Care

Can We Help Your Garden Grow?

Stuck in the Weeds? Literally?

Want to get to work but don’t have enough hands to get the job done?

Maybe life has thrown a curveball and your beautiful garden is just not getting the time and attention it was used to?

Want to overhaul the garden in way that you can keep track of and be involved with?

We hear you.

All the Advice and Consultations won’t get the work done, and sometimes a garden can feel like a lot of work!

Vivant Care Plans

Our Care Team is here to get “stuck in” with you on your garden projects, whether it’s a one-time workday or ongoing visits through the year. And unlike your standard landscaping company, you are welcome to join us and learn from the team on your workdays!

We are not your average “Mow and Blow”. Our small but mighty team does not use gas-powered machinery or a fleet of trucks. Edges and sidewalks will be hand-swept with good old fashioned brooms and elbow grease.

Fall leaves in a garden

We combine nature-inspired design with low maintenance gardening for the busy humans of our modern world. Our garden practices include:

  • Chop and drop trimming 
  • Natural soil amendments
  • Hand weeding 
  • Incorporation of native plants
  • Design/ build of organic edible food gardens
  • Installing lawn alternatives
  • Prioritizing ecological care techniques over chemicals
    • We only use herbicides to spot treat the most invasive plants

With good stewardship, your garden’s needs should decrease overtime.

Just One day

Sometimes even the best of gardens can bury you. If your garden needs a quick rescue and a helping hand this one off appointment is for you!

A two person team will help you tackle those daunting garden to dos.

Relax while we weed, prune (shrubs up to 12 ft), plant, divide perennials, apply mulch or compost, and provide a general plant health assessment.

Prices starting at $600.

Can we keep you?

Organic growth takes time. Vivant is still growing!

We are not your average “Mow and Blow”. Our small but mighty team does not use gas-powered machinery or a fleet of trucks. Edges and sidewalks will be hand-swept with good old fashioned brooms and elbow grease.

We specialize in dense perennials plantings and/or edible landscaping. If you are seeking services like lawn maintenance or tall tree pruning, we can happily refer to you other local companies that specialize in these areas. 

At this time, we are only able to offer in person consults and ongoing garden care to the surrounding Chicago neighborhoods. If you fall outside this service area, take heart! There may be other ways we can help virtually. We encourage you to reach out.
