Making lawns healthy and beautiful since 1994
We started our lawn care business in Wheaton back in 1994 and homeowners in Glen Ellyn quickly were included in our service area. At that time many were simply getting chemical lawn care done because it was more common and a bit cheaper to have done. Soon homeowners in Naperville became interested in having a beautiful and healthy lawn so it was a natural decision to offer organic lawn care to homeowners in Naperville. Now we have more lawns in Naperville than any other town we service. I"m not sure why those living in Naperville are more interested in organic lawn care but it's interesting to me and we like it. Maybe it's because many homeowners see our signs we place in the lawns we service while they are walking around town? Maybe more people living in Naperville are conscious of living a healthy life and how it directly affects their kids and pets? Maybe it's because people are using social media to spread the word about the dangers of chemical fertilizers and pesticides? Maybe it's because the city officials are open to a different safer way of taking care of the public areas where the residents hang out with their families. I know that last year one of their parks held an event challenging residents to have a dandelion pulling contest. The Naperville Park District, Non-Toxic Naperville, and the Midwest Pesticide Action Center help a Dandelion Pull at Knoch Park in Naperville. For the hourlong event about 20 volunteers with trowels and Trader Joe's bags removed about 122 pounds of the yellow flowering weeds from the park and playground.
Naperville Illinois is a city in both DuPage county and Will County. It's a suburb about 28 miles west of of Chicago and was founded in 1831. Naperville has grown to be the fifth largest city in Illinois and in 2017 the population was recorded as 147,682... it makes sense that many want organic lawn care.
The Naper Settlement is an outdoor museum showcasing the areas history as a 19th century pioneer outpost. It's set up like a cute little town just as it may have looked many years ago. There are often volunteers dressed appropriately to show visitors what the daily life would have been like in Naperville as the city was new. They hold many events at the Naper Settlement throughout the year inviting people from in and around Naperville to enjoy a piece of history mixed with todays current way of life. There are stores set up, schools, barns, a blacksmith, post office, original homes and a museum... you can spend an hour there or all day depending on how much it interests you and your family.
Another fun place in Naperville to enjoy is the Naperville Riverwalk. Considered the "crown jewel" of Naperville, the Riverwalk is a place of beauty and tranquility along the West Branch of the DuPage River. It features 1.75 miles of brick walkways, fountains, bridges, meeting and event places, outdoor sculpture and artwork and memorials. The Riverwalk has something for everyone.
Another interesting piece of Naperville is the Millenium Carillon located at 443 Aurora Avenue. It rests at the base of the Riverwalks Rotary Hill and is a unique, 16 story structure with a 72 bell musical instrument. It was a gift, given to the Naperville community to commemorate the dawn of the New Millennium. Visitors can climb the 253 steps to the top of the tower an a guided tour and enjoy the spectacular view on a clear day the Chicago Skyline can be seen.
