2016 Landscape Award: Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association

What began as a request for a new driveway resulted in a reimagined front yard that reflects the mid-century beauty of this architect-designed 1950’s home. Ground One provided these homeowners with a unique driveway, resolved their drainage problems, and designed a custom landscape that reflected their home’s unique architecture. Design elements included:

  • Cantilevered steps that mimic a concrete waterfall
  • A custom-designed iron handrail
  • Rectangular retaining walls framing the oaks & entry
  • Raised plant beds with Quaking Aspen for privacy
  • Lighting under the cantilevered concrete platforms
