Recent Review: The crew sodded our back yard first and then did a patio for us. The work was done in a timely fashion. Hector, who organized the job, was professional and did what they said they were going to do. My only quibble was that they didn't put enough gravel between the patio stones. And also got some of the gravel on the new sod, which killed a little bit of it, but that was fairly minor. Overall, I would recommend these guys.

Business Description: Robert F. Schwake began delivering stones in 1946, and with that first delivery, a tradition of quality, service and satisfaction was set into motion that we still value today - almost 70 years later. As the company grew and our reputation expanded, we began receiving requests for a more diversified product selection. In the 1960s we acquired additional yard space to accommodate more stone products, and the addition of saws to custom cut limestone on-site.
Today that tradition of excellence continues. With a combined total of well over 200 years of experience in the industry, our employees bring expert knowledge and experience to every customer. Our Mundelein, Illinois location has a 20,000 square feet indoor showroom and a paved 7 acre outside display yard featuring over 100 varieties of building stone, 40 types of landscaping gravel and sand, landscape boulders, outcroppings, flagstone, marble and granite. While we have expanded our product offerings and services over the years, one thing that hasn't changed is our commitment to quality, service and satisfaction.
One of largest expansion areas is our fireplace department. We carry a huge selection of indoor and outdoor fireplaces - wood-burning and gas-burning types in numerous configurations. We have over 30 fireplaces on display and all are fully functional so they can be seen in operation live in our showroom. We also carry a large assortment of fireplace accessories from doors, screens, brushes & stokers to various types of media such as fire glass and our newest introduction - a natural volcanic rock product for uses in fireplaces and fire pits.

Paula Vermett was our main contact at Choice Cut Landscaping. She quickly dialed into our modern aesthetic and provided us with design solutions above and beyond what we had imagined. She supervised a team of amazing guys who treated our project with great care. They all worked so hard to get everything perfectly lined up exactly how we wanted. Paula was very present, and reachable throughout the duration of the project, seeing everything through to the very last detail. Her skills as a designer are impressive too, she took a nasty old shrub and turned it into a bonsai work of art. It’s now my favorite thing in our entire backyard! Overall, it was a great experience and we're very happy with the results.

AOLD WORLD BRICK PAVING
The work was done in 1 day, and everything turned out great. The new dirt and gravel are compacted so well that they are as stable as the adjacent undisturbed ground. Based on my professional experience, they gave this small residential project the same level of quality and care you would expect on a large scale public or commercial project.

It went well, we told them the square footage of our yard and they were able to tell us how much gravel to get. It was the perfect amount. They also were able to perfectly match a gravel sample we brought in. The delivery went smoothly.

AEMERALD BLOOM LANDSCAPING
Excellent! Frank, Jennifer and team were great to partner with from project scoping, timeliness, responsiveness, and follow up to wrap up remaining details. The crew was on time, clean, and worked hard to complete the work in 1.5 days! Would recommend for anyone.

Great job. Timely. Installed borders first to hold pea gravel in place. Held up over the winter and spring.

Ann's team was great. She is on site with her crew, which means you can ask her questions right there and she's making sure everything goes as you requested it. The final product was beautiful and they completed it all in less than a day.

AMANCERA BROTHERS LANDSCAPING
The work was completed in two stages: gravel then planting. I was extremely pleased with the quality and value of both phases. Spreading the gravel was not easy work (under a deck and in-between two row houses, too narrow for wheel barrel). Mancera's crew did not skimp on the gravel, laying down a thick layer all around. The sodding and mulching all went very well. The soil was grated aways from the foundation and the sod and plants were of high quality. Given the labor and cost of the materials, I feel as though I got a terrific value.

David Douglas was great. Professional from beginning to end. Everything was done exactly as planned. In fact they even came in under estimate for part of the work! They also arranged for gravel subcontractor to finish our gravel drive. Not the cheapest company out there, but I do believe that they are one of the best. You really get what you pay for!
