Backyard Escape in North Barrington, IL

I worked with Rob Baughman at Barn Nursery.  He created a beautiful design for our entire backyard. He really listened to my ideas and what I liked and didn't like. I love all of the plants and the variety of color that he chose.  It looks tremendous and they did a great job.  I've even contacted him afterward with follow up questions and additions and he continues to impress me. I highly recommend Barn Nursery and Rob to do your design.

Brooke ZLake in the Hills

The Barn installed a massive hardscape and landscape project in the fall and we couldn't be happier with the results. As promised by the "Family-owned" style displayed on the website, we found each team member from top to bottom to be equally courteous, professional, hard-working and totally accessible. It was a joy to work so closely with real people, instead of just an impersonal "company," and our yard is now the talk of the neighborhood! Not only would I recommend them wholeheartedly, I will hire them again for all further landscape needs.

Patty K.Barrington Hills

Rob and Tom worked closely with us the entire way, truly listening to our likes and dislikes. They worked within our budget and we have a more finished and truly beautiful yard now. They completed as they said they would and were professionals that I would recommend to anyone. They use quality plants and materials that have really enhanced the value of my house.
