Location: Minnetonka Beach, MN

A collection of formal gardens adorn this English manor lakehome. Taking cues from the entry and patio garden form, a large shoreline garden composed of horticultural species arranged in large, flowing masses beckons visitors to the shore. The garden attempts to seamlessly blend with the other gardens of the property. Given it's use of horticultural species and distinct massing, this shoreline has become an progressive precedent for traditional shoreline restoration.
