Parterre Urban Landscape Design specializes in residential landscape design in a “City Neighborhood” environment. With a focus on small urban spaces, Parterre is the culmination of years of work and training by its founder and Principal Designer, Alison Gershon. Alison’s combined studies at Harrington School of Design and The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Regenstein School have armed her with the ability to bring wide-scale landscape concepts into small urban spaces, like a Lincoln Park front yard or a South Loop patio. Our objective is to create the ideal outdoor solution to suit each client's vision. Our design consultation includes landscape, hardscape, and lighting schemes, from concept stage all the way through coordinating the installation team.
