COMMERCIAL

COMMERCIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: Eden Prairie

The project goals were to update the customer and vendor entrance for better curb appeal and to create a patio location for employees to gather, have lunch and host company events. Barrett Lawn Care began by installing a raised sitting wall with columns and boulder outcroppings.

We used Borgert pavers, Cracovia Minnesota River Blonde, a concrete-exposed aggregate picnic set, Minnesota Northern White Cedar mulch and Gitche Gumee boulders, as well as fresh plantings of Ivory Halo Dogwood, Blueberry Delight Juniper, Walker's Low Catmint and Dwarf Burning Bush.

   

COMMERCIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: St. Paul

This commercial property had many outdated and overgrown planting beds needing improvements. Due to the size of this project, the company chose to take a phased approach, which means the improvements were completed in sections over the course of a couple years. The project goals were to improve the aesthetics of the site, manage storm run-off from roof, build a berm along the street side, update plantings and add mulch and outcroppings.

Barrett Lawn Care used 3-7'' River Rock, Western Red Cedar mulch, Stella De Oro Daylilies, Karl Foerster grass, River Birch trees, Ninebark shrubs and Red Gnome dogwoods to complete this project.

   
   
RESIDENTIAL

RESIDENTIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: St Louis Park

This project began with a home remodel and complete renovation of the landscape. A new fence incorporated a mature silver maple in the southeast corner where shade-loving plants such as: Halcyon Hosta, Branford Beauty Fern, Iron Butterfly Tiarella, and Ann Magnolia were planted. In order to provide interest along the north side fence, house, and garage—a mixture of material like: Skyrocket junipers, Snow Pavement roses, Goldsturm Rudbeckia, and even a Jackman Clematis on a trellis were introduced.

The clients were very interested in a dedicated place to grill while maximizing the use of the deck for entertaining guests. A pad was assembled from walnut-colored Anchor pavers and connected by natural stone steppers. This whole area was anchored by a Pee Gee Hydrangea tree and outcrop boulders. The new sidewalk which stretched across the back yard from the deck to the garage and gate on the east side was designed with the flow of the bed lines in mind.

The front bed tied the existing tree that anchored the southwest corner of the house and the winding sidewalk with the curvilinear bed lines. A mixture of shade loving (Plum Pudding Heuchera & Reinland Astilbe) and sun thriving (Zagreb Coreopsis & Neon Sedum) perennials were established to match the varying conditions in the area.

   

RESIDENTIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: Eden Prairie

The homeowner wanted to remove overgrown shrubs in front of house to change from a traditional, formal feeling to a colorful inviting feel, install plants for full season blooming, as well as add low-voltage lighting to increase curb appeal and to remove overgrown weeds and shrubs around the backyard pond and replace with low maintenance plantings for viewing along the other side of the pond and from the home.

Custom brown mulch, hardwood mulch and limestone outcroppings featured in the design. Plantings included Blue Globe spruce, St. Mary's Broom Blue spruce, Autumn Fire Sedum, Little Lime Hydrangea and Karl Foerster grass.

   

RESIDENTIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: St. Paul

The new homeowner wanted to update the look of the yard to have a cohesive plan instead of mismatched plantings from previous owners; add an irrigation system, establish a defined space for a vegetable garden and create a living fence to separate adjacent neighbor's property.

We used a Hunter™ irrigation controller, Rainbird™ spray heads, and Hunter™ rotary heads for the irrigation system. The patio and yard included Western Red Cedar mulch, plantings of Bloomerang Lilac, Sky Rocket Juniper, Astilbe Fanal, Fireball Hibiscus as well as Flame and Blue Oat grasses.

 

RESIDENTIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: Edina

Landscaping was last portion of a home remodel (adding an addition to the house). The landscape present prior to the remodel was destroyed by the construction, so the homeowners took advantage of the opportunity to make updates to install a raised paver patio above the level of the yard to decrease the elevation from patio to patio door, add a boulder wall along the raised patio to allow for a flat backyard for their children to play, and to support the patio and connect the backyard patio to the front driveway with a paver walkway.

Barrett Lawn Care also installed an irrigation system, graded yard and installed sod, created planting beds and installed plant material and mulch. We used a Hunter™ irrigation controller, Rainbird™ spray heads, and Hunter™ rotary heads for the irrigation system. The patio and yard included Borgert pavers, Minnesota River and 3' Field Stone boulders. New plantings included Midnight Rose and Obsidian Coral Bells, Annabelle Hydrangea, Pink Diamond Hydrangea Tree, Bleeding Hearts, various Hostas, various Astilbe and Western Red Cedar mulch.

 

RESIDENTIAL FEATURED PROJECT
Project Location: Cottage Grove

The homeowner had added sod when the house was first built. After living in the house awhile, the owners had a feeling for how they wanted the backyard to look and feel. In addition to smaller plant material, larger trees were chosen to provide shade for the homeowners sooner.

The project goals were to add a fire pit and paver patio, install plants and mulch and build a small boulder wall along the side of the house to decrease the slope from the front yard to the back yard. 18-30'' boulders were used, as well as installing a Rockwood™ fire pit, petrified seashore flagstone and Western Red Cedar mulch. New plantings were added, including 3' BB Autumn Blaze maple trees, Dropseed grass, Amethyst Coralberry shrubs, Summer Wine Ninebark shrubs, Purple-leaf Sand Cherry shrubs and Tango Weigela.
