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.

That's pretty much up to you. You have stucco too, along with a nice color in the windows. Personally I would go towards blending the color schemes rather than trying to nail an exact match to the brick only.

It looks like the patio is slate or bluestone. No reason you couldn't use the same material.

Anything that will climb a wall is going to require pruning & related maintainance issues. Perhaps u could consider a type of climbing rose?

I'm sorry I can't help you on the color of these windows. They are a similar color to our Renaissance Bronze Charcoal finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
Formality is still possible. As this landscape style developed, the transition from strictly formal to natural happened gradually, and the same approach can be used in your own garden. Keep the formal areas near the house, to complement the architecture and provide a spot to sit and enjoy the rest of the space.
Laura Gaskill added this to Care and Training for a Vine-Covered Home
Can you ever have vines climb your house safely? The short answer is yes. If you have a brick or masonry home, it may be possible to have that vine-covered house of your dreams without damage being caused — that is, if the masonry is in perfect condition. Vines generally do not damage sturdy brick and mortar or stonework, but give them a tiny crack or chip, and the roots can work their way in, causing larger cracks and crumbling.Homes with shingles or vinyl siding should have trellises, as vines grown directly on these surfaces can loosen and break shingles and pull off siding. Vines can trap moisture against the house, making them a poor choice for wood siding as well. Stucco is a mixed case: In good condition it is fairly sturdy, but removing the vines can chip and damage the surface.
