Landscape Design Services


About us:  After completing the M.S.U. 2-year Horticulture Program, Larry J. Bakker founded Landscape Design Services in 1968 at the same location it remains today between Holland and Grand Haven in beautiful West Michigan.  At that time Larry was working out of his house with one employee and a truck.  Since then, the business has grown to become the largest full-service landscape company in West Michigan with 165 team members at peak season.

While the business has grown in size, the growth has been fueled by the one-on-one long-term relationships our designers and service staff have developed with our clients.  Our team and service are our strength.  Larry’s sons, Matt and Jeremy Bakker, now lead LDS.  Both grew up in the business and studied landscape architecture at Michigan State University.  There are currently at least 14 M.S.U. 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.
