This backyard landscape design in Edina is small and had open sightlines to neighboring properties. Before construction, the backyard was nothing but a deteriorating screen porch and an old concrete patio covered in Astro Turf. The clients envisioned their back yard becoming the center of outdoor activity as part of the larger remodel of the house.

Before: A cramped porch and featureless backyard.
After: A functional use of space with aesthetic charm.
A custom fiberglass pergola and solid cedar fencing were used to create a sense of enclosure. The custom pergola defines the overhead plane, establishing a “ceiling” that extends beyond the house and creates a sense of spaciousness.
The outdoor living and entertaining space can now accommodate individual and small groups in relative privacy, while the style and design of the landscape reduces the feeling of a small space through harmonious interaction with the house.
Starting with the blank slate of new construction, both the front and back yards have been tailored to the needs of this growing family.
Your perfect outdoor living space begins with a simple conversation. Let’s talk about your landscaping project!
