Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Grand Rapids
Omega Brick & Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Designers in Grand Rapids
"Omega Brick / Brent Langley has done many different projects for us during the last few years. They were 1) an interlocked brick front porch; 2) an interlocked brick wall for a back deck; 3) an outdoor wood-fired oven ( with pedestal); 4) relaying a front brick walkway; 5) relaying a back brick walkway and patio; 6) landscaping a side park and paths; and 7) laying a slate walkway for one of the paths. All of the work was done by Mr. Langley himself. He is creative and meticulous. We were particularly impressed with how he both researched and then went about constructing the oven (a first for both of us). We were also impressed with his catching some errors by the general regarding the back deck's construction. Those errors would would have caused problems later on had Mr. Langley not corrected them. Mr. Langley may not work as quickly as some might like. However, we were pleased that he took his time and did it right. We also did not get competing bids so we cannot assess how competitive Mr. Langley is. However, we are satisfied that he charged us a fair price. We also believe that you get what you pay for."

Kalamazoo Garden Design & Maintenance, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Grand Rapids
"Kalamazoo Garden Design & Maintenance is one of the greatest finds in Kalamazoo. The yard around our house is not big but it slopes away to the side walk. We have been trying for years to take care of it ourselves, but whatever we plant never has worked out to well. They came over looked at the property, listened to what we wanted and in 2 days we had a very reasonable estimate. The work was done quickly and professionally and the results were tremendous. I would hardily recommend this company to anyone who need landscaping and yard care."

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 Grand Rapids 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 Grand Rapids 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 Grand Rapids:


  • 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?
