Landscape Design & Maintenance Experts in Homer Glen IL
The Leading Landscape Design Build Company in the Chicago-land Area
Owners Kurt and Sharon Marrin met at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Following graduation they both obtained jobs working in the landscape industry. In 1985 Kurt and Sharon married and soon decided it was time to start their own business which is now known as Bret-Mar Landscape. At first, Kurt and Sharon operated out of their home in Mt. Greenwood. After a few jobs were completed, word began to spread about the excellent work and talent of these two young landscape architects. Design and installation took precedence over maintenance and the company continued to grow. In 1996 Kurt and Sharon purchased a farm house with five acres. This is where Bret-Mar still operates today. The farm house has been restored into an office and the five acres has become a great space for display gardens and a nursery.
At Bret-Mar Landscape, we're committed to the ecological health of our community, our country, and the planet.
We practice sustainable growth – meeting the needs of the present without compromising future generation’s ability to meet their own needs. We support growers and suppliers who share our concerns and promise towards ‘green’ solutions to the reduction of greenhouse gas, energy consumption and post consumer waste.
Let’s protect our natural resources together!
