Schedule a Property Visit

 Now it’s easier than ever for your property  to look great while supporting clean water, rich soil and resilient ecosystems. 

Get the information you need so you can use your time and dollars well when landscaping your yard or managing your larger landscape. Join the large and growing community of people who are teaming up to create eco-friendly properties that are healthy for pets, people, songbirds and butterflies – while retaining the aesthetics they desire. Many people in McHenry County are making significant contributions with help from their local land conservancies.

Spend an hour walking and assessing your property with one of our staff. Let us know if you have a particular issue of concern or an upcoming project of note. You will learn about:

  • Any ecological treasures you might have – and how to protect them.
  • Ways to add native trees, flowers or other plants – beautifully.
  • How to identify and control any invasive species you might have.
  • Eco-friendly lawn care.
  • Water protection and conservation.

We’ll make recommendations for projects that fit your lifestyle and send a follow-up with a summary of them. Just getting started? Simple modifications can go a long way. Does your property qualify for certification? We’re happy to help you with that, too
