TRUE BLUE Landscaping

Our Choices Matter!

The best way to keep Torch Lake clear and blue is to maintain the natural landscape of northern Michigan.

In the natural Up North landscape, homes blend into their surroundings, views are framed by trees and native plants abound.

The natural landscape keeps stormwater on your land.

TRUE BLUE Landscaping prevents runoff from carrying sediments, nutrients and toxins downhill and polluting the lake.
