Design Project – St. Paul

August 28, 2008

This project just finished up about a week ago. It’s a beautiful home in St. Paul with a site design concentrating on creating outdoor spaces, organic-northwoods-aesthetic, and rainwater managment.  

This backyard has two different gathering spaces; one a bluestone seat-wall set amidst pine trees and a shade garden heavy with fern, Solomon’s seal, goats beard etc.  The second gathering space is a terraced patio system surrounded by rain garden that deals with the water coming from the roof as well as the ground-plain.  We’re looking forward to seeing this space next year when the plants have begun to fill in.
