Illinois Yard Transformation

Neil and Susan Locke's huge backyard in the suburbs of Chicago was a perfect place for their three daughters to play as children. But now the Lockes are ready for their landscape to become a place where they can relax and entertain friends.

A Room With a View

The Lockes' new landscape includes a walkway to the garage's side door plus a small, formal garden tucked away on the opposite side of the house, under Susan's office space. Now, her workday windows overlook a secluded area planted with ornamental grasses, peppers and pansies.
