2017 Award Winner: Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association 

This project includes a dining space, sitting area, fire feature and dry creekbed, all built to respect the neighborhood’s drainage pattern. The landscape design allows for entertaining in different configurations: pre-dinner cocktails around the fire, a roaring flame as backdrop during dinner, kids roasting marshmallows while the adults linger within sight at the dining table, or the gang huddled around a bonfire. Special features include:

  • A rustic campfire surrounded by bluestone
  • Large boulders repurposed in the retaining wall
  • Bluestone as a unifying natural element throughout
  • A visually-compelling creekbed
