St. Croix Retreat

Sustainable landscape design on the St. Croix

Marine on St. Croix, MN
2015 MNLA Landscape Award

The landscape around this new home on the St. Croix River incorporates many features and principles of more sustainable landscape design. This landscape minimizes lawn area and runoff, uses local materials and features native plantings in its design. The resulting landscape aesthetic is different. The look is local, indigenous, soft and more natural.
