Facts

As a leader in sustainable, green landscaping, Jeff Sebert has designed the headquarters of Sebert Landscaping as a stunning example of environmentally-conscious building. The 14,000 square foot office that sits on seven acres in Bartlett is LEED certified, and it has a number of unique features that contribute to its eco-friendly appeal.

Solar panels

To harness energy directly from the most abundant nearby source, the shop building is capped with solar panels that supply about one third of the total electricity used in the headquarters building.

Reclaimed wood construction

The wood used to construct the prairie-style corporate office came from a surprising location—the bottom of Lake Superior. Logs were left behind from the 19th century Great Lakes logging industry, and they have been repurposed by Sebert Landscaping as wood paneling, doors, conference tables, and counters.

Eco-experiments

In order to stay on the cutting edge of green technologies and fully achieve the sustainability goals set by Jeff Sebert, the headquarters feature landscaping experiments that may pave the way for future projects. One large example is the dry creek turned stepped water feature that harnesses rainwater and repurposes it in irrigation throughout the property.

Green roofing

Live roofing provides insulation while bringing new life to the area. The 6,500 square foot roof is lined with reclaimed wood decking that surrounds grasses, sedum and allium.
