Our Practice

We believe the exterior is just as important. Reveal Design LLC is a full-service landscape design-and-build boutique based in Chicago, Illinois. Established in 2011, our work focuses on creating thoughtfully designed outdoor living spaces that combine style, purpose, and functionality. From intimate garden balconies and full-scale residential landscapes to multi-unit urban complexes looking for outdoor solutions, each project is customized to meet our clients’ individual needs and tastes.

Our Process

We offer initial on-site consultation free of charge. Most of our designs are developed through a two-phase process complete with enhanced visual models and three-dimensional presentations to give our clients a clear picture of the finished product. Phase 1 focuses on the client’s style, desired function, and rough budget. In Phase 2, we refine these details and select plants and materials based on the client’s tastes and maintenance desires. We are client-focused in our objectives and openly discuss all aspects of our projects from inception.

Our History

We started from the ground up. After years of heading design units of high-end suburban and city landscape architecture firms, Sean Kelley began Reveal Design, LLC to cater to client needs without the overhead costs associated with large firms. Our team continues to grow and develop, and we aim to be the best in the business. We’re excited about our future and we invite you to be a part of our creative vision through our collaborative process.
