This Apple Valley project won top honors in 2012 from the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association for transforming a steep and useless backyard into an "amazing" outdoor living space.
Northern Tool Director – Real Estate + Facilities, Scott Stocke was looking for a way to dress up the property for employees. The project team created an outdoor patio with the Northern Tool logo inlayed in pavers. Engineering a new entry was a challenge! Scott says it was an amazing construction process that turned out "better than anybody expected it to be."
These Minnetrista homeowners love to be outside entertaining family and friends. This project includes pool, fireplace, fire pit, putting green, outdoor kitchen and other outdoor living spaces, and water features. The last element added was the fireplace which was constructed to match the architectural features on the home. From 5' down to 14' above ground, the fireplace is one structure. The pergola had to be craned in around the home.
