Maple Leaf Golf Course Patio Expansion & Landscaping - Linwood

Layout and detailing for the outdoor patio expansion to add a grill area, bar service, and food service. Our pavement plan and planting plan integrate the project with the existing golf course, clubhouse, and patio areas. Maple Leaf Golf Course

McLaren visiting nurse & hospice expansion of Brian's House - Bay City

Our design of the walks, waterfall, plantings, irrigation, lighting, and site amenities around this expansion provides welcome outdoor respite areas for the patients, their visitors, and support staff. Our firm's graphics were used for fundraising purposes. Views out of the patient rooms were enhanced while simultaneously screening the service areas. The plantings include numerous perennials and bulbs to provide seasonal flower color from spring through fall. Accent lighting and sculptural pieces add winter interest.

Iosco County Medical Care facility expansion - Tawas City

For the garden space overlooked by the dining room as well as patient rooms, we provided design plans for the walkway layout, landscape grading, plantings, bio-retention, and fiber optic lighting. We detailed the fountain and waterfall, a bridge and stream, and an entry arbor. During the installation, we provided project management services.

Schaefer & Bierlein Platz - Frankenmuth

This new vehicle display provides the local Chrysler dealership with a highly visible corner location. Designscapes, Inc. was responsible for all design work with this project, from preliminary concepts through detailing for the retaining walls, pavements, display towers, grading, plantings, and lighting. Elements were chosen to coordinate with Frankenmuth's streetscape and to create a park-like setting. We solicited bids for masonry/flatwork, carpentry, electrical, asphalt, landscape, irrigation, and flagpoles. During the construction phase, we provided project management services to the owner. Project was completed on time and on budget.
