“We are a one-stop shop,” says Mark King, president of King’s Landscaping, who took over the company from his father more than 30 years ago. “We offer everything from comprehensive master plans, 3-D imaging, construction, and installation.” The business has changed quite a bit since King’s Landscaping first started serving Hinsdale and the surrounding areas in 1959, but the company has always been known for its commitment to its customers.“You work with one person throughout an entire project,” King says. “We start with the design, facilitate construction and install, and even sell furniture. One phone call starts the entire process.” One of the major shifts in landscape architecture and design is the evolution of the backyard as an extension of a home’s interior. “Landscape has become more about functionality,” King says. “In the past, it was utilitarian in design, and now the outdoor renovations are second only to kitchen renovations. Homeowners really want to extend their outdoor usage season, and we try to stay on top of new trends,” Thirty years ago, brick pavers were innovative, for example. Now the trend is toward a wide variety of natural stones from around the world. Outdoor grills used to be a luxury; now outdoor kitchens are common. To keep it cool, outdoor living spaces now have lots of options for shade and privacy, and fire features keep things warm during the spring and fall. Plus, the company has an unparalleled expertise in planting—adding color and trees to create privacy and interest. “Hinsdaleans see the value in quality workmanship and materials,” King says. “They see that landscaping is an investment in their homes and they genuinely appreciate creative designs and uniqueness.” And that’s what King’s Landscaping always tries to provide: exclusive designs known for their quality and consistency. “We offer warranties on all of our work. We stand by our process and believe in the quality that our employees provide from start to finish. The beauty of this town is a priority,” King adds. “Some homeowners want tranquility, others want to entertain, while others want both. It is actually fun to facilitate a dream.”
