Evanston Landscaping Specialists

When you need the best landscaping services available in Evanston, you need Daybreaker Landscapes. We’ve been providing top-quality outdoor services throughout the Chicago area since 2010.

Everyone wants their property to look its best, but not everyone has the time, the ability, or the know-how to make the outside of their house look as bright and inviting as the inside. Regular upkeep is hard for the average family with kids, jobs, and lives to manage.

Luckily, you don’t have to manage your own outdoor areas anymore. The outstanding team at Daybreaker Landscapes is standing by to design the features you want, maintain the grounds that you already have, and offer regular services to keep your property looking just the way you want it.

Residential Services

Keeping your home looking as you intend it to takes a lot of people in the right place at the right time. To help you out, Daybreaker Landscapes and our team of designers and maintenance crews offer these residential services:

  • Landscaping. Landscape design involves more than just planting trees and bushes or placing a wall. For a successful design to work, the plan must take into consideration the slope of the property, natural drainage, insect and animal activity, and much more. If you want your new plants blooming in the right season, they need to be planted at the right time and in the right light. Our experts can give you all the best advice for a yard that looks lovely year-round.
  • Hardscaping. Otherwise known as decks, patios, paths, and fountains, “hardscaping” is any area not covered in plants or grass. As with the landscaping, your hardscape must be designed to fit with the natural slope of the ground, where the water runs and pools, and where you want other features to fit. Elements like bricks or stone paths must be lined to prevent weeds from coming up through the paving and destroying the path. We will design your hardscape to compliment the rest of your yard.
  • Outdoor kitchens and living rooms. The old backyard barbecue has been replaced with a full kitchen and sitting area. Why carry food in and out of the house for backyard parties when you can just cook right out on the patio itself? Designing and building an outdoor kitchen for maximum comfort and convenience takes planning. It isn’t for the weekend DIY-er. Part landscape, part hardscape, and part interior design, Daybreaker Landscapes is already prepared to make the outdoor room of your dreams.
  • Drainage and gutter management. Keeping your property free of excess water is essential. Too much water means seepage into the foundation of the house, undermining of your pipes, and root rot in your plants. Badly placed gutters and downspouts can make the problem worse by directing runoff from the roof into low-lying areas of the property. We will do careful surveys of the property to ensure drains are located in the right places, and that gutters and downspouts guide runoff to the proper locations.
  • Snow and leaf removal. We get it. You’re busy and there are only so many hours in a day. Or perhaps you’re older and just can’t get out and clear a driveway with a snowblower like you used to. Daybreaker Landscapes’s dedicated teams understand that, and we’re here to help you with those daily or weekly tasks of keeping your yard, roof, and driveway clear of obstructions during the fall and winter months.

Commercial Services

If you own or maintain a commercial property, you have all the same issues as a residential owner regarding property appearance and upkeep, only they’re bigger and more complicated. Whether you have a one-person office or handle a multi-business structure, you need someone to help you make the exterior of your business location stand out from the background.

Commercial landscape and hardscape need to be designed not only with appearance and convenience in mind but with the needs of the business or commercial property as well. Landscaping needs to be designed around existing building features and conform to official codes and regulations. Hardscape must allow for parking requirements like handicapped spaces, regulations regarding the width of walkways and railings, and more.

Daybreaker Landscapes and our team can guide you through these difficulties and create a lovely building with the features you want, without compromising any safety or legal requirements. If you are looking for a new exterior or improvements to an existing façade, Daybreaker Landscapes is here to help you.

Commercial Maintenance Services

During the winter, a parking lot full of snow means a store empty of customers. We provide commercial contracts with monthly or annual renewals, on a per-inch (better for heavy snowfall winters) or per-push (good for mild winters) basis.

We also offer ice removal and roof clearance, which is important in heavy winters when ice accumulation on pipes and gutters can cause property damage or worse as the icicles fall to the ground.

We also provide mowing, leaf removal, mulch delivery and spreading, and outdoor lighting design and placement services, both for commercial and residential properties. Whatever it is that you need for your exteriors, our team can help make it happen.

Who We Are

Our founder and owner Jeff Rausch started Daybreaker Landscapes in 2010 with a Ford F250 and money saved from four years’ service with the U.S. Air Force. Soon he had mowers, trailers, and certifications from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute (ICPI). Today we provide landscaping and yard maintenance services to cities throughout the greater Chicago Metro area, including Evanston.

You’ve worked hard to make your home and property something to be proud of. Your commercial property needs to reflect not just you but everyone inside. You need a team like Daybreaker Landscapes to design the exterior and help you keep it looking as beautiful as the day it was designed.
