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.
