Windsor CompaniesTraditional Landscape, Minneapolis

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.

8. Common geranium(Pelargonium spp.)Once you know how easy it is to root stem cuttings of geranium, you’re going to wonder why you’ve ever bought any in a nursery. After all, your neighbor probably is growing the perfect one just down the street. But while you can start a new plant simply by taking a small bit of stem, it’s only polite to at least ask before you cut. Common geraniums will often readily root if you just stick a cutting into potting mix, but treating it as you would any other stem cutting can tip the odds even more in your favor. Start with a stem cutting about 4 to 6 inches long. Try to cut at a 45-degree angle directly below a node (or swelling) or below a leaf. When it’s time to root the stem (do this as soon as possible), prepare a pot filled with a propagating mix and poke holes into it with a pencil or a chopstick. Remove the lower leaves from the stem, dip about a quarter of the lower stem in rooting hormone and shake off any excess. Gently place the stem or stems in the prepared pot and firm the surrounding soil. Water well and cover the pot with plastic.
