Why Us?

Gareth and Valerie Proctor
Founders & Owners 
Hello and welcome! We look forward to “bringing the happy” by designing and installing an outdoor space that you can endlessly enjoy.
We are a small but dynamic green minded design and build company.  We are a family owned and run business based in Evanston, IL.  As a green minded business that cares about the environment we do the majority of our work in Evanston and very close surrounding towns.  We focus on wowing our clients with exceptional service, budget management, and sustainable practices while delivering quality workmanship. We handle every aspect of every project we work on from start to finish.  
We have over 20 consecutive years experience in design and architecture, botany, carpentry, soil sciences, masonry, electrical work, stormwater management, general contracting, and more.  Our company takes the time to keep focused on the best building, design, and installation techniques in the industry.   We use all of this knowledge and experience to design and build endlessly enjoyable outdoor spaces.     
 We are talented, experienced, passionate, and we can't wait to work with you!
