Retaining walls:

Our MN landscape company started building retaining walls over 30 years ago. Our Minneapolis landscape design team consults with structural engineers during the retaining wall design process. A properly engineered and designed retaining wall provides long term stability, beauty and value to steep slope sites. Our skilled retaining wall crews are trained in all aspects of retaining wall construction. While some of the most common retaining wall types that we build are: boulder retaining walls, natural stacked stone retaining walls, interlocking block retaining walls, mortared stone retaining walls and wood timber retaining walls, we also use more exotic materials such as gabion baskets, helical anchors and sheet pile to resolve steep slope issues.

Hardscapes such as patios, retaining walls, walkways, driveways, decks and fences are the foundation of any landscape project. During the conceptual design process our Minneapolis landscape design staff helps determine the size, shape and texture of these critical landscaping elements. Materials we typically use consist of brick, stone, concrete, pavers, wood and composites. Our installation crews realize the importance of a proper foundation and always follow the engineer’s specifications during the landscaping installation process.

General landscaping:

As a Minneapolis landscaping design/build firm we offer comprehensive landscaping services and understand the local landscape. After our MN landscaping design team creates your beautiful landscape plans, our installation crews begin the construction process. Some of the general landscaping items that are included in many of our Minneapolis landscape designs are sod, lawn irrigation, plantings, landscape lighting, edging and mulch.


If you live on a lake or river you need a contractor who understands the unique challenges that these properties present. From the permitting process to the steep slopes and relentless wave action, your project requires an experienced designer and contractor. Natural Environments Corporation has been working on these types of projects since 1983 and our Minneapolis landscape design/build team has the experience to protect and enhance your property. We utilize native plantings and rip rap to armor the shoreline. We use natural stone, concrete or wood to protect the slope and construct a patio and the stairs. We can even build you a custom dock to handle unique shoreline situations. Our experience with the MN DNR and the local governing units helps make the permitting process easier. If you are considering a project on a lake or river contact us today. Learn more about our Minnesota shoreline services.


Storm water management is the fundamental component of almost every landscape design that our MN landscape design team creates. While water is the lifeblood of landscaping, if it is not properly directed it can damage the property and ultimately ruin the landscape project. We are frequently contacted by home owners because they have wet yards or wet basements and they don’t know who to call. We have the answer! Our Minneapolis landscape design team utilizes proper grading, drain tile, waterproofing, lift stations, storm sewers, and rain gardens to permanently resolve the problem. Contact us today for the answer. Learn more about our drainage services.
