Paver Driveway and Patio

Minnetonka Makeover

This project, which broke ground in 2014, was a full remodel of both house and the landscape. The garage and front entry approach were inconvenient and confusing – and surrounded by a mid-80s landscape.

Our builder partner, Destiny Homes, handled the home’s remodel to give it a French country look. Reworking the position of the garage allowed for a well-defined front entry. The designer installed a paver driveway with a courtyard feel, in keeping with the architectural details of the home, which now has ample parking space in front of the garage. The front entry red brick was replaced with travertine. The backyard landscape had old timber walls and steps leading to a cracked concrete patio…not very inviting. Those timber walls and steps were replaced with Fond du Lac stone (a big thank you to our supplier, Origin Stone!). The pavers in the redesigned backyard patio match the driveway pavers for consistency front to back. The patio overlooks a small pond at the back of the yard and now the homeowners watch all the wildlife in style.
