Roy Diblik has no horticulture degree. He is not a landscape architect. He grew up in Berwyn, where yards were tiny patches of turf for playing baseball.

If you have been to the Art Institute of Chicago this summer and strolled by the Louis Sullivan Stock Exchange Arch, you’ve seen how he puts plants together. If you’ve gambled at the Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin, you’ve seen a site where he combines native plants in a stylized way.
