2010 Landscape Award: Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association

This landscape design + build project represents a dramatic change from ordinary to extraordinary. The homeowners are avid gardeners who wished for a front yard that reflected their home and lifestyle. The new design embraces a steeply-sloped front lawn typical to South Minneapolis. The new design features a diversity of trees, shrubs and perennials along with a series of deconstructed terraces and a new staircase. The highlight of the design is the reveal of a perfect circle of lawn as you ascend the staircase.  Other special elements include:

  • Natural stone retaining walls
  • Reserved spaces for planting annuals
  • Lighting highlights focal points and illuminates pathways
