Lake Peninsula Majesty

This lakefront property presented a wide array of challenges to the TERRAFIRMA landscape Architects and Horticulturists. The objective from the homeowners was to create a design layout that was unique and would blend well with the architectural style of the home with low maintenance. Additional goals were established during a preliminary meeting and TERRAFIRMA started the design process. A series of meetings took place to create a master plan used to construct the project.

As this picturesque site is on a peninsula with beautiful lake views from almost every window in the home, much consideration was given to this from a design standpoint, as not to inhibit any views as plantings mature. The award winning Unilock brand hardscaping layout consists of terracing, custom planters and steps that enhanced many of the features of the home, along with a strategically placed natural gas fire pit with a seating wall which gives one a nice place to warm up after an evening boat ride.

Careful planning was put into the landscape lighting design. In the evening, this residence stands out like a crown jewel as the lights shimmer off lake waves.
