Serving Your Community
Since 1982 it has been the mission of The Tommy Pollina Landscape Company to solve the landscape problems that both businesses and residences experience. Our services are very diverse and are designed to both beautify and solve problems in a way that make your landscape functional.
As our climate changes your property will experience water drainage, vegetation and temperature problems. Within this website you can read about how we create solutions to these problems.
Problem: We have water drainage problems in our yard because water pools in various locations on our property after it rains.
Solution: As one of Chicago’s premiere yard drainage companies Tommy Pollina Landscape Company, Inc. will provide you with landscaping drainage ideas that actually work. Water management on any property is essential to not only protect your house from water seepage but also your vegetation from root rot. [see Drainage page]
Problem: When I look at my house - I think both the trees and shrubs could look better.
Solution: Trees and shrubs add color, beauty and shade to your property and can define your property lines. However if positioned and nurtured incorrectly they may create long-term problems for your property. Allow Tommy Pollina Landscape Company, Inc. to properly adjust your landscape using the vegetation you already have and you will have a property that everyone will enjoy looking at.
Problem: All the plants in my landscape beds do not seem as perky and vibrant anymore.
Solution: Often this is caused by 3 problems happening simultaneously: (1) increasing temperatures which accelerates the evaporation of water; (2) the dirt lacking nutrients; and (3) weeds. Correctly applying a particular kind of Mulch as a ground cover will not only enhance the beauty of your landscape beds, but also reduce weed growth in your flower beds and provide moisture for the plants it surrounds, solving the problem of water evaporation as temperatures rise.
Problem: Sump pump discharge is causing water to accumulate on our landscape and sometimes causes water seepage in our basement.
Solution: Sump pump discharge management can sometimes be a bit tricky. There are 3 major problems that Tommy Pollina Landscape Company, Inc. are often called in to solve:
(1) we seem to be getting foundation water seepage. Often this happens because the sump drains too close to foundation. The solution for this problem involves readjusting the landscape and the sump’s drainage system;
(2) the sump pump seems to be working very hard every time it rains. This problem usually happens because the sump drains too close to your house so the sump pump keeps recycling the same water it keeps discharging. The solution for this problem often entails adjusting the sump’s discharge process and the adjacent landscape;
(3) the sump pump seems to work differently in different weather, especially when it is cold outside. The solution for this problem is to evaluate if the sump pump is using incorrect discharge mechanisms. Often, in the cold weather, water will freeze in the discharge mechanisms. Ultimately this causes the sump to burn out and often causes water buildup in your basement. Tommy Pollina Landscape Company, Inc. can provide many types of solutions to solve sump pump discharge water buildup on your property and around your house.
