From natural-looking streams to architectural fountains, water features are important focal points in the landscape, and some Minneapolis/St. Paul homeowners are opting to have more than one.
Some homeowners will put a bubbler at the front entry to greet guests. Others place them close to outdoor living spaces or near a fire. Some water features are near swimming pools, hung on garden walls, or are fountainhead sprays hidden in a pool deck. Even the smallest spaces can have a water feature. Containers and urns serve quite nicely as self-contained fountains.
The motion and sound of water is hypnotic and soothing. It also serves a purpose – to mask street and neighborhood noises. Pondless stone-column bubblers, waterfalls, streams, and fountains can be simple or dramatic.

This family of six upgraded their backyard with a modern Bluestone patio and a perfectly regraded lawn for playing sports and games.
Did someway say curb appeal? Stunning paver driveway, front entry, and swimming pool in North Oaks.
These Edina homeowners wanted a place to greet neighbors in the front yard, places to entertain in the back, and a spa they could use year-round.
Modern lines, fine pavers, detailed patio and a simple color palette with vibrant garden accents.
We've worked with these clients for several years. For this project, they called us in to design and install a new patio off the kitchen and screen porch, as well as install outdoor lighting, and redoing the steps and retaining wall.
