The independently owned and operated business has been shaped through owner Jason Becker's inspiration from nature. Jason was born in Chicago and moved to Winthrop Harbor, Ill., when he was ten. At that time, Winthrop Harbor was rural and non-developed and he experienced the undisturbed outdoors. While living one mile from Lake Michigan and with access to forest preserves in Wadsworth, Ill., and Illinois Beach State Park in Zion, Ill., Jason became energized by these landscapes. He naturally became involved in landscaping and has subsequently pursued a career creating unique outdoor spaces.
