, greenhouses, composters & vegetable gardens into our full landscape designs. Seamless integration of these features into patio, deck & walkway design is truly our specialty. 

Raised Beds

Raised beds provide a dedicated space for growing not only vegetables and fruits, but also perennials and showcase plants! 

Raised garden beds are optimal for growing  in a variety of environments and can be placed on many different types of surfaces, including:
 
  • Concrete
  • Balconies/decks
  • Contaminated Soil
 
Our raised garden beds are custom built from cedar are optimized for growing vegetables & plants.

Greenhouses

You can grow a variety of veggies and greens year round in Chicago!  These are more expensive, however these are permanent structures that require architectural plans. Green houses usually include heating and ventilation systems that are needed in our climate. 

The best thing is, regardless of the outside weather, you can grow fresh and healthy produce all year. We have installed hoop houses and green houses in several cities in the area and are experts with local building codes to keep you in compliance.

Hoop Houses

Hoop houses can grow almost the full year in the Chicago area and are a fraction of the cost of a green house. Made of tubular steel, our hoop houses are built to last a lifetime but can be easily taken down and moved if you do. They will hold up against very heavy winds, season after season. They are perfect for early season greens, hot summer tomatoes and peppers, and fall harvests too. You can count of 9 months worth of growing time.

Edible Gardens

Including a vegetable garden in your landscape design is a great way to provide food for your family! Having a dedicated space for food production can increase yield and enjoyment! Fencing provides protection from bunnies. All of our raised beds are filled with organic soil and compost mix. This ensures pesticide free growing from the start!
