Create the landscape of your dreams.

The earth has music for those who listen…

Heritage Landscape Design is...

… a family owned business built on the foundational belief that hard work and dedication to quality pays off. We have been serving the Grand Traverse Area since 2004, and look forward to working with you to create the landscape of your dreams.

With 30 years of combined experience and knowledge of native trees and plants, Heritage Landscape Design offers a unique landscape that will thrive for many years. We maintain a current knowledge of available plants and know how they behave in the landscape in order to protect you from issues such as problematic invasive plants. Heritage Landscape Design is a proud member of the Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association.


Have you watched HGTV, read Better Homes & Gardens or searched Pinterest to solve a landscape problem only to find that the DIY route is much more costly and time consuming than you anticipated and the results don’t quite meet your needs? If that’s the case, connect with us to schedule your own on-site HLD consultation.

"We wish we had done it years ago."

“Heritage Landscape Design took an unfriendly spot in our yard and turned it into the best family entertaining spot we have outside. They listened to what we hoped for and turned it into a reality! They built a patio for us that is wonderful to be on and beautiful to look at – it really dressed up our ‘unfriendly spot!’ We wish we had done it years ago.”

"Even more desirable than I could have expected."

“Liz and Gary listened to my hopes and visions and presented me with well thought out plans. Their staff were pleasant, respectful and conscientious. Now, everyday, I relax on my beautifully landscaped patio, listen to my magnificent fountain bubbler and regularly accept accolades from friends and visitors for my charming and delightful gardens. The outcome is beautiful, artistic and tasteful! Even more desirable than I could have expected.”

"honest, hardworking and dependable"

“Gary and Liz have been helping me maintain and improve my gardens and landscape for nine years. I have a garden on the hill and around the house. Gary has built new walls on the hill and replaced older ones. Liz has helped me design plantings around the house and on the hill. Both have kept bushes and trees trimmed. I would highly recommend them. They are honest, hardworking and dependable.”

"We would highly recommend their work!"

“We are so pleased with the redesign of our front walkway and front porch that Gary and Liz Clous accomplished for us! Both Gary and Liz are very hard workers who spend the time & effort to do things right! We appreciated Liz’s expertise in helping us replace the overgrown shrubbery in front of our house. She even recommended and delivered two of the shrubs that have replaced the old ones, and gave us guidance in transplanting the perennial bed that had been narrowed due to the widened sidewalk. We would highly recommend their work!”
