About

Markus Specimen Trees, Inc. was founded in 2004 by Brent Markus and operates in the Chicago and Boston areas. Brent has designed and installed gardens from small renewals to large new landscapes. Plant selection for difficult or unusual sites is one of our specialties. In addition to suburban landscapes, our strengths include balcony and rooftop gardens. A diverse palate of plant materials, both woody and herbaceous, are used to create year-round visual interest in the landscape. Our combinations of dwarf conifers and Japanese maples along with ornamental grasses and flowering plants create a low-maintenance landscape.
