Entry Gate to Lakeside Patio and Pool

The homeowner wanted a landscape and outdoor entertainment space that would do justice to his exquisite Lake Minnetonka home and enhance opportunities for high level business meetings and entertaining family and friends.

Palm Tree Adds Tropical Element to Patio and Pool

Giant palms are scattered throughout the back patio, bringing a tropical feel to the more contemporary design.

Globe-Shaped Water Feature Next to Infinity Pool

The main focus of the design was the infinity pool. It was positioned so the infinity edge faces the largest view of the lake. The designer created a large, lounging patio for big parties as well as a lower patio for drinks and cigars. The unique water feature with plants breaks up and softens the extensive hardscaping.

Glass-Enclosed Deck With Orange Accents

Four wicker chairs with bright orange cushions provide comfortable, stylish seating around the deck's fire pit. Thanks to the surrounding glass wall, this contemporary outdoor space feels even more warm and intimate.

Lakeside, Terraced Garden

A terraced garden separated by stacked stone retaining walls adds natural beauty and color to the lakeside backyard.

Contemporary Water Feature Flows Through Garden

For maximum visual interest, this outdoor water feature flows straight through a garden of flowerbeds. Where the stone basin complements the walkway to the right, the rusted metal path both naturally suits the greenery and adds warmth to the aesthetic.

Fire Bowl Feature

A flaming fire feature keeps the infinity pool and patio alive well into the evening hours.

Luxurious Pool at Night

The infinity pool glows blue in the evening light, with two fountain spouts on either end.
