Michigan Landscape Craftsman chose the term 'craftsman' with great care. When it comes to landscapes there are plenty of companies out there who are happy design something, but they are essentially architects working to an imagined concept. Then there are the construction companies who can build anything but come from a construction mindset of bricks and mortar. What we do is combine both in the sense of craftsmen who not only know the craft and design side but can also translate that ourselves into realistic and practical landscapes that work for you.
Points to Consider
When Michigan Landscape Craftsman come to your property to assess it before embarking on any landscape design projects they are looking for the genius loci. Yes we know it sounds like Thor's brother but actually it's an ancient roman term for the spirit of a place. In modern English what that means is that you get so much more from design if you harness the best features and potential attributes of a landscape and enhance them as a way of using what's already there to maximize its beauty and practicality. We aim to combine spacial awareness to enhance the sense of freedom from the outdoors with shelter features where appropriate for the use you want to make of that outdoors.
To a landscape craftsmen plants aren't just beautiful living things; they are also a palette of colors and effects that we can combine to create the fantastic effects that make a landscape stand out from a simple garden or yard. Whether we're talking trees, shrubs, or water flowers we know how to harness mother nature to give your outdoors the right look for you. That means everything from rockeries, to lush lawns, and even designer container planting to bring green grandeur to your spaces from the smallest yard to the largest grounds.
Outdoor lighting brings any landscape to life and massively extends your enjoyment time beyond the hours of daylight. Clearly outdoor lighting is an art since it means combining an understanding of the lighting that will use light and shade to give shape to spaces with a practical grasp of water and weatherproof electrical systems that will continue to function faultlessly all year round. We have a brilliant array of outdoor safe LED lighting effects that we can use to make your landscape luminous, increase the security of your periphery, bring your water features to glittering life, or simply light visitors the way around your spectacular grounds.
Water is life when it comes to gardens, but that doesn't mean that every landscape needs the same amount of irrigation. We understand irrigation and can design and install systems including drainage and sprinkler systems for every purpose, from keeping lawns luxuriant to providing just the right amount of irrigation for semi desert gardens and outdoor living spaces. We install pumps for water features and sprinkler systems with timers to take care of your greenery when you can't.
