Tuscany on the Parkway
2018 Award Winner: Excellence in Landscape & Judges’ Choice Award, Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association
Our client, a busy Minneapolis family, dreamed of an outdoor oasis that incorporated elements of old world Tuscany while complementing their home’s architectural style. Their wish list included an outdoor fireplace, grill, dining area, and pergola. Most important, the family wanted to create a usable space for private relaxation and entertaining.
We designed and built a flexible courtyard that united the house, garage and landscape. The space is perfect for dining and relaxing, and the plumbed gas grill makes it ideal for grilling as well. The cozy fireplace creates the perfect focal point and a warm spot for gathering on cool nights.
Highlights of this project include:
- Reclaimed barnwood pergola
- Stone fireplace (gas)
- Stone courtyard and seat wall
- Lighting and irrigation systems controlled via phone app
- Simple, low maintenance plantings
