Now more than ever, we need our backyards as tranquil space to relax and recharge. Here are a few ideas for creating a relaxing and joyful space in your backyard.
Seat walls, built with modular block or natural stone, are a simple way to include additional seating around a fire pit or water feature, or on the edge of a patio or outdoor living space.
Seat walls are low with an average height of 18”. The top of the wall (seat) should be a minimum of 12” wide. Although usually free-standing, these seat walls can also be used to retain soil in a plant bed or create an elevation change.
Seated on the wall, it’s easier to reach the vegetables or flowers. In recent years at senior-assisted living facilities and community gardens, raised planter gardens are surrounded by a retaining-seat wall, giving older or infirm people the opportunity to garden. Seat walls can also be used instead of safety railings when there is an elevation change.

New construction is a blank canvas for Minneapolis landscaper to create a classic design with curb appeal and a backyard patio with a view in Edina, MN.
This backyard blends modern and natural elements together to create a low-maintenance outdoor living space with a plunge pool, terraced patios, a fire table, water feature, and a outdoor great room.
The focus of this project was to make the back yard wheelchair accessible and add curb appeal. The project was completed over two years. The front yard was completed first, then the backyard.
