Project Description

This Lake Minnetonka estate owner wanted to make sure that we highlighted and enhanced the features of the architecture with new landscape elements. Long sweeping views towards Maxwell Bay were the highlight of the lakeside part of the home so it was important to maintain a more simplistic approach to the landscape design. The architecture of the home incorporated New York bluestone and had elements built into the home such as fieldstone and limestone sills. So we introduced concrete pavers that mimic the bluestone and we used limestone steps and walkways to visually tie back into the house. The client also had visions of an abundance of color for the plantings around the property. Multiple perennial gardens and annual beds became the featured elements to complete the look. A perfect Lake Minnetonka home and setting!
