Plaza Landscaping of Albert Lea, Minnesota
This southern Minnesota project by Plaza Landscaping of Albert Lea, Minnesota, features retaining walls for shoreline protection and erosion control as well as matching components and complementing pavers in and around the residence.
The design challenge for this large home on Fountain Lake was to create maximum use of the front and back outdoor living spaces. A paving stone driveway, walkways and patios were linked together with hardscape design elements, including retaining walls for slope transition, and a tiered retaining wall that assists with shoreline protection on the lake side of the home. A walkway on one side with a small patio and stairs leading to the paving stone patio under the structural porch, and retaining walls and stair lead down to the lake and a patio with gazebo. The design creates unity with shape and color for this year-round lake home.
