borders a raised patio which makes a great observation deck to view this
unique collection of dwarf evergreens. The dwarf conifers include, a dwarf
blue spruce, a contorted european larch and a weeping white pine.

of 2-8" fieldstone cobbles. Very Low Maintenance!
Looking for a inexpensive and creative way to dress up an entry garden?
A small water feature like this requires little maintenance and only a small
amount of materials. A great focal point for under $700.00!
And to create a water garden on a slightly grander scale, try having a rolling
waterfall attached to a fish pond. This pond in Annandale, Mn is 20 feet long
and 2 feet deep.
This waterfall which was built in Otsego, MN was created with the help of the
homeowner. We love to work with the help and input of our customers.
purple quartz granite. This is a good low maintenance solution for pathways.
With a nice naturallistic arrangement of plants surrounding, even a quality
manufactured fountain can become a great garden accent.
This Hosta collection garden was created utilizing the structure of an old
greenhouse. Adding a brick pathway creates an amazing tunnel-like garden.

yarrow, catmint, grasses and a purple smokebush. All of our customers

Do you have a large area which you would like to cover with something very
beautiful but don't want to spend a lot of money? This plant, known as
Gooseneck Loosestrife (Lysimachia clethroides) is a long-flowering spreading

This customer wanted to remove some old shrubs and dress up his driveway
to add curb appeal. We kept some of the established focal plants and added
some evergreen and perennial selections.
Back to the pathways. I forgot to mention the beautiful lawn. Our sod
is the highest quality available anywhere. It is super-high quality sod with
a blend of perennial rye, festcue and bluegrass seeds. Sod farms around the
twin cities metro cut their grass for laying as soon as it has seeded at their
farms. Our sod supplier 'ages' their sod for months to produce established
and hardy grass which is always greener and more drought tolerant.
trap boulders as outcropping to match the stone on the house. The garden
consists of plants such as Bleeding hearts, lamiun, globeflower and brunnera.
This entry garden is designed in an english garden style. Reclaimed stone
was used to create the pathway walls. Azalea's and daffodil's make this a
welcoming Spring garden.
This is the first perennial garden that I ever created which was for my
parents. Included within are Coral bells, yellow yarrow, orange milkweed,
blue veronica and yellow tickseed.
Buestone walkway with grey trap boulders. Maintenance free solutions.
For a more interesting patio, try using circle patterns and/or different levels. This is made with Anchor paving stones.
