Happy Bee Garden Service

Offers experienced garden labor for complex gardens.  Brendon, the owner, has 18+ years of gardening experience.  He is a military veteran, former land surveyor and became an Illinois Master Gardener in 2015.  He has worked for the Cook County (IL) University of Illinois Extension office overseeing Master Gardener projects, managed a non-profit community food hoop house garden in Chicago, managed and assistant managed the 61st Street farmer’s market in Chicago, serviced well over 50 private home gardens, managed property for the Keweenaw Land Trust, owns and operates Keweenaw Apothecary (which makes and sells tinctures of herbs and mushrooms), and teaches foraging and outdoor skills classes.  

Happy Bee also offers skilled handy-person work such as carpentry, paver patio repair and other household repair work. Small jobs only.  

Happy Bee Garden Service is not a typical Landscaping company.  Happy Bee does NOT do lawn work or mowing and does NOT apply herbicides or pesticides under any circumstances.  Happy Bee doesn’t typically do garden design work because they usually specialize in maintenance of existing gardens and landscapes.  

Brendon and the gardening service moved to the Keweenaw in 2020.  Brendon can be reached at 312-428-8061 or Email [email protected] . Here’s a link to the business Facebook page
