About Max's Greener Places
From an early age, Ed has been devoted to the study of plants. He truly enjoys working with them. Even after a long day as a landscaper, he still finds time for his own gardens were he recreates small scenes from the natural world he cares for so deeply. His long study has granted him expert knowledge about the flora, native and invasive, of the Northern Illinois area. Ed has received certification in the Naturalist program at Morton Arboretum. He has lent his skills to programs of both the Audubon Society and the Sierra Club. He continues to act as docent on nature excursions for a variety of groups, including people with special needs.
Ed has well over thirty years experience as a landscaper with roughly twenty-three years running his own firm. This too has gained him the skill set needed to make every job a success. He has seen what works and what doesn't. He knows how landscape materials behave in various settings. He has developed a good eye choosing stock. He has become quite able at crew selection, training and management. Ed knows how to produce installations that deliver on a well designed plan.
