In business since 1976, Green-Up has grown from a small, family-owned and operated business in the western suburbs of Chicago and eventually entered into the business of installing recreational playground equipment and site furnishings in 1982.  Green-Up  became certified installers known for quality work and attention to detail as it rose to become the premier installer of Playground Equipment in the Chicago-land Area that it is today.

Today, Green-Up has more than Thirty Five years of quality installation experience in the playground and recreational spaces industry.
