About us:

After completing the MSU 2-year Horticulture Program, Larry J. Bakker founded Landscape Design Services in 1968 between Holland and Grand Haven in beautiful West Michigan. Since then, the business has grown to become the largest full-service landscape contractor in West Michigan with 185 team members at peak season. While the business has grown in size, the growth has been fueled by the individual one-on-one long-term relationships our Designers and Team have developed with our clients. Our team and service are our strength. Larry Bakker's sons, Matt and Jeremy, now lead LDS. Both grew up in the business and studied landscape architecture at Michigan State University. There are currently over 15 MSU graduates in key roles at LDS. Past interns are always looked at first when full-time positions are open.

Landscape Design Services provides landscape design and construction, lawn and landscape maintenance, as well as snow removal services to commercial and residential clients throughout West Michigan.
