Landscape Concepts Management began in 1981 in a very small garage in Libertyville, Illinois as a construction and landscape management operation. From these humble beginnings, the company worked to establish a reputation and soon launched a partnership with a major developer in the Chicago Metropolitan area called Cambridge Homes.
