Theme: Summer Dreams

 Landstyle Design & Construction Ltd, design team has chosen to highlight elements that are unique to outdoor living areas that helps our clients’ dreams come true. Designing an outdoor environment goes far beyond just planting flowers and shrubs. It can mean creating a walkout to your patio area, structures enhances your outdoor space, or merging the elements of natural rocks, fire feature, and a water feature.   Minnesota outdoor season is short enough as it is, so we want to create an outdoor environment that enhances the time you can be spending outside.  

“Our space will mimic an outdoor environment that is welcoming, relaxing, and a sensible space to entertain,” she says. “Many of our features have the ability to make your dreams come true.  If you can dream it we can make it happen. Landstyle is great at creating unique areas to maximize these outdoor spaces.” 

We are proud to offer our services in the Metro Area for 50 years.  Landstyle Design and Construction—a full-service landscape company specializing in paver patios, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, decks, water features, and pergolas—will be offering up possibilities like these and more in their outdoor living display.  Our water feature and fire area will be one of a kind and help you realize your dreams.

To celebrate this year’s Lakeside Garden theme, our display will celebrate all of the natural, rustic beauty found along lakeshores with the use of dramatic boulders, towering trees, and lush plan life. We will blend this rustic lake setting with the modern backyard conveniences of a custom covered pergola and seating area, a place to cook and dine al fesco, and the char of a unique fire feature for friends and family to gather around. Wove into our garden will be an abundance of colorful flowers for all lake visitors to enjoy!

Theme: Artistic Relaxation

The Lakeside garden theme inspired my garden name of "Artistic Relaxation".  The garden is highlighted with a central gazebo created from a antique corn crib. The gazebo has a wine barrel table inviting visitors to relax next to a waterfall flowing into the gazebo.  The water theme is carried from the flowing waterfall into an artistic stream using gravel, smooth beach stones, and blooming hyacinth as the water representation.  The curving outline of the stream is mimicked by the free standing dry stack wall that causes you to follow it through the remaining garden.  The Weeping Alaskan Cedars frame the gazebo as they follow the curved ribs of the structure.  More Cedars are formed in arches along the walkway as you walk through the continuous arbor.  The interesting details will involve an old row boat, fishing rod trellis, fish net gardens, as well as an artistic globe sculpture made from mugo pines!  The large unique garden trees will frame the walkways and direct you to a unique dry stack rock Orb sculpture.  Don't miss the wonderful finished hedges that pull the outdoor rooms together.

Theme: Lake Escape

Our garden will include a boulder from Northern Minnesota out of the taconite mines. The 2,000-6,000-pound boulder will be installed throughout the garden in a boulder-scape format (outcroppings) with areas to plant in between boulders to show a different way to retain slopes instead of a wall. 60-70 tons of boulders will be hauled in, along with pavers and different colored plants.
