Windsor Companies

Backyard landscape overlooking the St. Croix River in North Hudson, Wisconsin, just 30 minutes from Minneapolis / St. Paul. A previously empty backyard was transformed into outdoor rooms paved with poured and sandblasted concrete and concrete landscape tiles. The ground-level patio connects to the home by two raised patio decks. The outdoor spaces are defined by low brick seat walls capped with blue stone. Four new Maple trees punctuate the symmetrical balance of the new landscape.

Love this! How were the joints of the bluestone on seating wall done?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to City View: Minneapolis Design Style
Minnesotans continue this tradition of outdoor life with their properties. "Wood, water and fire are distinctly Minneapolis/St. Paul looks. The inspiration comes from our north woods area, including the Boundary Waters wilderness and the Lake District, where so many people have cabins," says Arnosti. "People are building pergolas and decks, often in combination with fire pits or fireplaces and babbling brooks and other water features."Tour a wonderful Minnesota lakeside cabin

Fireplace is too much, but love the patio and half walls with the bluestone tops as well as the 4 maple trees for accent.
