History

Since 1987 and the founding vision of Larry and Arlene Nienhuis, Blue Ridge has been captivated by creation. We shape the elements in ways that define outdoor space and exude a natural sense of comfort, luxury and home.

From our early start growing small evergreens to the robust landscape installation and maintenance services we offer today, Blue Ridge has maintained a foundation of faith and a love for participating in God’s creation.

In 2007, Brent Nienhuis bought the business from Larry and Arlene after working for 12 years for the company. Under his leadership, Blue Ridge has designed and built outdoor living areas throughout Michigan. The company has developed unique expertise in the shaping of stone to contain fire, control water and complement earth. Blue Ridge takes pride in shaping and stewarding spaces where people connect and landscapes are enjoyed. Looking to the next 30 years, we plan to keep seeking and celebrating the outdoor beauty that naturally inspires our work.






Chris and Blue Ridge team performed exceptionally well on our landscaping project in North Muskegon, Michigan. Chris was careful to review and carry through each and every detail of our design which included extensive retaining walls, exposed aggregate walkway/patios, outdoor kitchen, linear fireplace, hot tub, stainless steel fencing and of course landscaping. Chris continues to stay in contact to assure that everything meets our expectations.
