Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
Antonelli Landscape Pool & Spa
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"Antonelli completed both backyard and front yard landscaping. It included a retaining wall with concrete tile pavers around our pool in the backyard, a paver walkway from the driveway to the backyard, a new front entrance paver patio, new landscaping pavers outlining the front of our home, landscaping stones, and planting of trees along both side yards as well. Jim was extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. His workers were consistently on time and respectful of our property and our neighbors property. Their skillmanship showed through in their work. Any concerns or questions we had, Jim was always able to answer them in a timely manner. I would highly recommend his work to others. It has transformed our home and our backyard into something we never imagined could be possible. His motto is "outdoor impressions" and he truly delivered that."

Great Oaks Landscape Associates Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"I hired Great Oaks to design and install my landscape as soon as they renovated my neighbors property and it sold for 10% more then its asking price. They are so helpful and respectful. They took the time to educate me about what they were planning, installing, the process, and just about landscape architecture in general. I learned so much from them and they created a breathtaking outdoor living space which I use everyday. It made my house something I was proud to show off. I now have friends and family over because they turned my backyard into a entertaining living area which is simply beautiful and I can fit 3 times as many people as I used to be able too. I Never could have imagined a big landscaping company woud care so much about 1 individual homeowner but they really do. They still contact me to make sure it's still as perfect as the day it was installed."

Four Seasons Garden Center & Custom Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"Four Seasons Designer, Dena Serrato, met with me on several occasions at office and my home to envision possibilities for front walk and wall, and complete back yard design and plantings. Once the design was accepted she recommended materials, plantings, etc. All coordinated with views from windows, seasonal color changes, and more. This was a major job including more than 10 trees, dozens of bushes and dozens more perennial plantings plus flagstone patios, brick walls, and brick walks. Excellent service and very customer-oriented. The crew that did the installation was fantastic. Arrived on time daily. Worked without idling. Cleaned thoroughly each day so all public walks and passages on the property were spic and span. Work was completed on time and according to specifications. I have done major landscaping projects at previous homes. My experienced assessment is that Four Seasons Garden Center & Custom Landscape company and all the staff and contractors who worked on this project are First Class."

Daryl Toby - AguaFina Gardens International
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"We hired Daryl Toby and AguaFina to do our landscape architecture in preparation for a wedding we were having at our home. Their staff was friendly and knowledgable and were able to incorporate many of the ideas we were looking for. They also incorporate many of the native plants that we already had on site to cut down on costs. In addition, Daryl treated the project with a meticulous attention to detail and demanded excellence. This was a beautifully implemented project and led to a wonderful June wedding."

Serge van der Voo Landscapes LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"We would like to highly recommend Serge van der Voo Landscapes! We hired Serge and his team to do a completely new landscape and hardscape at our historic home on Ann Arbor's Old West Side. The work was extensive and Serge was very flexible in agreeing to break it into three phases to be accomplished over two years. The plan he developed was beautiful. He first listened to our likes and dislikes and got to know us. He spent a lot of time at the house and around the neighborhood. The plan he developed was meant to represent the era of the home, this was reflected in the selection of plantings and the overall design. The crews that Serge employed were prompt and courteous and cleaned up each night. Serge went out of his way to update us as the work progressed and to educate us about the care of each planting. Once the work was completed Serge continued to come back and check on things. If there were plantings that did not work as planned Serge explained our options and helped from there. If you would like to see Serge's work, please ask him to show you our home... Phil and Kim Hughes"

DC Design LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"Cindy did a beautiful landscape design for my front and back yard, including two rain gardens. She was a delight to work with, reasonably priced, and very knowledgable about plants and worked within my budget. She also recommended some excellent landscaping services and a tree surgeon. I regularly get compliments from my neighbors on my beautiful yard."
- Kathryn Coon
Landscape Design & Associates LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Detroit
"I originally contacted Karleen Shafer to help me with a design for my small backyard, which was used for parking, and completely overgrown with weeds and concrete debris from a torn down garage. Knowing nothing about landscaping or planting, Karleen provided me with two designs and photos of plantings that would work well for an inexperienced gardner. She was attentive to my requirements: a space to park two cars, a patio for entertaining, space for a gas grill, something aesthetically pleasing, and plantings that would be easy for me to maintain. I was so happy with the final design that I also had Karleen and her crew do the installation. This was a late fall installation, and her crew worked around rainy and cold weather to complete the project. She and her crew were respectful and trustworthy. The final layout was beautiful - a flagstone patio for entertaining, a gravel pathway to the tool shed, and a variety of tall grasses, bushes and plants integrated with the hardscaping. I received tons of compliments from family, friends, and neighbors! It was a total transformation and I have enjoyed entertaining and maintaining it for several years now. Karleen stayed in touch after the installation, making sure to educate me on preparing for the cold months (e.g., cutting the grasses back) and what to do in the Spring. All-in-all, an excellent investment with an excellent company with a friendly, hands-on and committed group of landscape professionals! Would hire this company again in a heart beat!

What does a landscape architect do?


The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Detroit house. From there the landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?


A landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Detroit will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Detroit:


  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
