Create a well rounded landscape design.

Looking to add or update perennial and/or annual plants in your landscape design. This includes your grass, trees, and the soil. Well-planned softscaping should create an optimal balance of living plants within the hardscape structures.

Planning considerations should include seasonal issues, such as frost or heat. We look to you natural surrounding to incorporate plants to capture the color of the seasons, along with others that can be enjoyed year-round.


A home without plants and trees can feel cold and unwelcoming. Let us create a colorful softscape plan to complement the features of your home and add softness and beauty. We will use our expert knowledge to carefully select plants that thrive in West Michigan’s year-round weather conditions.

Artificial Turf

When grass, lawns, and change of season have become too much to keep up with, we can install artificial turf designed to keep a luscious color year-round. Artificial grass is proven to ensure a wide array of weather conditions, physical activity, and more.

Low-maintenance artificial grass will be able to endure whatever activity you have planned for it. Our specialists will ensure it is installed properly so you won’t have to worry about constant repairs.

Softscape Services

We hand-select the highest quality plants, flowers, and shrubs

We generally try to use plants that are proven to grow well in our USDA hardiness zone, as this is a more eco-friendly practice and requires less resources and maintenance.  Our services can completely re-do or add to your landscape depending on its current condition.  This includes bed design, soil preparation, and bed installation.

Different types of plants will work with different properties’ landscapes. Consider the variety of plants we can use in your turnkey or beginning landscape bed:

  • Groundcovers
  • Shade perennials
  • Sun perennials
  • Vines
  • Deciduous shrubs
  • Evergreen shrubs
  • Deciduous trees
  • Evergreen trees
