Regular pruning maintenance helps improve the plants health and also enhances the aesthetics of the landscape. Below are some before and after images, our pruning services are offered to both residential and commercial clients.

Michigan Landscape Services

This year Berns Landscaping and Quality Tree Services undertook a huge landscape reconstruction project at a local condominium community in Saint Clair Shores. The project was focused on one of the property lines, the specific targeted fence line borders a boat yard. The less than beautiful view of overgrown vegetation, chain link fence and old boats was a very unappealing view to residents.

The photos below offer views of the project before, during and after landscape reconstruction.

This beautiful Grosse Pointe Shores home started off with a simple landscape design, that left the home feeling plain. An abundance of greenery lined the walkways, which created a very monotone appearance. The low lying shrubs brought your eye to the ground taking away from the overall beauty of the home.

Landscape Before & After
An older landscape design leaves this beautiful home looking simple and boring.

Berns Landscape designers came in and created a new look to update this home from front to back.The addition of textures, flowers and color brighten up this one monotone landscape.  Varying heights of shrubs in different textures create a visually appealing landscape. The addition of color breaks up the green and the additional seating in the front creates a calming spot to sit and relax.

Grosse Pointe Shores Landscape Design
The addition of colorful plants and trees liven up this once dull landscape, while the addition of a pond creates a calming focal point in the backyard.

The original focal point of the backyard, was a large rock surrounded by shrubs. Berns designers transformed this area into a koi pond with a cascading waterfall. This natural element creates a peaceful retreat in the backyard, with its visual appeal and the soothing sound of water.

 

Sometimes home and business owners change landscape companies, this is done for various reasons. However, sometimes they also change right back. Here is an example of a local business where the company switched who did their annual plantings.

We’ll let you decide who did the better job.

Award Winning Backyard Landscape

This beautiful courtyard found in the Mies Van Der Rohe Townhouses which is on the National Register of Historic Places, had been left in overgrown and outdated state. The original landscaping which was installed in 1972, was written up in the Detroit Newspaper in October, 1973.

After 35 years this once beautiful historical courtyard was in desperate need of a landscape overhaul. The original water garden couldn’t be seen over the Waterii Scotch Pine and Mugho Pine. All the remaining trees and shrubs had been left neglected for so long there were none left to save.

Before - Outdated Court Yard
Before – An outdated historical courtyard lies disheveled and overgrown.

 

Keeping with the same theme of Asian Gardens, this outdated overgrown space was to be transformed into a calm and relaxing zen garden filled with rocky paths and minimalist design.

Backyard Zen Garden
After – A fully restored historical courtyard.

 

The new courtyard consists of Asian influenced plants and shrubs, a river stone pond and zen walk path all accented by Asian art pieces.  This beautiful courtyard reconstruction, was the Michigan Green Industry Association’s 2008 Gold Award Winner for outstanding achievement in landscape reconstruction.
