2014 Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association Grand Award Winner – Residential Landscape Management Category
This residence overlooks Lake Michigan in Bay Harbor, Michigan. As our relationship has grown with these clients, our goal has been a constant theme of rich vibrant colors, as well as lush landscaping throughout. The property was laid out with layered tiers throughout, creating useable space and walls of extreme color. With this properties challenging terrain, including grade changes of over 50’ from road to lake level, maintaining such a landscape can be challenging. The clients have given up complete control to us with their landscape, creating a perfect oasis of ‘Blissful Tiers’.

2013 Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association Merit Award Winner – Design & Installation Category
This client contacted our landscape installation division seeking spatial solutions for his property. He was in the process of purchasing the adjacent lot to the east of his current home and wanted to alleviate parking issues for large family retreats and also create useable outdoor areas for his grandchildren to use. The client wanted to be able to drive his GEM electric car or Jeep from his home down to Lake Michigan.
This residence has been an opportunity for us to show our love for grade change. No doubt the property will continue to evolve, and we consider ourselves blessed to be part of the team of professionals who have taken an empty lot and sculpted it into a fully-functional, artistic extension of the client’s home and original property.

This residence overlooks The Preserve Golf Course of Bay Harbor and Little Traverse Bay. As our relationship grew with the client, our goal was to create a dog friendly landscape that was rich, colorful and lush. The safety of their two Golden Retrievers is always of the utmost importance regarding their overall landscape design and plant selection. Accents of vibrant colors in annual plantings and rich texture in perennial plant material enhance the property’s ‘Golden View’.
“Summer Color Explosion”
2012 Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association Grand Award Winner – Landscape Management Category
This residence overlooks the Yacht Club and Bay Harbor Lake in Northern Michigan. As our relationship has grown with our client, his desire for bursts of color in all areas of his property has remained consistent. To achieve his vision, many varieties of annual flowers were installed in combination with seasonal perennials to maximize color and texture. In addition, we provide all inclusive maintenance services for the entire exterior of his property. With his recent passing, we have been entrusted to carry on his vision of a healthy, vibrant landscape.
“Hobbit House on Park”
2012 Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association Merit Award Winner – Landscape Installation Category
Our client purchased this 1950’s Earl Young residence in 2008 for a guesthouse to their main residence on an adjacent property. Our client’s vision was to make the entire lawn and landscape area into a park. There are many mature hardwood trees on the property, which we needed to pay particular attention to as we graded the land to complete his vision.
Overall, this project highlights bringing history together with modern-day design. Five years after our initial installation, all mature trees remain healthy and robust. As our landscape has aged and weathered, it is increasingly difficult to tell what walls and patio surfaces are original. It was a privilege to be part of such a history-rich, detail-oriented project.
