Ray’s Landscape & Design Firm, Inc., was one of Southeastern Michigan’s premiere landscape design and build firms.

The Berryman Design Group, LLC, insured and bonded, have been creating as well as installing garden environments and exterior architectural designs, creating enchanting, stunning gardens and every component that makes up these magical environments for residential and commercial clients.

R. Christopher Berryman’s goal is “To create the environment that allows you to enjoy your own sanctuary, a sanctuary that is a joy to the senses”.

Turning ordinary land and transforming it into stunning gardens has been our sole focus for 25 years, and we are very proud of our clients continually stating not only are they thrilled with the results, but at the same time advising us that our landscape design and installation has increased the value of their property.

Our most important responsibility to you, our client, is to gain full knowledge of your lifestyle and preferences. Your garden and landscaping design not only has to be fantastically beautiful, but functional as well. We also take into consideration how you plan on using your landscaping/garden space in the upcoming years.

We are landscaping “artists” who combine your lifestyle with your exterior decor and nature making the ultimate statement.
