About my Company

I was born in Frankfort, IL and founded Bertrand Landscape Design in 1989. I studied Botany at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL and Environmental Biology for my post-graduate studies at Governors State University in University Park, IL. My life’s work in landscaping has been widely published and has recognized many awards.

Our designs integrate your wishlist while maximizing efficiency and value. It is a privilege to create landscapes that awaken your senses, inspire your imagination and expand your consciousness of your outdoor space.

I look forward to meeting you and enhancing the most important place in the world…your home.

Thank you for visiting!!!

Hi Jim, Wanted to tell you that we had our party Saturday evening and everyone raved about the landscaping, and especially the fireplace. Randy started a fire in it, and he and some of the guys sat around there for a long while. After everyone left, he and I sat out there. It was getting cool outside, but sitting there was PERFECT.

Everything your crew has done has exceeded our expectations. The build methods are all first rate. The guys are very clean and courteous.We really enjoy the professionalism.

Thanks, We are very happy that we went ahead with your company on this big project.

Hi Jim,

I can’t express how wonderful my yard is and how much I am enjoying sitting out by the fire. I am enjoying the moon and the stars, the beautiful night skies, the peace.

Thanks again for all of your guidance. I never spent so much time outdoors in the yard!
Happy Summer!

Hi Jim, I just wanted to let you know how how pleased I am with the outcome of our yard project. The yard feels like home now. It is a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by nature and I am excited to use the space, especially the fire pit. I love the variety of plantings and am looking forward to watching it all grow in the coming season. John was a very professional, knowledgeable and attentive project manager, as well as a just a real nice guy. Your crew kept the mess to a minimum and always cleaned up at the end of the day. Your company provides great service and I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to undertake a yard project.

We have been outside every night since the project was completed. It is going to make such a difference in our lives. Being outside with nature is something I wish for everyone.
