Fairytale Cottage Courtyard

Fairytale Cottage Courtyard

2015 Landscape Award: Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association

This design creates a quiet, elegant connection with the unique cottage architecture of the home.  The result is a sophisticated, beautiful and highly functional new landscape. The home’s curb appeal is boosted by limestone steps and columns, which reflects the limestone embedded in the home’s stucco exterior. A sunken courtyard in the backyard addresses drainage issues and provides the patio and play-space the homeowners craved. Special landscape elements include:

  • Contrasting Lilacstone stoop, step treads and walkways
  • Curved steps that wrap the patio
  • A new built-in gas grill counter
  • Plantings that complement the home’s architecture
  • New exterior sconces and LED lighting
