OBJECTIVE:  To create a unique and interesting backyard that fits the natural wooded setting.

CHALLENGES: Limited space and uneven terrain.


• Natural materials, such as flagstone, were used to blend into the adjacent surroundings – a wooded ravine and wetland preserve.

• Fieldstone boulders were used create multi-level entertaining spaces and retain the existing slopes and grade changes.

• A pondless water feature, designed as a babbling brook with small waterfalls, helps add to the natural feel of the project while creating a gentle, calming water soundtrack to the backyard.

• A cozy fire pit patio expands the entertaining space and possibilities.

• Under-decking helps create a warm, dry patio space under the deck, with welcoming furniture and a small bar.

Location: Maple Grove, Minnesota

FEATURING:  Stone Masonry, Fire Feature, Softscapes
