Jane Dilworth & Associates was founded in 1974 in Chicago’s Western Suburbs by Principal, Jane Dilworth. Jane began her firm by working independently out of Darien, and then later, as the company grew, moved operations to our current location in Downers Grove. Even in the early years Jane has preferred to keep the company relatively small to make it possible to retain the personal touch that is our trademark. Over the years Jane Dilworth has drawn from natures’ profound subtleties to create exceptional gardens and landscapes that recognize modern-day society’s need to interact with nature. Our continuing passion for connecting people to nature has enabled us to evolve into the successful design and installation firm we are today.

Our company, led by Jane Dilworth, is comprised of a team of dedicated individuals. Our landscape designers, office staff and crew members are passionate about their work and every phase of landscape design and implementation process. In addition to receiving excellent craftsmanship and sensitive designs, clients appreciate the unsurpassed personal attention we give throughout every step of their project.
