Outdoor Landscaping and Design
I needed only outdoor living to complete stairs for my patio. Not only did they finish the steps which look amazing but the workers were willing to help me out with some of the other labor intensive things that I still needed to get done. I would recommend them to anyone that needs any landscaping done!!Aug 24, 2019Verified
Outdoor Landscaping and Design
James and his guys did a wonderful job. The entire front of our home needed an extreme landscaping makeover and that's exactly what they provided. We are very happy with the "finished product" and they were courteous and professional. I would recommend Only Outdoor Living without reservation.Jul 10, 2019VerifiedOnly Outdoor Living's reply
Thank you Mark! We really appreciate your business. You and Mary were great to work for!
We love the landscaping project James & his crew completed for us recently - everything from the design, unique plant selections, quality of products (edging, mulch, etc), efficiency & professionalism. We also had him install a drip irrigation system that has truly made our yard not only beautiful, but this area is maintenance free! Thank you!

Thanks Ginny! You and Max were a lot of fun to work with! We truly appreciate you trusting us with your landscape!
We were very pleased with Only Outdoor Living each step of the process. First, James created a patio/landscape design that complemented our home, and fit all the requests we had specified. The workmanship by James and his team was well done, down to each detail: mason work on fireplace, landscape, lighting, and even cleanup afterwards! James was very good about communicating with us about any changes that came up schedule, weather, or worksite related. We also appreciated their patience when we decided to add or change minor details. We highly recommend Only Outdoor Living, and absolutely love our extended living space.May 23, 2019Only Outdoor Living's reply
Thanks for the kind words Kassy! It was a pleasure working with you and David. I hope you enjoy many nights by the fireplace!
James at Only Outdoor Living was very professional in all his dealings with us, from design to installation of our new landscaping. He texted us daily as to what would be done (it was a rainy fall!). He set up a web cam that we could log into to watch the progress. He was professional in every way. His workers were friendly and were conscientious about the mud and dirt. Our new retaining walls look great and low maintenance landscaping for the future. Totally recommend!Nov 8, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We pride ourselves in being a competitively priced design and construction firm. We'll not pretend to be the "cheap" guys. Frankly, if you're looking to get a project done for the lowest price, we'll probably not be a good fit for you. If you're looking for excellent craftsmanship at a fair price, then we should probably talk.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically we start with a brief phone conversation to answer some questions and get an understanding of the project. Lots of people send us a few pictures of the area in question, which helps us provide some more detailed information during that initial call. Ultimately, if it seems like a project we can help with, an on-site consultation is typically the next step. At that face-to-face meeting, we might discuss contracting a landscape design, or we may just try to give you a better understanding of the cost and scope of the project we are discussing. Regardless of the project in question, we will be forthright concerning the potential costs and work diligently to provide a solution that is both functional and beautiful.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My staff and I have over 30 years of experience designing and building custom outdoor living spaces from Traverse City, MI, down to Elkhart, IN. I have a BBA from Davenport University in Grand Rapids, MI. Furthermore, I have taken many landscape design courses at MSU in conjunction with the Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association, and completed countless industry CEU's with the APLD, ICPI, PLANET, and the NASRW. Mostly, I just really enjoy my work designing and building awesome landscapes! There is no other job I'd rather do...
