In 2000, Anna Brooks joined Arcadia Gardens, LLC, a family owned company (3 generations and counting!) serving the southwest corner of Michigan, adding a maintenance and fine gardening service division, utilizing her degree in horticulture from Michigan State University and her background in grounds maintenance. Founded in 1990, the business has grown slowly over the years, providing custom designs, quality hardscape installation and thoughtful planting schemes. In 2008, she and her husband Todd took the reins and developed an award winning, full service landscape design/build firm that is quickly approaching 30 years of serving Michigan’s Great Southwest! Anna and the team at Arcadia approaches each and every project with the same level of professionalism and attention, regardless of the scope of work. Her designs and projects range from simple front entries to entire estates, utilizing a variety of materials: natural stone, paving products, timber, corten steel, native restoration and ornamental plantings. Their client base is 90% residential and 10% commercial.
