Landscape Design & Consults

Dogwood Designs is owned and operated by Mike Mesch. Mike got his start in the landscape industry over 20 years ago cutting grass and doing small landscaping projects in the commercial setting.



Mike Mesch has a bachelor’s degree in environmental design from the University of Minnesota. From installation crew member to landscape architecture intern, Mike learned by doing in the field as well as in the classroom and design studio.

At Dogwood Designs, we believe the best designers are out in the field with the crew, learning how to do things better. Do not be surprised to see Mike working side by side with crews installing Dogwood Designs projects. A great landscape design firm is always learning and finding ways to better serve their clients. Whether that be in the field or in the classroom.

Dogwood Designs projects range from native plants and rain garden design to extravagant backyard entertaining spaces. It’s never the wrong time to discuss turf grass alternatives. If you are a homeowner looking it to do it yourself, or a commercial property manager looking to increase curb appeal and decrease maintenance, Dogwood Design is here to help. There’s no project too small or too large. Whatever your landscape needs are, let’s get the discussion started.
