Quality Landscape Design
Decades of Experience. A good landscape design begins with an experienced designer. A designer that understands the wants of the customer and the needs of the location. Our designers have decades of experience and have designed thousands of plans for residential and commercial locations around Central Illinois. Doug Heim and Peter Haydel both have degrees in Landscape Architecture from the University of Illinois and Donna Cultra has been designing landscapes since 1991. They have the experience and the training necessary to choose plants that are appropriate for a given project.
Our design team and installation crew takes the same pride in projects as small as a courtyard to an entire estate complete with walls, patios, and plant installation. Country Arbors has one installation team which keeps our quality at professional levels for each and every job. Our crew of Willie, Robert, and Hillarion have been together for 17 years and are masters of their trade. Ensuring that no matter the scope of your landscape project, it will be installed professionally and efficiently.
We look forward to discussing any upcoming landscape requirements which you may have. If you would like more information on our company contact or e-mail us.
Locally Sourced Plants
A great design is only great if the final planting includes quality plants. Instead of telling you what plant will be installed, we can show you. Our designers use product located on our lot in Urbana. All our perennials and annuals are grown right here in one of our 30 greenhouses. We have over 100 acres of growing ground where we grow many of our trees and shrubs. We can show you the exact plant that will be going in your yard and in most cases you can go out on the yard and tag it.
Commercial & Residential Landscaping
Country Arbors specializes in residential landscaping, especially re-landscaping. While we do design and install many new landscapes, most of our work is in taking an old tired landscape and turning it into a modern landscape. A landscape with healthy, properly spaced plants, new edging, and stable stone and patio work. While there is no such thing as a no maintenance landscape, our designers can help provide you with a low maintenance landscape that has professionally chosen plants that will grow to the designed space and thrive in the given conditions.
We also provide commercial landscape design and installation. If your company is looking for a commercials landscape in Champaign, Urbana, Savoy, Mahomet or the surrounding communities, we appreciate the opportunity to work with you.
Walls, Patios & Ponds
A nice landscape has division, movement, and open personal areas and Country Arbors’ team has been installing them for decades. We offer choices of natural stone or concrete brick and wall block. Both installations will be the centerpiece of your landscape and will be around for generations to come.
Our team specializes in the use of stone materials. Stone is one of the oldest building materials available and blends in well to the landscape. Our crew has been installing walls and patios for nearly two decades and offer some of the finest craftsmanship in the area. Hardscapes that are both beautiful and functional.
Country Arbors has a stone and brick yard that enables us to use a wide selection of different building material. It also enables you to see what the material looks like in advance of your project. Contact us for a quote.
One crew. Country Arbors uses one crew to install all of our landscapes. There is no B team at Country Arbors. Our crew has worked together 17 years installing plants, patios, walls and ponds. All led by Willie the foreman who has been with us for 22 years. It would be hard for you to find a more experienced landscape crew in all of Central Illinois. But a crew is only as good as the design.
Donna Cultra has been an owner and a designer at Country Arbors for 25 years. She takes pride in using her knowledge and experience to provide her customers with a landscape that is designed to thrive. Country Arbors design team consists of Donna Cultra, Doug Heim, and Peter Haydel. Peter and Doug both are graduates of the University of Illinois School of Landscape Architecture. Peter has over a decade of experience designing Residential and Commercial landscapes in Champaign Urbana. Doug has been designing with Country Arbors for 3 years.
