2012 Landscape Award: Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association

This pool now integrates seamlessly with the lush landscape of ornamental grasses and specimen evergreens that surrounds it. The homeowners approached Ground One with the goal of upgrading the landscape surrounding their existing in-ground swimming pool. The challenge was to refresh the existing landscape while working within the constraints of the existing pool and its narrow perimeter spaces. The homeowners admire Asian garden aesthetics, so ornamentation and plant species were selected to emphasize simplicity in their distinct forms. Highlights include:

  • Flexible patio for entertaining
  • New concrete paver pool decking
  • Trellises support vines and soften garage profile
  • Repetition and texture reference Asian landscapes
  • Landscape lighting provides quiet moments
