Windsor Companies

This home is perched at the top of a steep hill that descends to a small lake. The slopes were eroding, the outdoor dining areas were too small and the wooden timber walls and steps were beginning to fail.

Our simple, richly detailed solution demonstrates Windsor's ability to work with our clients and creatively solve landscape issues. A large wooden deck, a stone terrace, and a sinuous stone wall replaced the old deck and steps.

The magnificent swimming pool is now surrounded by warm patterned concrete tiles; the terrace is home to a large overhead wood pergola for shelter from the sun, a stone fireplace for evening entertainment, and a lively cascading waterfall.

This project earned Windsor Companies a Merit Award for Excellence in Landscape Design by the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association.
