Windsor Companies

The entire grounds of this Lake Minnetonka home was renovated as part of a major home remodel.

The orientation of the entrance was improved to better align automobile traffic. The new permeable driveway is built of recycled clay bricks placed on gravel. The remainder of the front yard is organized by soft lawn spaces and large Birch trees. The entrance to the home is accentuated by masses of annual flowers that frame the bluestone steps.

On the lake side of the home a secluded, private patio offers refuge from the more publicly viewed backyard.

This project earned Windsor Companies a Grand Honor award and Judge's Choice by the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
For many people, the term English garden is synonymous with traditional garden design. Whatever you call it, capturing the feel of a home set in the midst of a green, parklike area is key. The large lawn and stately trees are the starting point. There's a sense of flow between every part of the garden rather than separation. Design tip: Lush greenery is a key feature of this style. If you live in a climate where water is scarce, the look may not be the best choice. If you want to try to replicate it, look for plantings that have the same feel but are drought-tolerant, and consider scaling the look back or incorporating it in a smaller area.
