Monkey Grass is growing to the left of the staircase. For more questions regarding the greenery, the landscape architect for this project was Travis Van Liere.

They are not bushes - appear to be single trunk birch trees which grow very well in Minnesota .

What Houzz contributors are saying:

6. Cantilever a space over the garage. This hillside house has the potential of being overpowering with its 3-story level. The architect played down the garage with box window built-out above it. An inviting set of stairs leads visitors to the main entry level.

Nestled within Minneapolis’ Linden Hills neighborhood, this new home is a careful composition of light, volume, color and texture.
