A wonderful client in this Chanhassen neighborhood, located in a southwest of Minneapolis, MN, which is known for large lots and meandering roads, asked for simple and inviting transitions between the home and its broad, outdoor spaces. A new patio, outdoor kitchen, fire pit space, boulder retaining walls, and extensive plantings were terraced to allow views of their wetland from inside the home. Native wildflowers and grasses replaced non-native plants, and natural stone material used throughout the home’s architecture was extended onto the patios and walkways. The result is a calm landscape that feels at home in its setting.
