Plantings / Plants
Plantings, or Plants, are a great way to compliment and complete the look and feel of the space. Once larger elements like walkways, patios, and pergolas are in place, plants can then be brought into the fold. Trees and shrubs are often the main elements that give structure to planted spaces. These are the larger elements that can be evergreen, flowering, used for screening, or just elements that create variety by adding height. Perennials are plants that come back year after year. Perennials typically have a window of time during the season where they flower or look their best and then go into dormancy for the winter season. Whatever plants you choose, they will soften the space and increase your enjoyment of it!

Retaining Walls & Stairs
Retaining walls and/or stairs can help solve a variety of issues with your outdoor spaces. Whether you have issues with water, grade changes, or simply want an additional visual element, retaining walls or stairs can accomplish this. They can create more variety, height, and act as an informal seating space at times. Like patios and walkways, there are a variety of materials available from wood timbers to natural stone. These materials can be used to create raised gardens or seating spaces that complement the rest of your outdoor elements. They can also provide a transition from one space to the next.

Features & Focal Points
Features and focal points are a great way to enhance your outdoor space. Features and focal points are the next step if you already have the basics of patios and planting beds in place. Adding these will create an entertainment spot that elevates your outdoor space. Some ways to do this include adding features or focal points such as an outdoor kitchen, grill unit, gas or wood-burning fire pit, or water feature. These elements can extend your time spent outdoors during cooler weather months. They will also increase the comfort and enjoyment of your space during warm months.

Seasonal rotations include flowering annuals, plants, and decor. All of these are a great way to provide ongoing rotations of color to further enhance the look and feel of your space throughout the changing of seasons. Holidays are an especially popular time to add an extra pop of color to an existing garden area or container. Perennial plants cycle in and out of flower; these plants can be used to decorate your front door, roof deck, patio, vegetable gardens, and beyond. Our team of seasonal rotation designers creates designs with annuals for Chicago businesses, homes, and highrises. Leave it to us at Kemora to find a creative solution to beautify any space!

Carpentry & Structures
Carpentry and structures might be the answer you've been needing for your outdoor space! Especially if you have the basic landscape elements in your yard already but find that you can't really enjoy using them for various reasons. We can create some additional elements to complete and personalize your outdoor space. Wood or metal structures like pergolas can block the sun while also adding an attractive structure to the space. Carpentry encompasses a variety of other projects too. We work with local carpenters to create raised vegetable beds, custom window boxes, privacy screens, and can even rebuild your existing deck or relocate your deck stairs to increase the functionality and usage.
