La Grange Landscape Completely Transformed

“Brian and his team completely transformed our 1950’s-looking landscaping – yews and a lot of weeds – into the envy of the neighborhood. Phase One was the front yard. Phase Two was a smaller job in the backyard. He met with us, gave us several options and price points to work with and took a great deal of interest in the plants and the type of landscaping. We never felt that he had anything but our best interest at hand, and his excellent plans and work product proved this. Brian’s designs were great and his workers were very, very hardworking and professional. When we could reuse plants, Brian did that. All the scrap and waste was completely hauled away. Everything 'synched' with the yard and the neighborhood. Unbelievable job and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. We still can’t believe how good it looks. Thanks!”

—— K. D., La Grange


The Attention to Detail Made the Front Look as if We Spent Twice The Amount

“Outdoor Upgrades transformed our front yard into a fresh and delightfully appealing outdoor space for both our neighbors and ourselves to enjoy. Brian worked with us in the design and execution of a plan that built off of the existing things that we wanted to keep as well as replace all of the things that were beginning to look pretty dated and bedraggled. All of the attention to detail made the front of our home look as though we had spent twice the amount! The only thing I had to ask Brian to do was to drop off additional business cards that people walking past asked for! I would recommend Outdoor Upgrades to anyone who is looking for a fresh look for their front or back yard!”

Brimming with Ideas

“From the start, my experience with Outdoor Upgrades was as refreshing to me as their service was to my landscaping! Brian is an energetic, hands-on owner brimming with ideas. The way the service offerings are structured allows us to collaborate on a solution that matched both my budget and my sense of style. His crews were prompt, efficient, tidy and polite. And, perhaps most importantly, the work was delivered just as discussed! They worked in the time frame that was promised and with no last minute charges. I will use Outdoor Upgrades in the future and will confidently refer them to family and friends.”

A Pleasure to Work With

“For years, I have searched for a good quality landscaper and I’ve finally found one – Outdoor Upgrades. I called them for a spring cleanup and to fix a few beds that needed improvement. Brian Casey at Outdoor Upgrades was a pleasure to work with. Brian has great ideas, a great eye for detail and is extremely knowledgeable, responsive and professional. Brian not only listened to what I wanted but also offered suggestions on how we could improve our landscape. The crew was friendly and respectful and cleaned up after themselves. Outdoor Upgrades uses high-quality plantings and mulch and our yard looks great. Our neighbors complimented us on our yard after Outdoor Upgrades completed their work. I am so glad I finally found a landscaper I can use again and one that I feel comfortable referring to friends and neighbors.”

By Nightfall We Had a Beautifully Renewed Landscape

“We recently completed an 'upgrade/renewal' of our landscape with Outdoor Upgrades. We could not have been more pleased with the professional process and beautiful results. We could tell Brian Casey is very passionate and knowledgeable about his work. He provided innovative ideas using, dividing, and relocating our mature plants to beautify and enhance our property. Brian, Jonathan, and their entire crew were first class. They arrived in the morning and by nightfall we had a beautifully renewed landscape. Without reservation, we highly recommend Outdoor Upgrades. We will definitely be repeat customers.”
