"Best Landscaping Company"
by the readers of Grand Rapids Magazine!

My name is Douglas Byl, President of Stout Creek Landscapes and I want to reassure you that doing business with our company will be a very positive experience. We are in the business of growing relationships one landscape at a time.

Since 1987 we’ve done something unique in the landscape design/build/maintenance business in the Grand Rapids area. We’ve eliminated most of the problems homeowners typically have trying to find, hire, evaluate and work with a landscape contractor.

Whether it’s a large design and build project, a water feature, pavers and walls, creating a natural area, mowing your lawn, or simply increasing your home’s curb appeal, we understand that a lot of people experience some concern when looking for a landscape contractor they can trust to work with them from conceptualizing a project all the way through to completion, follow up, and maintenance.

Here are 3 areas we recommend you consider in evaluating
ANY landscape contractor you talk to:

  • 1. Reputation of the Company in the Community and their Business Stability
  • I believe that a professional Landscape Company is providing a great service by enhancing, promoting and contributing to the natural beauty of their community; and should be a dedicated member of the businesses community, taking great pride in their work.

  • 2. Experience and Methodology for Your Type of Projects
  • Even a “simple” project requires multiple skills and knowledge: Design, horticulture, engineering, and craftsmanship. Be sure that the company you choose has the experience for YOUR type of project. Otherwise, they’re going to be learning on the job…. YOUR JOB.

  • 3. Service Before, During and After Your Project
  • Keep in mind that a lot companies come and go. In fact, in a 2011 survey, over 35% of landscape companies had failed in their first 5 years. So when it comes to follow- up service, warranties and guarantees, they’re only as good as the company that stands behind them.

If you want to increase your enjoyment and use of your outdoor living space with a new patio, new landscape plantings, new walkways, a water feature, retaining walls or landscape lighting it is possible for your landscape project to be done right the first time without the hidden charges, hassles or poor quality that are all too commonly found in our industry.

We have extensive experience with drainage and water problems and can provide eco-friendly options like a rain garden. We strive to use plant varieties native to Michigan, and grown in the upper Midwest. Providing 4-season interest is one way that we beautify your property all year long.

We provide 4-season landscape maintenance and management services including: lawn mowing, spring and fall cleanups, insect and disease control, pruning, mulching, seasonal flower plantings and so much more. You can read about all of our services by clicking here.

I encourage you to carefully review our site. We will provide you with a complete copy of our consumer guide and step-by-step installation process upon request.

If you’re worried about the cost to design/install/maintain your landscape, this information will provide you with an advantage in evaluating, hiring and working with a landscape contractor.

I realize our industry is competitive and I appreciate this opportunity to earn your business. I realize what it takes to get your business, what it takes to give you the results you demand and what needs to be done to eliminate many of the common headaches and frustrations people have with landscape projects.

Thanks for your time and we look forward to making your property a showplace in your neighborhood.

Sincerely,
Doug Byl
