Agnes Stafford and Pradel Garden Designs have transformed our garden and deck into beautiful green spaces. Their creativity and visual aesthetic are unique. Moreover, they are collaborative and will work with customers to establish a realistic budget for the work to be performed. Over the years, Agnes has designed and planted our garden in anticipation of the Old Town Art Fair Garden Walk. We have received many compliments as a result of Agnes’ work. We enthusiastically recommend Pradel Garden Designs and hope to see more of their magnificent gardens throughout Chicago!!!

Through my collaboration with Agnes to stock our high school greenhouse, it was very clear that she is extremely knowledgeable about all types of plants and enjoys what she does. When I used Pradel Garden Designs to landscape our condo building’s parkway, she honored our budget and wishes and did not surprise us with any surcharges or plants we did not want. I would definitely recommend Pradel Garden Designs. Our parkway turned out beautifully.

Agnes of Pradel Garden Designs is wonderful to work with. The seasonal containers Pradel Garden Designs does for my clients are a true work of art. The attention to detail shows in every project Pradel Garden Design completes for my clients. I highly recommend this company for all your landscaping needs.

The 2144 Lincoln Park Condo Association has been a client of Agnes Stafford and now Pradel Garden Designs for over four years. We are totally satisfied with how her designs compliment the building facade and beautifully fit the available planting space and budget.

I started working with Agnes a couple years ago on a project at one of our large apartment buildings in Lincoln Park. We needed somebody creative who could think outside the box. She had ideas we would have never thought of and the result was the talk of the neighborhood. I immediately had other property managers in the area asking who did our landscaping. She is now designing and overseeing the installations at most of our Chicago properties and I couldn't be happier with the improvement her designs have made for our curb appeal. Not only is she extremely talented at what she does but she is a warm, friendly and funny person...a joy to work with!

In 2008, my wife and I turned our "1950's era" yard over to Agnes Stafford; we talked, she listened and planned. What she gave us has been beyond our expectations. Because she really listened to our needs and planned accordingly, we got a beautiful, lush, low-to-no maintenance corner of paradise on our very small lot. And she did it all within budget! After our project ended, Agnes has stayed in touch -- to answer our questions, to address unforeseen issues, and to keep an eye on her creation. Among the many improvements we have made to our home, Agnes' landscaping ranks as our Number One.
