L.D. asks from Westland, MI on January 09, 2009
Happy New Year....
I'm in need of some landscaping. I just moved to my home 3 months ago and I have an huge backyard. I would love for my yard to look like an outdoor oasis : ) Does any one have any referrals for a inexpensive company. Thanks

My husband works for a company called A.L.L. Landscaping Inc. They are very reasonable and do good work. Here is the number ###-###-####. They are based in Macomb Township but will work anywhere. Hope this helps!

My brother is great at that. He will be coming home from his travels next week and I could set up a meeting with him. He's had his own business doing it for years. He could start in the spring. I could have him call you when he gets to town.

We are in the same boat. Would love to know if you find an inexpensive company!

You can save by using native MI plants that are good for our weather (and the birds) and may not need a ton extra water.
Here's a search for MI plants you can do by color even, when they bloom (have flowers all summer and into the fall).
Blocks nursery down past the airport also has great prices on there plants. Of course there's the wonderful supply at eastern market. I love the herb farmers stand, beautiful lavender.
Happy planting! A. H

FYI - go to Eastern Market in Detroit when spring arrives. We got all our landscaping plants/trees for a fraction of the cost of local nurseries. Also, check out freecycle and post that you want flowers. I have to divide mine every spring and so do others. I see many people posting their flowers on freecycle.
Check out landscaping books from the library, drive around and take pictures of what you like. You will be surprised at how well you can landscape on a budget!

This fall, I used Precision Landscaping to re-grade and re-seed my backyard. I was told that the price I paid was very reasonable. I don't have the number with me right now but you can look them up in the yellow pages. They are located in Waterford but I'm sure they're willing to travel (I live in Berkley and they had no problem coming out there and my dad lives in New Baltimore and has had them do work for him out that way too).
