Landscape Design | Landscape Plan Approval | Southeast Michigan


You have a vision for your yard. But will it pass the zoning requirements of your locale government? In some cases, a homeowners’ association or neighborhood group may also need to sign off on your plans. Relax! We handle residential landscape design and plan approval processes for any variety of situations.

  • Historic homes. Your yard and surrounding landscape features may have to undergo vetting before a final installation decision may be made. Having a home declared a historic location is an honor. However, once you do so, you have an obligation to preserve the character of the house and its surrounding property. We can help by preparing a landscape design that will coordinate with the home’s architectural features.
  • Master plan development. When you’re bound by covenants, it’s tempting to delay professional landscape design until you have all your ducks in a row. You don’t have to wait. We can create a master plan to submit for approval. From there, you can implement phases of the landscape as you become ready for them. We can work in sections, which prevents you from dealing with continually living in a construction zone.
  • City and county ordinance review. If there are some landscape features that you need the city or county to approve, we can work up a residential landscape plan approval document. We highlight the areas of interest for the governing bodies. At the same time, we detail how the work will be done, what effect – if any – it may have on traffic in the area, and how we handle the cleanup of the site.

Frequently, homeowner associations and other groups want to ensure that they will not have to deal with landscape removal and that your irrigation design and installation will meet all local codes.
