The Minnesota Nursery and Landscaped Association has given Field Outdoor Spaces the 2011 Merit Award for full yard residential landscape design. We are excited and honored to have won. The project was installed in phases beginning in 2006 and finishing in 2010. It is rare that we have the opportunity to be part of a project in which the entire landscape, as well as the exterior of the house is renewed. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this project and made it shine.A very special thanks goes out to the home owners who were incredibly receptive to new ideas and went the extra mile to add special touches and plant material of their own to make the landscape even better.
Back Yard and Porch
An indispensable contributor to the project was Colette and Co. Their design changes on the house fit seamlessly into the landscaped making the amazing two story porch the perfect focal point for the backyard. Check out some additional photos at the Garden Minnesota website.
