Oak Inspired Complete

Oak Inspired Complete are habitat gardens

We serve Northeast Illinois, Southeast Wisconsin, and Northern Indiana.

Our Oak Inspired Complete landscapes and gardens are based in the native ecology of our region, and designed to be an amenity that supports birds, bees, and butterflies.

We install your native oak tree and its companion plants and soil life based on how we would find then together in Nature. Typically, this type of planting will be modelled on a Native Oak Savanna.

We plant our Oak Inspired Complete garden companion plantings dense. We do like Nature – we cover the soil with plants, and we don’t leave much room for the weeds to take hold.

We offer a warranty and stewardship gardening packages to serve your investment over time.

We provide you written guidance for the long-term ecological stewardship of your Oak Inspired Savanna Garden into the future.

We are committed to helping keep your investment thriving.

All plants are native and typically local ecotypes.

Expansion Plantings

Over time, as your trees grow, the area around your trees and the tree roots expands. We like to expand the Companion Plantings every few years to accommodate this growth. When we do the initial plantings, we do them with a long-term plan in mind, so when it is year 3, 5, 7, 9, etc, we can assist with expansion accordingly.
