This suburban North Oaks, MN home needed some curb appeal. The designer took advantage of the corner lot to bring the driveway in on one street and out on the other. With Kichler low-voltage lights along the driveway and uplights on the front yard trees, you are drawn to the front entry. You feel as though you've come home.

The concrete pavers have the old-world character of a cobbled street. The edge of the driveway is well-defined by a poured concrete curb.

The courtyard-inspired landscape design uses a tiered modular block retaining wall planted with flowers and grasses to define the space.


Extraordinary landscape designs with luxurious materials and amenities.


Backyard swimming pool projects. Designs perfect for hot summer days, pool parties, and enjoying the summer with friends and family.

Curb Appeal

First impressions and focal points for welcoming guests and framing your home.

The existing swimming pool area in the back yard received a few upgrades such as a resurfaced pool deck with a few added features: flagstone patio and stone fire pit; landscape lighting which matches the light fixtures along the driveway.

Hardscapes: Pavers - Borgert Cobble Series, Natural Stone - Fond du Lac | Lighting: Kichler low-voltage fixtures
