McGinty Family Promise
Over 60 years ago, deep in the heart of Long Grove, Illinois, McGinty Bros., Inc. put down its roots in the lawn care and landscaping business. Right from the beginning, this local business set its goals on excellence. Excellent service. Excellent lawn and tree care. Instead of spreading its branches wide and far, like some landscaping businesses do, McGinty Bros. stayed close to home, growing in experience, but keeping its family values. Although the founder of McGinty Bros., Mr. Charles P. McGinty, has passed on, his son Brian now leads with the same drive and commitment as his father. Still reaching for excellence. Still giving the best customer service in the greater Chicago area.
McGinty Bros., Inc. handles natural restoration projects, such as:
- mulch blowing
- prairie restoration
- wetlands mitigations
- prescribed burning
- rain gardens and bio-swales
- soil erosion and sediment control.
Over the years, McGinty Bros. has perfected the art of lawn care, offering a 5-Step Lawn Care Program with a weed-free guarantee. Call office for additional details.
McGinty Bros also offers services for the following:
- residential land
- commercial property
- governmental/municipal property
- and other landscaping contractors
Since the beginning, McGinty Bros. believed in hiring professional landscapers who cared deeply for the environment. Today, employees of McGinty Bros. are still knowledgeable and experienced. Many have specific licenses or degrees in their fields. We have quite a few more people on staff today than we did 60 years ago, but that hasn't affected the quality of our customer service.
McGinty Bros., Inc. began as a family owned and operated business, and it still is in the family. In fact, all our clients are treated like family. We give every landscape individualized care, which makes us very different from the bigger national lawn care companies. See The McGinty Difference for more information about that.
We'd like you to meet some of our team, beginning with the President of the company.
Brian T. McGinty – President
As head honcho, Brian continues to advance McGinty Bros., Inc. into the future. He oversees the company's day-to-day operations, and he also personally oversees the Mulch Blowing Division. With a quarter decade of industry experience under his belt, Brian's ambitions to take his love for plant and tree care to the professional level is well underway. What does the President think about his own business? He says, "There is a comfortable and homespun feel when people deal with our company, and we embody the sentiment 'big enough to do it right, small enough to care.'" That sounds about right, Brian!
Brian Wilson – Vice President
VP Brian Wilson, oversees the Restoration and Erosion Control Division. He manages a variety of natural areas projects, such as woodland, wetland, prairie, and shoreline projects. A true leader, Brian guides a team of 55 skilled employees and supervises over 200 projects. Want to know his greatest strength?

His long and outstanding career brought him through many important projects, including the stream bank stabilization on Salt Creek through Wood Dale and Elk Grove Village.

Charles P. McGinty established the company in 1955 with the goal of providing his clients with the very best in lawn and tree services. Mr. McGinty took great pride in investigating and adopting up-to-the-minute changes in equipment and execution, and he kept his staff fully educated and informed. During his 55-year tenure, Mr. McGinty had his hands in every facet of his company, from tree trimming to hydroseeding to sales and management.
