Heidekat Design, founded in 1998 by Mindy Heidekat, is a boutique landscape design firm serving Chicago’s North Shore.

Mindy’s experience in the design field and her lifelong love of gardening is evident in her work. Growing up roaming the hills of rural Pennsylvania, gathering wildflowers with her grandmother, she began her horticultural journey. A degree in product design from Carnegie Mellon University honed her three dimensional design skills and approach to problem solving. With a Certificate of Merit in Ornamental Plant Materials from the School of the Chicago Botanic Garden, Mindy changed her palette from plastics to plants.

Each HDI landscape project presents an opportunity to create a unique environment that reflects the homeowner’s lifestyle and honors the architectural integrity of their home. HDI’s goal is for you to find joy in your garden.
