North Shore Classic
We are proud and honored to announce that Chalet received the most prestigious Judges’ Award at the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) in 2021. Chalet has now taken on the national stage by winning this most acclaimed award, bestowed upon us by our peers all around the country.
Chalet’s team designed and implemented the landscape renovation of this Wilmette home and after completion a customized landscape management plan was put into action. The landscape consists of twenty five mature trees such as Ash, American Elm, and Crabapples. Large planting beds filled with Annabelle Hydrangea, Wolf’s Eye Dogwood, and Pixie Meadowbrite Coneflower border the property. A granite cobble driveway welcomes guests to the front of the home and a large bluestone patio provides ample space for entertaining. Weekly visits by an experienced management crew ensure the lasting beauty of the landscape. Careful attention is paid to bed edging, weeding, and trimming all done by hand. The bluestone patios are swept clean each week. Every other year, mason sand is swept into the joints to extend the life of the patio. Window boxes on the front of the home, as well as pedestal containers are planted seasonally to bring continuous color to the landscape. The mature trees on the property are trimmed annually and an extensive regime of fertilization and preventative care applications ensure the trees will be healthy for the future. The organic turf care program keeps the lawn healthy throughout the year. Slow release organic fertilizers and leaf compost are applied to the planting beds annually. Careful attention to detail paired with sustainable care practices ensure the client’s property will be beautiful for the life of the landscape.
